I have a funny Story to tell you all. If you know me from Twitter, you know that I have a weird sense of humor and my kids have inherited that also.
So with me being on Pain killers, some heavy duty ones I might say, the kids are just having a ball with me, because apparently when I sort of wake up, after I take them and have fallen asleep, I forget what dimension I am in. I apparently have greeted my kids several times like I have not seen them for a year or so, have agreed on letting them hold wild parties and funky sleepovers. Buying things for them, and have had conversations with them that include forcing them to eat Brownies. If I see a youtube video about me like that on the Internet, they better run and hide really good.
Well with that also comes that I am not exactly on top of things and that includes getting my daughter up in the morning this week to go to school. I either sleep to good, and not hear the alarm clock or do what I did yesterday. And that is the funny Story.
I got a new Skype phone from a friend and I played around with it and found that it had an Alarm on it. So I set the Alarm for 6:30 am to get my daughter up for school. And I wanted to see if it worked and how it sounded.
Well 6:30 came and the Alarm went off, I heard it, got up and went out to the Living room turned it off after I found the right button, and went back to bed and to sleep. All the while thinking oh that Alarm clock sounds great. You see where I am going with this?
So next I wake up with my Daughter hovering over me, and going : Thank you for waking me up. It is 7:14 am, I had no time to wash my hair, it looks all icky, and Beth is going to be here soon, and I won’t have time to eat my Breakfast. You want the rest of my toast? All the while I am laying there wondering what the heck is going on? What happened? Did I miss something?
So all confused I got up, while she was grabbing her Backpack and mumbling out the door, that Life is just weird and she is hungry and wants to finish eating her Breakfast.
She got home in the afternoon with her boyfriend, and my Son and his girlfriend walked in at the same time also and the fun began. I told them all what a start to the day I had with my daughter just hovering over me and all. All of them were laughing, my daughter was denying that it was that bad. She asked that when I got up and turned the phone off, if I didn’t realize why I got up at 6:30 am? That I just got up for no apparent reason? I said, no I got up and was excited because the Alarm on the phone worked and that it sounded nice and went back to bed. Well you know that everyone was cracking up with that answer, which is true. So everyone was asking why she doesn’t set her Alarms and get up when they go off, and she said, she sleeps trough them. She tried that before and it doesn’t work. That the only thing that wakes her up is her Moms voice saying: Alex, rise and shine Sweetheart. Time to get up. Isn’t that sweet?
So this morning, I really had the intention of waking her up. I set 2 Alarm clocks, honestly I did. Well I got woken up by my daughter saying: Are you ever going to wake me up again? I don’t know what happened. I do not recall hearing any alarms or anything.
But I did go and make her toast with jam on it, so she could have breakfast before her ride came to pick her up, and I gave her kiss on her forehead and wished her a wonderful day. So I did not fall that much out of her good graces for today.
