It’s a great morning. You’re up, feeling carefree. Wow! What a magical moment. That’s a rare moment for a mom.

There isn’t a morning when you don’t jump out of bed to wake the kids up and make breakfast. That’s just part and parcel of being a mom. You think of what you have to do first thing in the morning. In most cases, all the things you have to do are for other people and not yourself.
