Waking Up is Hard to Do

It’s back to school season. As of tomorrow all four of the boys will be back in school. Doing the happy dance!

But along with that comes early mornings, grumpy boys and pre-coffee cranky Ima. I am lucky that my boys don’t give me tooooo much trouble in the mornings, but there are mornings that I would rather not relive.

How do you get your kids up in the morning or do they get themselves up? How much time is there from wake- up to bus pick-up / leaving for school? How were you woken up as a child?

If your kids won’t wake up and miss the bus, do you make them pay for a cab to school from their own money or do you do the helicopter parent thing and just take them?

Curious how it all works in your house.
