My baby’s been waking me up at 5 am each morning eager and ready for the day. Me–not so much. Some things make waking up early easier, and for this non-coffee drinker, a walk on the beach helps. Of course, most of the year I don’t have that luxury. But a year ago we were in the Maldives with our toddler and a pregnant belly and she was getting me up early. We’d grab some breakfast to go and creep out of the villa so Hubby could sleep. She and I would wander up and down the beach or just sit on our back deck. These water hens learned very quickly that a certain 2 year old loved sharing her breakfast bread with them. They’d show up every morning eager and ready for the day, much like my baby was this morning.
