You finish the sentence for yourself. What would you say? In the morning, I’m __________. Are you cranky? Are you snuggly? Are you sleepy or any of the other seven dwarfs?
I suppose I’m several things.
First, In the morning, I’m mom’s alarm clock. I wake up and make little chirpy noises and I snort. I snort LOUD to wake mom up. Did you know that she hasn’t had to set an alarm in over a year because of my kind nature in waking her up? Amazing isn’t it? A real live alarm clock. I know you want one too.
Second, In the mornings I’m hungry. Oh yeah – news flash there huh? Don’t laugh. Stop. I can see you laughing – LOL. I gotta have my piggy chow and cheerios. After that, my hunger is gone for at least a little while.
Then, In the morning, I’m snuggly cuddly. Momma says so. I jump on the sofa with mom, curl up next to her legs and she wraps us in our blankie. We watch the morning news together. Okay, well I usually fall back to sleep with mom stroking my back but I’m still snuggy.
Fourth of all, before mom goes to the worky place, in the mornings, I’m doing the piggy potty dance. I’m sure you can relate to the human potty dance. I run to my potty patch and take care of my business. Afterwards, mom puts me in bed, kisses me good day and I crash for a couple of hours.
So, you tell me – In the mornings, I’m ____ ?
