It seems like I spend every morning trying to get my 14 year-old daughter up out of bed and off to school. Some days are easier than others.
Mom did the same thing with me. I hated to get up out of my warm bed. Most mornings Mom would yell at me to wake up.
“GET UP OR YOU’LL BE LATE FOR SCHOOL!”
As a student at Holy Name of Jesus, I was late often. Probably late more than any student; this with living right across the street from school. I was lazy. Didn’t want to do anything.
What kid likes to get up anyway?
I was never a morning person; to this day I still struggle with it. If it was up to me, I’d sleep in every day.
As a teenager I hated getting up.
For a short time I was enrolled at John Jay, I loved the 12 noon to 5 pm session.
Thank God all that changed.
