Waking Up Is Hard To Do.

The holidays are behind us and we’re back on schedule – well, trying to at least.  Monday  morning came way too soon for us all.  As we dragged ourselves out of a warm bed and post holiday slumber, I went to wake the girls.  We try to have the girls awake at least one hour before we have to leave for school/work.  And, we want them to wake up slowly.  It’s only fair – no one wants to be rushed in the morning.  They shouldn’t feel the hurried stress of starting the day.

So, I start by opening their door with the hopes that they will wake up from my activities in the kitchen.  Unsuccessful.  I then go in and whisper ‘good morning’ with the hopes they will awake.  Unsuccessful.  After all, they’ve just had two weeks of ‘flex schedules’ and waking up a little later every day.  Pulling the covers over their heads they groan “I’m so tired.” I promise a Saturday of staying in bed, cuddling, eating pancakes and watching cartoons.  I am sooooo looking forward to that.  And then it hits me.

While waking up is hard to do during the week, come Saturday our house hold will be back on schedule – rising before the sun comes up.
