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...
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!
