Wakey wakey.

There are two mornings in the year that are terrible. They are so very terrible because there is nothing you can do to hide from the fact that there is school that day.
The first terrible morning is the morning after the summer holidays. Like a dark shadow cast over the summer that went on forever, the morning marks the death knell of a season of bare feet and adventures.
The second terrible morning is the morning after the Christmas holidays, the decorations look stale, the tree flops to one side and it isn’t even daylight yet.
That moment looms before you have to wake them up and bring in the morning. I’m a mum alarm clock. I try to be cheery but I think that makes it even worse.
I’ve tried matter of fact but that just makes me sound cold.
I’ve tried distraction, “oh look it’s sunny” but that deepens the despair.
It’s like ripping off a plaster, make it quick, make it over with as soon as possible.
Wakey

  1. Why do you send them to school, when that’s how they feel about it?

  2. Oh I don’t envy you, love… I remember those mornings very well! 😦

  3. I know, you feel like the evil spectre, bearing terrible news…but then, you are! Still, once the kids go back to school, the sun tends to come out and make up for those 6 weeks of rain that we call the “summer holidays”, haha! I hope you all got through that first horrible morning ok. x
