School’s been in session for a few weeks now, long enough for the newness to wear off and the routine to settle in. Chances are, that means that there’s at least one slug-a-bed in the house who has more than a little trouble getting up for school.
If you, like us, have tried just about everything (ever tried “I’m not leaving this room until you have both feet on the floor?” Turns out some kids can sleep very comfortably that way), here’s one more idea that just might bring some peace to your morning.
An alarm clock.
Not just any old alarm clock, mind you. We have found a couple that are pretty darn hard to ignore. Clocky®, for example. This little guy’s alarm goes off at the appointed time and he holds still long enough to give the sleeper a chance to shut him off. If that doesn’t happen, though, he will leap off the dresser (no joke) and roll around the floor, alarm and all. The groggy one must then get out of bed and catch the darn thing. By then, everyone’s awake.
The target alarm is similar, in that it requires some clear-headed interaction. In this case, that means hitting the target with the included laser gun. Ready, aim, wake up.
Those options take care of the stubborn sleepers, and we have some delightful options for everyone else. Here at Oopsy daisy, we offer fine art canvas clocks, hand-stretched canvas on a wood frame, just like our canvas wall art. Ready Robots by Winborg Sisters is bright and fun, and there’s just something about the word “ready” in the name that reassures us that everyone will be up and at ’em in plenty of time.
Paper Flowers by Libby Ellis is sweet and colorful, making it fun to watch time fly.
Speaking of flying, check out this Koo Koo Bluebird clock, also by WInborg Sisters. We’ve got versions in several different colors, and this one always makes us smile. There’s just something so intriguing about it– a painting of a cuckoo clock that actually works! So clever.
We’ve done all we can here to help you in the mornings. Now it’s up to you. Good luck, and may tomorrow morning’s routine be a smooth one.
