Rise and Shine!
Haley is not a morning person. (OK. It's relative. After 7:30, all bets are off, but before then...) Anyway, when we wake her on weekdays, usually around 6:00 or 6:15, she grumbles and complains about being tired or sick. She came up with a new one the other day. Me: Haaaleeeey...time to get up. Haley: *grumble* Me (shaking Haley): Come on, Noodle. Get up. Haley (stretching): *grumble* Me: Got to get up so you can get ready for school, sweetie. Haley (sitting up): I didn't tell you but I had to go the doctor at school yesterday. (She calls the school nurse the doctor.) Kelsee: Really? Haley: Yeah. She said I was sick and that I should stay home today. Yes, it was a lie, a fib, a fabrication. We still busted a gut. She didn't stay home, however, much to her chagrin.
