For this week’s writer’s workshop I chose the following prompt:
1.) Is your child a morning person? Share a story, picture or list of reasons that supports your opinion.
My daughter is a morning person. She didn’t used to be. Quite the opposite. I used to have to wake her up in the morning by taking off her covers and pulling her out of bed.
But somewhere along the line all that changed.
I might want to also mention that she is a night owl. There are nights she is still awake in her room when I am going to bed.
So I guess what this really means is that she doesn’t need much sleep.
She did NOT get this from me. I am not the parent that can function on 4 or 5 hours of sleep like someone in my house that I know.
I can’t tell you how many times I wake up to find her
destroying playing in her room in the morning. She looks at me as if to say “well, I see you have finally gotten your lazy butt out of bed.”
I have to tell you that I am completely non-functional before 6am. And I really prefer not to get up before 7am.
Now the real test will be when she is a teenager. My youngest stepson used to be a morning person and now as a teen barely makes up by 10.
Only time will tell if she keeps it up. Meanwhile, pass the coffee please.
