I totally understand cranky kids who don’t want to get up in the mornings, I used to be one. Sometimes I feel like I still am one, except for you know, the not young part. Well, that, and my mom doesn’t wake me up every morning anymore. My children hold that job now. Anyway, I’m a cranky mom who doesn’t want to get up in the morning either. And I can definitely tell you that when I’m in my “good heavens I hate 6 am mode,” I don’t want to cook breakfast for crabby kids or deal with a mess in the kitchen.
