How has your week gone? Getting up an hour earlier with DST and all that? I use to get up at 5:45 am, but, now my body feels like it is 4:45 am. It takes us a while to adjust, right?
It has been especially hard for our girls. I usually get them up around 6:30 am so they are ready to begin school at 8:00. However, there bodies are still telling them that, regardless of what the clock says, it is still 5:30 am.
The first day, Monday, I was going to be a nice guy. Open their doors and with a tender loving voice say "Girls, it's 6:30, time to get up."
The reaction that I got from my oldest was, well...it was rude. And, it only encouraged me to crank it up to 11.
On Tuesday, all pretenses of gentleness were gone. I brought my trombone up stairs a blew morning reveille. Oh, that went over very well.
This morning, I brought up a Raffi track, "Rise and Shine." That prompted the eldest to come out of her room looking for blood.
"Look" I said, "I wanted to do this the nice way, you made it hard."
So, I have two more days and am open to any suggestions to harass the young'ns.
