Before I had kids, my alarm would sound every morning at 6 a.m. It was a loud and obnoxious reminder that I had to drag myself out of bed and get ready for work. Each morning I would reach over and smack down on the snooze button. I just needed ten extra minutes of peace before my day began.
My alarm still sounds at 6 a.m. but now it is not a serious of insufferable beeps, it is music to my ears. My little girls have become opera singers.
They do not wake up screaming or yelling. They begin with a soft ahhh, followed by ahhHHH, ending with AHHHHHH in perfect pitch! They work together to get it just right.
There is no snooze button so my husband and I jump out of bed and head straight for their room. As soon as we open their door they begin laughing as if we entered with a joke.
This is a fantastic way to wake up. I am not looking forward to the BEEP BEEP sound that will once again fill my ears when I return to work. Luckily that is still a couple of years away.
For now, I will enjoy the lovely music that wakes me from my slumber each and every day.
