Cup O Joe
Kira has to be outside at the bus stop before the sun comes up. Doesn't that seem a bit harsh? It is. It's brutal. Now it's getting to be winter so it's getting cold and it's still pitch dark when she's out there waiting. She HATES it. She's tired and cold and understandably doesn't want to get on a stupid school bus before seven a.m. The other day while I was pouring myself a cup of coffee she said, "I'm so cold, pour me a cup-o-joe will ya?" So I did. Then she said, "I'm not going to be able to finish this before the bus comes so I'm just going to drink it outside and then I'll put the cup in the grass and you can pick it up later, okay?" So that's what she did. She took her little penguin mug outside and drank her morning cup-o-joe while waiting for the bus. And now she does it every day. Weird? A little bit. I wanted to take a picture of her but it's pitch dark and cold outside. I'm not going out there! Are you nuts?!
