who says folgers is the best part of waking up?

My favorite part of the morning is walking the kids to school.
Even if we've had a rough morning and the kids have fought over the elevator buttons down all 31 floors.

Something about the city being awake, bustling, children everywhere.
I get a little buzz off it.
But the absolute favorite part of my morning is this crossing gaurd.
She is a constant for me in an everchanging city.

And she says this. Every. Single. Morning.

I love her.
And I have to fight the urge to hug her.

You walk you kids to school? What a mom!

Don't be too impressed Ginger:-) It's only 2 blocks. And if I wasn't concerned Lily would fly away with some pigeons, I might have them walk alone!

Ha! That's great!

With her accent, I had to listen a couple of times... at first I thought she was calling you "sleepy-eggs!" Love that little shot of early morning NYC energy!

Aren't big cities great? What a nice crossing guard. You can hug her.

I love this and am so glad that you posted it. I loved New York, that whole urban scene, so much. I miss it, too...

This is great! I did not know they had crossing guards in NYC.

My favorite part of the morning is to read your blog. Love your sense of humor. Thank you for putting a smile on my face throughout the day!

Wow. She's so vibrant... so alive. Did you rehearse that with her a few times or tell her you were going to video her cuz she seems so ready to greet you? HAHA. I think I might want to slap someone who greeted me so lively in the morning like that. HAHA (Not a morning person)

I love that you walk them to school - how do they feel about it?...

She's GREAT! And cheery - she must be from New Jersey.
