Ricki was coming up the stairs after music last week VERY slowly. VERY.It was already 8:30 PM, and I guess it had been a long day.The teen who teaches her was getting a bit exasperated. I called down the stairwell “Ricki, supper is ready!” She instantly reacted, charging quickly up all flights as the teacher rolled with laughter.
“Heaven’s sake, how do you think I get her out of bed in the morning?”, I added…..
Yes, if all else fails, a reminder that she won’t have time for breakfast if she doesn’t get moving will usually do the trick. (But reminding her of something nice schueduled for that day is both nicer and healthier.)
