Choose Happiness

Every morning Mason struggles to get out of bed and get ready for school. When he finally get's up, he's crabby. This troubles me for a number of reasons, but mostly because I want him to understand that he gets to choose his mood. He makes the choice to be happy or crabby. After almost six months of crabby mornings, he's getting it. If he starts to fall into that habit of crabbing, all I have to say is, "You get to pick the kind of day you're going to have. Are you going to have sad day or a happy day?" He will smile and say, "Happy!"

If a six year old little boy can realize that he can choose happiness, can't you?
