Rise and Shine

I was going to blog this about 3 or 4 weeks ago and sort of got busy and forgot. But, it happened again this morning, as well as several other times in between, which has forced me to reconsider it as my post of choice for today.

In order to get him to school on time, I wake my son up each day at 6:30am. And, in fact, I'm usually not done blow drying my hair by then, so he normally gets to sleep until about 6:40. Some people are blessed with children who jump out of bed ready to greet the day...this is not the case with me. Everyday, we have the same scene. I try to coerce him out of bed. He sleeps on the top bunk. I'm not very tall. He knows if he moves over toward the wall, I can't reach him, so he rolls all the way to the side and goes back to sleep. I pester him to get up. He moans, he complains, he whines, he cries. It's all very ugly and by the time I actually get him out of bed, I'm so tired, I'd like to get back in mine. If he could, he would easily sleep until 8:00am each day, with one exception...

Each and every Saturday morning, while I am peacefully attempting to sleep in, he comes in at 6:30am sharp to wake ME up.

Coerce him with the snow... haha It's a nice little bargaining chip. :D I have the opposite problem, mine wakes up all happy, but try going to bed...impossible.
