Last August we had our first giveaway with Traci McGrath at A Kids Day: A Simple Way To A Simpler Day, and it was a lot of fun. In the post I talked about how Traci’s daily rhythm board helped me simplify my life and get a bit more organized; you can check out the post here. Then this past spring Traci sent me her newest morning rhythm board to try. It was nearing the end of the school year and Addi and I were both tired and a bit out of sorts. We needed some inspiration and a fresh way to connect.

Then it arrived, and as you can see it is beautiful. This 8”x 10” hard art board with textured watercolor papers turned out to be just the lift we needed to keep us going by removing the “nagging” on my part (yes, I’ve been known to nag, and even moan…I’m only human). Traci made us personalized leaf magnets, and each morning Addi climbed into my lap on the rocking chair to choose the order for the morning’s events while we looked out the window (my partner took some lovely pictures, but I can’t find them for the life of me!). It was a beautiful way to connect with my daughter and empower her to take charge of her mornings.
