My Life at 6:00 a.m.
When Elliot wakes up in the morning, he usually comes right in to wake me up ask me for some "hot milk". Then we go into the kitchen, get his hot milk, and I stumble around and put on a show for him to watch while he sits in his special rocking chair. He sits there covered in his favorite red blankie and drinks his hot milk, and relaxes for a while before he starts playing. Yesterday morning (which happened to be much earlier than the norm), when we did the usual, he found that his new dragon costume was laid out on the couch with some other laundry that needed to go on hangers. Of course, the everyday mundane routine wouldn't do. The dragon had to have hot milk. The dragon needed to watch a show. And the dragon had to have it's picture taken. Somehow I managed to oblige despite my half-asleep state. I love my little dragon.
