I am NOT a morning person. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Well, unless you count staying UP until 2-3 a.m. as being a morning person.
Growing up, I’d stay up super late and get up…super late.
My boys on the other hand, I’m pretty sure they’re up before the rooster. They now wake up before (and the alarm clock) on weekdays. For me, that has maybe happened a handful of times in my life.
BTW I’ve never noticed until now there’s not ‘e’ in snooz on my clock!
Until about 6 months ago, my alarm clock would go off at 7am, I’d hit the snooze button for a bit of extra sleep and then I’d go wake the boys up and get them ready for school. Waking them up was typically pretty easy, too. I’d go in, call their names and they’d get up. There was no wiggling them or glasses of water to the face. Just, “Buddy, time to wake up.”
The funny part about this is… it used to be that on school days, waking them up, they’d get up ok, but talk about wanting to keep sleeping and that it was too hard to wake up. Then Saturday and Sunday would come around and they’d be up BEFORE the time they’d get up for school on the weekdays.
Now, my alarm clock goes off, I STILL hit the snooze button, but when I go to wake the boys up, their beds are already empty. They’re either upstairs watching cartoons or playing on the computer. I don’t mind, it gives them time to relax before they head out for a day of learning!
Is your child a morning person? Do they get it from you?
