7 Ways To Turn Around A Grumpy Morning

Big love to our first ever guest blogger Christina Kolb from agentlemother.com. I consider myself a morning person.  I’d rather wake up early than stay up late. Given enough coffee, I could easily be bright eyed and bushy tailed by 6:30.Most days.  But some days… are just rough right from the beginning.  Either I, or one of the kids, or all of us, wake up on the wrong side of the bed and it snowballs from there.  I can usually tell within a few minutes of waking up if it’s going to be one of those days.  And we all know, once you start on that trajectory, it can be a disaster of one thing after another.  So I’ve developed...
