I dream about sleeping-in on the weekends. (Pun intended!) That never happens. Even if my husband gets up with Isabelle, I’m inevitably awaken by 7:00 a.m. since I hear her.
So wouldn’t you know that Isabelle chose a Thursday, a Thursday when we have school, to sleep past her “alarm clock.” (We don’t set the alarm. She has an OK to Wake alarm clock, which turns green when it’s okay for her to call for us.)
And she didn’t wake up a mere 15 minutes past the time her clock turns green. No, no. She didn’t wake up ’til 8:00 a.m!
So what did I do? I watched “CBS This Morning,” did some extra stretches, took my time with my makeup, and ate a leisurely breakfast. She began stirring at 7:54 a.m., which was about the time I started cleaning my breakfast dishes (and freaking out about how we’d get to school by 9:00 a.m.)
Here’s what her wake-up sounded like (As you’ll hear, she was perplexed by why the clock wasn’t green!):
Maybe she’ll wake up at 8:00 a.m. one day this weekend. Hahaha. Who am I kidding? She might’ve been an unreliable alarm clock today, but this child wakes us up no later than 7:00 a.m. nearly every day the rest of the year. (NOTE: I realize I’ll lament about her late wake-up habits about 10 years from now.)
