Sun up, sun down

Today started with smiles. Well, after the fog of waking up 40 minutes late lifted, there were smiles.

Before her fog lifted, Maxine was smiling. Today was a field trip (and a bus ride -- we live too close to school for the bus). Just the mention of the field trip had a grin on her sleepy face.

Fast forward 14 hours. The day ended with tears. Her hair, wind-blown from the field trip, was a mess of knots. I tried to get the brush through it just once and quit. I walked away and when I came back, the tears were flowing.

I am just hoping that tomorrow starts again with smiles.
