When my daughter was younger, she was the spitting image of Merida (she even got into archery before the movie came out!) She is, in many ways, just like me. Which means, she is not a morning person. I can count on 1 hand the number of times she got up by herself for high school. Well today, I got to add one more finger to that count. Today is my younger son’s birthday. His sister is going to a track meet and will be missing most of the day. She wanted to do something special for her little brother, so she got up early (5:15 am) on her own and made breakfast for him (bacon, chocolate-chip pancakes, & banana-nut muffins). She even topped off his pancake with a 10 candle!
