Good morning, Sunshine!

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Do you want a smile? Go here. It will only take a minute.

It reminded me of how, when I was a kid, my mom would wake me up by singing the theme song off of some old T.V. show that would drive me completely crazy. "Good morning, sunshine! Why did you wake so soon? You've chased the moon and stars away and shined away the moon!"

I'm not a morning person, and I wake up slowly, especially if awoken by a person, not an alarm clock. Trust me, for the sake of our relationship, just let the clock get me up. Or the sun. But not singing about the sun.

  1. By the way.... it's "good morning MERRY sunshine, how did you wake so soon, you chased the LITTLE stars away, and shined away the moon!!" And if it DID drive you least it got you out of bed!!

  2. Oh man, my mom sang that song to me, too. She had a coupla them. And always they were song with GREAT joy and enthusiasm. I KNOW she loved doing it.

    Thanks, T. :)

  3. So many good posts here lately! Glad your summer sounds like it's going good!! New hair is CUTE!

  4. Mom - How could I have forgotten that?!

    Colleen - What is it with these women?

    My kids don't hear me waking them up with annoyingly-cheerful songs.

    'Course, that could be 'cause they are usually up before I am. And they haven't had to start waking up early every day for school yet. I can just see myself in a few year's time: "Good morning, Merry Sunshine, how did you wake so soon?..."

    Beth - Thanks! And yes, it's been enjoyable so far! And Thanks! Hugs, friend!
