When I got up at 5:40 this morning, Daughter was in the bathroom. Her alarm had not yet gone off. I realized that she never gets up with the alarm clock. She either ignores it, or is up before it. I'm thinking that her Oppositional Defiant Disorder is such that she won't listen to the alarm any more than she listens to me.
She is very happy this morning, and quite proud of herself. As promised, I will take her out to eat after church today. Her life is going to be challenging if she continues to be unable to get up with the alarm. For today, though, I will be grateful that she is up and ready to go before me.
