How to be AWESOME in Life! - written by a 9 year old

My 9 years old daughter has been wanting to write a blog post of her own so today's post is about how to be AWESOME in life according to her.

Step 1: Get a pair of  roller skates or ice skates and do an cool trick.
While skating forward try to lift your leg up without falling over. Make sure you practice a lot by staying still in your skates and see if you can lift your leg. Once you do that then try to go move forward very slow.

Step 2: If you like to draw, do it in a cool way.
Draw something that you like. You could draw a butterfly or something else from nature. Next you should post it online so everyone can see it.

Step 3: Play a cool video game or board game.
I don't know how this would help you be AWESOME but is just something fun to do. It's better to play with friends or your family. It not that fun when you play alone.

Step 4: Get a cute pair of clothes.
I don't know how this would help you be AWESOME but if you are in school it will help you look cool. If you wear a uniform to school just try to look cute by putting a headband in your hair. If your a boy just comb your hair because boys don't comb their hair.

Step 5: If none of these steps help you just be who you are.
Just be who you are. You don't have to follow my rules to have an AWESOME life just be you.

School Days and the Morning Time

Every morning during school time my 9 year old daughter does NOT want to get ready for school. We are constantly in a disagreement over what she should do in the morning. Does she not get dress? Refuses to brush her hair? Forgets to eat breakfast? 
The answer to that is YES!
She does these things because she is reading. Constantly. 

Every morning my daughter will start the day by reading and will immediately forget that she needs to get ready for school. I am constantly reminding...okay yelling at her to get dressed and get ready. I have even gone as far as telling her there will be NO reading until she is finished with everything. That seemed to backfire on me. She will sneak away into the bathroom to read and tell me she is getting dressed. 

Don't get me wrong. I love the fact that she is a book worm but there is a time and place for everything.

What can be done to make the morning time better? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
