Yesterday I copied an e-mail I had received: How to Awaken a Teenager. Unfortunately the e-mail did not have the author's name, so I have no idea who to credit with the writing.
YS does a pretty good job waking up by himself, especially when Pepper is an eager alarm clock. Here is a sample of what happens in our house in the morning:Obviously this is a reenactment: YS does not sleep on the floor. After I tell Pepper "Tell your boy to get up", she goes into alarm clock mode, jumps on his bed, and starts waking him up, with me egging her on to not only get her boy up, but for her to "do your job". All with a wagging tail. Oh, to be that happy in the morning.
