Strangely, This Doesn't Happen in Our House...

I still have to drag my small people out of bed in the morning. We've begun "practice" for the start of school - they're going to bed early and we're rousting them when we get up. No one likes it, but we've got to get in the habit, or school mornings are going to be hell.

We don't want that, now, do we?

And, it's such a surprise too, that your small ones aren't morning people... I mean, them being YOUR small ones and all...

I can't tell - are you being sarcastic? I AM the morning person in my house, though I'm not sure how much I LIKE that fact because I really am a "smack-in-the-middle-of-the-day" person; neither a true early bird and CERTAINLY not a night-owl. It is undeniable, though, that I'm the first one up and out of bed and the one responsbile for making lunches and making sure that everyone's clothes are on right-side-out before they leave the house. Of course, I'm useless by ten p.m., so anything that happens after dark is mostly Husband's responsibility.

It's a system.

I'll go on record as saying I find it most hilarious that you are the designated morning person in any house. You are so right--You are not, in any real sense of the word, a morning person. My children, the older of whom sees the sun rise far more often than she doesn't, would kill you (or vice versa).

I actually miss getting up early. I like being up late, too, but I need to start seeing 5am from the right side for a while. I can't wait to be able to take SiSi out for coffee/juice on the weekends, while the rest of the house sleeps until way late. Good for them. Good for us.

I can't remember the last time I saw the sunrise! I do remember thinking though,"this looks an awful lot like sunset,but in a different area of the sky. I think I'll catch the p.m. version!" My husband(who IS a morning person) is always amazed whenever I'm up before 8am. I just say "It's not that I CAN'T get up,it's just not my best time of functioning" I seldom turn in 'til way after midnight and then end up reading for another hour or so. Children can DEFINITELY change ones preferred routine.

Yep, that was sarcasm.
Things change, but don't forget that when I met you you were a "don't even talk to me until this ovaltine is gone" kind of morning person.

Lydia is Calvin. Every morning at the lake, when the previous evening I caved to the siren's call of the local vinyeards, Lydia would be smiling in my face at about 7:30 with her Sponge Bob fishing pole. By the way, the Sponge Bob pole is the most durable item I've ever purchased. I bought it at K Mart. Two summers, at least ten catches, and it will make the tour next year. If only Chrysler could put out a product half as reliable as...the Sponge Bob fishing pole at K Mart.

And, hey! You didn't tell me they got free Saikesbeer in Boston Commons! What gives?!

Sorry our rendezvous did not work out. I went to see Taming of the Shrew, though, so I am compensated.
