The Lovely Snooze Button
This is so me. Every morning.
Although, I like to think I've gotten better. I only hit the snooze button a couple of times now. Used to drive Coach nuts.... I'd set my alarm for an hour before I had to actually be up. I knew I'd hit the snooze button that many times.
Sadly, I think my kids may be the same way. Jock isn't so bad, he just forgets to set his alarm at all and waits for me to get him up. Backfired on him this morning when I didn't get him up until 20 minutes before he had to catch the bus for school! Bug is turning out just like me. He might actually be worse. He doesn't even ever remember hearing the alarm go off, let alone hitting the snooze button. And then when I come in to wake him? He rolls right back over after I leave and goes to sleep again. On really bad mornings, he'll actually get up.... but then he'll walk down the hall into my room and crash on my bed.
And if you think all of this extra snoozing makes any of us more cheerful in the mornings? You would be sadly mistaken, my friends. The boys grunt. Me... I just snap at anyone lacking the wisdom to keep their distance. I am not a morning person. I don't think I'm even much of a mid-day person. And God help you if you happen to be on the other end of the phone when you call and wake me up. Trust me. I'm not a nice person. Its not something you want to witness first hand. My own mother has even stopped calling me early in the morning to wish me a happy birthday. (Because apparently, nothing says "I love you" more than calling the birthday girl at the butt-crack of dawn. Its not like I was even born in the morning! I wasn't! But my brothers picked up this nasty habit as well. They don't do it anymore, either!) I'm not entirely sure, but I think there was some rudeness and disrespect on my part directed towards her. So in the interest of maintaining family love.... Coach and I have both warned my entire family that they might want to wait until later in the day. :)
So I'm curious. Anyone else out there with an allergy to getting out of bed the first time, every time? I can't be the only one.
