this week's list started last week, when i took the girl to preschool and went to circle her mood on the sign in sheet. but there was no option for her state of being that day. so i gave them a verbal heads up and they appreciated that. clearly it was a list in need of expansion. tammy from daisy yellow got things started with bewildered, giggly, exuberant, and questionable, and from there the rest of the words flowed like wine. it was quite the aha moment when i finished. no wonder days can be so complicated - not only with children, but for all of us. who knows what mood we'll wake up hosting, let alone others in the household? at work? in public? i think we all need our own sign-in sheet every morning. it would be a common courtesy to the rest of the world, a public notice to let others know whether they're in for a trick or a treat from us.
