purplefibermom looking forward and not back
Number 1 son claimed he had the alarm set up correctly, but I noticed that there was no light, movement or sound coming from his room at 6:24. His ride was coming at 6:25 – Opened the door and gave warning – he made the ride. This afternoon he swore that the alarm MUST be broken, as he had tested it etc. Ha! He had the radio tuned to white noise.
Youngest gets up next at 7 – I peeked in at 7:15 – the alarm hadn’t been set. I woke him up and he was ready for HIS ride on time. I need to cut him more slack as he’s 7. We will work on setting the alarm correctly together each night. He had been doing it everyday – just sleeping through.
My daughter needed to leave by 8:15. She is my worst offender – and yet she came through this morning! Her alarm was LOUD, but she woke up and got ready without my having to nag her at all.
I think the fact that she had to take the bus yesterday with 5 minutes to get ready gave her some motivation. She prefers to get a ride with me so she can go in early & help with animals or visit with friends.
I’m giving them a week of breaking in & warnings before ultimate too bad so sad consequences set in.
