How do you prefer to be awakened in the morning?
In an ideal world I'd get to wake up on my own about 10am with coffee already brewing. In a realistic world, I take anything that doesn't involved screaming and crying from the baby and cat. Most days I wake up to my husband handing me a baby who is making the baby bird mouth looking for a boob (Aiden tends to wake up as DH is getting ready to leave).
When my body is ready, be it at 6am or 12pm. And to the smell of fresh coffee and bacon.
Do you watch The Office? Michael Scott likes to wake up to the smell of bacon. In one episode he burns his foot on his George Foreman grill b/c he put the grill in his bed, woke up, put bacon on it and went back to sleep so he could wake up to the smell of bacon.
Ideally I would wake up on my own as well. I've never had breakfast in bed but I imagine that would be wonderful. In reality, I get woken up by the morning rush of cars down our street. I think everyone is late for work everyday by the way they haul butt down our street. Thursday I was awoken at 6:45 by our new neighbor's motorcyle that he spent 5 minutes revving obnoxiously. I wanted to smack him.
I love waking up to hear Alison sneaking into our room....and she comes over to me ever so gently and pats me and says "mama". I just love it!! So sweet!!!
I don't like to be woken up.... lol. It's been soooooo long since I've woken up on my own. Lately, I'm woken up b/c of T's teething, J's nighttime accident or night terror or DH's work schedule....
LOVE that show! I remember that episode. Too funny!

Not quite sure. I'm always awake much earlier than necessary. I've been trying to think of a response to how I'd like to be woken up if I was actually sleeping later in the morning. :shrug:
I would love to wake up to a nice warm day with the windows open and only be able to hear a slight breeze. That would be wonderful. As it is, I wake up to my alarm on my phone, to the girls scream/shouting at each other in their cribs, or Isaiah walking in asking me if he can watch TV or play his DS. Sometimes, Craig finds it necessary to wake me as well. Really? I really hate being woken up. I am a real grump at first.
My favourite way to wake up is after a night of camping, with bird song and the sun rising and the knowledge of nothing scheduled for the day. My reality is my alarm which goes off half an hour before I have to get the kids up, so I have time for coffee before I have to "mother". Its my sanity...if I don't get my half hour, I am NOT a happy camper.
