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.
