not unless, Roger, the kids got themselves up and went to school before you yourself got up and went to work
What’s this air horn doing by the notepad?
On those days when I had reveille duty, a water pistol was most effective.
Maybe the kids not having a competent parent to supervise them for a couple of days might be good for them in the long run.
Recently, my 16-year-old daughter had slept through her alarm for a few days in a row. I told her, “You’ve either got to go to bed earlier, or figure out a better way to get YOURSELF up.” She knew I meant it; she hasn’t slept through the alarm since. (I laid down the law early that I am NOT the girls’ servant; when the oldest was in kindergarten she asked me to carry her backpack for her. My answer: “I’m not your pack mule.”)
Yeah, this hits too close to home for me – this is my house. Thank goodness for mom.
OK, Peter and Paige wanting to skip school, that I get. But Jason?
My tone deaf dad singing “You are My Sunshine” at the top of his lungs. That was scary. Evil, too, since I’m one of those people who will wake up completely the moment someone enters the room.
I don’t watch “Fresh Off the Boat”, but I accidentally saw a bit of one show once. Mom got her son up by holding his nose closed… ☺
Well, this is off to a good start.
