Two Writing Teachers
Stay up late
Remind mom it's late start
Ignore pleas to get to bed and turn off phones
Set alarm for 8:15
Need a wake up body shake at 8:20
No rush to get out of bed
Call "all phones off" at 10:00 - get response, "It's late start, mom!"
Remind oldest at 11:15 that she needs to go to bed - get response, "It's late start, mom!"
Fall asleep - really crash - at 11:30
Alarm beeps and screams at 6:30
Pound alarm button
Decide you need a late start, too
7:45 wake up
Decide you can take a really quick shower
7:51 finally get up
Ready at 8:25
Hair doesn't look that bad
Arrive at school 8:50
Sometimes we all need a late start to our day.
