GOOD MORNING!

There is no alarm clock in the world that will wake you up better than a toddler can.

Because nothing says "Good morning" Like being poked in the eye by the finger of a small child.

"Hiyo mom................You wake?"

"Open eyes" (poke) "You wake mom?" (poke poke) "Open eyes mom." (poke, poke, poke)

My favorite way to wake up is a toddler doing the pee pee dance next to my bed! "Mommy, I need to go pee pee!!!!"

Awe, the joys of motherhood!

I have that exact same type of alarm clock!

Jo said...

Mine is pretty much the same, but the moniker is Bam-maw, instead of mom.

Bonnie said...

lol. I particularly like being woke up with thud, grunt, bang, screaching crying as my children fight right next to my head. Pokes in the eye are my next favorite.

Melissa said...

I'd rather be woken up with a poke than a loud crash...

And that bothers you?

Aw kids! You got to love them or you just might have to get up and BEAT them!! heh heh! Ok, not really but sometimes when I get woke up in something similar to this manner, it makes me want to scream:(

poked in the eye! I love it. And you can't even get mad because you crack open the poked eye and see that sweet little face... LOL GOOD MORNING (afternoon by the time I'm replying, but you get my drift)

Classic. I have the same model of alarm clock too. It's the one that always seems to find the most tender part of my eye to poke. Did you get yours at Bed, Bath and Beyond like I did?

gotta love those momeents of being a mom. Kind of makes the saying
"Rasing children is like being pecked to death by a duck!"
a little more real. I get screaming-MOM
are you awake?
I am now.

I feel your pain, sister.
Quite literally.
My alarm clock has the ability to smell like poo, also. I think that must be a bonus feature.

Jen said...

Thanks toddler. I am awake now! I guess the only response to that is to grab them and kiss them all over their face to make them pay for their sins.

I loved it when Bug got old enough to realize that coffee was a good mommy waker-upper. One cup of water with a big handful of coffee grinds floating in it tastes reeeealy good at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning. mmmm mmm mmmmm! LOL!
