Clocky Winner!!!!

I have to say that the panel of judges (Beloved, Sleepy Miss C, and myself) enjoyed reading the entries for the Clocky contest. Personally, I was happy to note that I am not the only parent who has trouble getting a kid out of bed.

But without further ado, the winner of the Clocky Alarm Clock from Spoon Sisters is...

Sharon Wren

Here is her entry for your reading pleasure:

Trying to get my 2 boys (6 and 8) out of bed is a nightmare. Like you, DH can get ‘em up easily, but I’m the one who’s home in the morning. I try rubbing their backs, talking nicely, talking louder, threatening lives and other sorts of general chaos. But some days the only thing that gets ‘em moving is when I sing. And I ain’t no Julie Andrews. How bad am I? I was once asked to stop singing in a karaoke bar full of drunks. So when the boys don’t move, I tell ‘em “don’t make me sing!!!’ And if that doesn’t work, I start singing “The Rainbow Connection” from the Muppet Movie at the top of my lungs. It’s not pretty. Halfway across the country Simon Cowell is hiding under his bed w/ his hands over his ears.

But they do get up. BTW, should this entry win and should you wish to torture your listeners (readers), I could record a few minutes of the experience.

So readers, do we want to 'hear' Sharon? Or shall we take warning from those drunks in the karaoke bar? Let's vote! Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

Sharon, congrats honey! I hope Clocky gets those boys rollin' outta bed each and every morning! And stop back by and let us know how it works. We'd love to know!

Thank you! I'd like to thank the Academy, my manager, my agent, George Clooney for all the backrubs...whoops, wrong speech.

Seriously though, this is a cool thing to find out on a Monday. And I'll stick w/ my end of the bargain - if the readers want to hear me warble, I'll do it. But they've been warned!!!

Congrats, Sharon!

I don't know. I've learned, through the years, that one should always trust the opinions of drunk karaoke groups. =)

It can't be that bad...let us judge for ourselves
