You know the joy of waking children in the morning? I needed to make it fun… for me. So it became part of my routine to happily flit from room to room, joyfully singing this song to my children. I would dance into the room, pull open the shades and sing to each of them a ridiculous list of all the things they would miss that day if they didn’t get out of bed. I’m pretty certain this is one of those situations where my kids didn’t understand or appreciate my humor, but it made my mornings better.
