The Morning Routine

We, pretty much, have our morning routine down pack. Ethan tends to wake up, on his own around 5:45. That gives us 45 minutes to have breakfast, brush our teeth, get the uniform on, and set out for school. But sometimes, Ethan wakes up between 4 and 5, and comes to our bed to sleep. On these days, he doesn't wake up at 5:45. I'll head into the bedroom to get ready, and turn the light on, thinking this would get him stirring. By 6am, if he's still asleep, we try to coax him to wake. It doesn't work, and if he does wake up, he's in a foul mood.

Last week, the Grade 1s had their assembly. They presented a dance to the Wave the Flag song. Suddenly this became Ethan's theme song.

If Ethan is still asleep at 6am, we play the song, and suddenly he wakes up. Dancing!

What a great way to start the day!

I SO need a theme song! If that's all it takes to get going in the morning, I should give it a try!

Stopping in from LBS. Hope you had a great weekend!
