ok... fairly normal morning.
have a lovely, hot cup of Irish tea
watch the news
let the dog out
hmmm...shouldn't Cass be up?
(this is a loaded question-teenagers don't take this well-should i ask??? incur wrath :0)
In fairness, I ask this questions to her 2-3 mornings a week. It's usually met with closed eyes and a grumble that the alarm is set and she has somewhere between 30 seconds and 2 1/2 minutes more of sleep UGHH
i tip toe down the stairs to her room...
sweetly open her door
stair down at my gorgeous, beloved child
gently nudge her..."darling...sweetness & light...shouldn't you be up?" (utters her loving and kind, full of wisdom mother)
What time is it?
eyes flash open, panic look ensues)
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH (think look from McCully Culkin in HOME ALONE- when aftershave goes on his face)
I'm going to be late! My alarm clock didn't go off!!!!
Hysterical run thru the house to brush teeth, find shoes, jeans etc...
Ok we..er she makes it to the door in just minutes...out she goes...
You know the drill...run hysterically thru the house. Tear apart the couch look thru the dirty clothes etc...
We have keys for EVERYONE it seems in our county. Now..they are not marked we don't know who's key is whose, there must be 75 of them..but you get the picture. Dig thru ALL those.
Anyway...my keys in my car...on their way to her school! (sigh)
what's a mom to do?
How has your morning been so far?
