On school days, it's always about who's responsible for getting the kids to school. It's like an ongoing joke back and forth between my wife and me in terms of who has the better excuse to not have that responsibility. At the end of the day, we actually always end up sharing it equally, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
Pat Lange, with dog Trouper
My first thought is always, "Thank you! I am so glad to be alive and well. Life is good. And now it's time to take the dog out."
Pam Flynn, with dog Baby Boy
Martial arts instructor/manager
My first thought when I wake up is, "What does God have in store for me today? I'm open to whatever it is. Whatever he throws at me, I know it won't be more than I can handle."
It's always about the kids, and everything I need to do in order to get them off to school, ready and well-prepared for their day. After that, I think about everything I need to accomplish while they're in school.
It's always about where I need to get my kids, whether it is school, camp or a doctor's appointment. And how I'm going to get them there on time without being late for work myself.
