Getting dressed in the morning

off to school
Originally uploaded by Liz Henry.

We used to have difficulties getting ready in the morning, but then Rook began racing with Moomin to see who could get dressed fastest. The joke is that Rook acts double-fakey-sneaky, and tells him to relax and play and read some comic books. “Oh Moomin! Don’t get dressed! I’m sure it’s not time for school yet! You can just daydream for a long time, all you want! I’m not getting ready yet!” All in an obvious lying voice.

Moomin has now caught on that not all teasing is bad. Every morning he lights up and yells, “Aha! You’re trying to trick me! ” while he slams on his clothes, boasting and taunting…

It’s much much nicer than coming in the room every 5 minutes to yell “Put that comic book down!”

Thanks Rook, for your awesome mad parenting skillz!

    That is a great idea! I'm going to tell RW about it as she's the one who has to struggle every morning and drag our girl through the routine. Though we're all such non-morning people that it might just backfire with MG taking her up on her offer and trundling back to bed.

    This is very good trick to make the girl dress quickly in the morning. Most the children are very lazy during morning time to get dress and go to school. I would like to use some of your post line in my… blogs article which I want to share it in essay blog where my users also can read and use this trick on their children.

    and enjoy attractive company by their side. Money isn’t an issue,
    thus they are generous when it comes to supporting a Sugar daddy.
