1) I realise I’m probably in a minority here, but part of me loves Monday mornings – a time to catch up, clean up, tidy up.
2) Thanks in part to the kids working hard to get ahead on their chores this evening, the house is now fairly clean and tidy, laundry done, packed lunches made, and I feel ready for my evening, and my week.
3) A struggles a little with a part of his homework this afternoon – a situation which, six months ago, would have reduced him to tears. He battles on however and, a little while later, finds the solution himself. He’s growing up. 🙂
