Morning time is fun around here. Katie is really hard to get up. She’s not a morning person at all. If it were up to her, she’d sleep til 11:00 every day. And they go to bed at 8:00! She’s just like her daddy.
Hannah is more like me. She’s an early riser and can pretty much pop right out of bed.
So, I’ve had to resort to some pretty crazy antics to get Katie up in the morning. I have several different acts in my arsenal, but probably my most favorite (and the girls’ too) is my Macho Man Randy Savage wake-up call. Remember him? From the WWF?
It goes like this: “Oooohh Yeahhhh! You gotta get up, girls! Ooooh Yeaaaahhh!”
And then there is the sweet, little song that my daddy used to sing to us when we were little:
“Wake up little Rose Buds~Wake up.” He would sing that so sweetly to us, then yank us out of bed by our ankles and tickle us to death! The girls like that one too.
And then I have my very own song that I made up. I try to rap it, but I’m pretty sure it just sounds ridiculous. It goes like this:
“I said GET UP! You sleepy heads! Get that BOOTY outta bed! I said WAKE UP! You sleepy heads! And get those BOOTIES out of bed!”
Yeah, I know, I should been a song writer. I get that all the time.
So, this morning I’m curious as to what you guys all do or used to do to get your little chilluns out of bed. ??? Maybe you got some tips you can share!
