I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date

Bet you thought this was going to be an Alice In Wonderland post, didn't you?!?  Well, it's not.  This post is all about how getting up in the morning sucks!  My alarm goes off and I hit the snooze a whole bunch of times.   I don't count because 1) I'm not a morning person, 2) I barely function without my coffee, 3) I barely function before 9am, 4) there's nothing I hate more than that annoying sound (which does not explain why I continue to hit the snooze- I get to hear it over and over and over.

Unfortunately, this must be genetic as Jazz and Lyric are most definitely not morning people.  Jazz used to be: early to bed, early to rise, just like her dad.  Not so much anymore.  Lyric has never, ever, ever been a morning person.

In the morning, I try to be nice when I wake them up, but really the only way to get them to move is to be loud...repeatedly.  This makes mornings at our house one big fat pain in the hind end.

So, let me ask, does anybody have any ideas on how to help this part of our morning run a little smoother (or quieter)?  I'm open to suggestions.

I'm so not a morning person either! Luckily the kids usually get up soon after the alarm and I don't usually have to bug them. They are slow to get ready though so I try to make sure they have stuff ready to go the night before

Your guess is as good as mine… I have 3 sons and getting them up each day is a job in itself. I go in their room, wake them up (or at least that’s what I think I did) listen to the grunts, groans and the “Ok Ma, I’m up I’m up’s” only to find 5 min later there knocked out again. This goes one for at least a good 10 to 15 min. Soooo… I guess I’m no help on this one, maybe I can be of some assistance next time. Until I read again… (Smile)
