Drama in the Morning (Photostory)
It's about 6am and Ciana is still sleeping soundly. That will change soon because this is about the time Leslie gets the kids up and ready to start their day. She always prays for a drama-free morning. It makes getting to work on time, much more feasible.
(That dresser is the one from the nursery set. Eventually, I will paint the top.)
Leslie enters Ciana's room and stares at her for a while. She enjoys seeing her sleeping so peacefully.
She bends down to pick up Ciana's sleeping buddy, Cuddles.
"Ciana? (pause) Good morning sweetie. It's time to get up." (Leslie)
Ciana lifts herself up and stretches a little bit.
"Are you ready to have a wonderful day?" (Leslie)
"Here, you hold Cuddles, while I get your clothes ready." (Leslie)
Leslie turns on the light, then heads to the closet.
"How about a cute little dress, today?" (Leslie)
"I want to help, Mommy." (Ciana)
"Here we go." (Leslie)
"No Mommy. I want to wear the pink one." (Ciana)
"What pink one?" (Leslie)
"That one!" (Ciana)
"This one?" (Leslie)
"YES!" (Ciana, excitedly)
Leslie gathers clean underwear and Ciana decides to squeeze in a little play time.
"Honey, it's not time to play. We have to finish getting ready." (Leslie)
"But I have to .... I have to write sumtin for my teacher." (Ciana)
"Okay, you have a few minutes. I'll be back in a second, then we get dressed. Okay?" (Leslie)
Leslie returns after a trip to the bathroom and of course Ciana is still working on her project.
Leslie finally has to remove her from the desk or else be late for work....again.
Leslie used to pick out clothes the night before, but Ciana always changed her mind about what she wanted to wear. It proved to be just as time consuming as selecting clothes in the morning.
