I have never once claimed to be a morning person. In fact, all the woman in my family are NOT morning people. Of course, my daughter is not a morning person either. So why is it that grouchy people can talk with one another in the morning time and be just fine? But then you throw that "morning person" in the mix that tries to talk to you and you literally want to rip their head off? Does not seem fair, but that's the price you pay for marrying or living with a person that loathes the mornings.
My step dad (the best man in the entire world) used to try SO hard in the mornings with me and my Mom. He still tries, to no avail, with my Mom to get her to be a morning person. He brings her coffee and toast every morning. I bet you could count on one hand how many times she has responded nicely to him. God LOVE Papa Ken!!
I remember when I was in high school, I would get up in the morning and PRAY that he was not in the bathroom getting ready for work. Because if he was, I would have to walk by him and hear him say "Good Morning!" with as much happiness as one man could hold. And I am embarrassed to say, that I never said anything back.
I walked into my daughter's room this morning to get her up for school today and she said "Leave me along Mama, I want to go back to sleep!" And my response to her? "I will leave you alone after I beat you child!" Awe, a mother's love, there is nothing better.
