My son, the one who is impossible to wake in the mornings, wants to get up every morning at 5:00 so he can bike to the pool, swim for an hour, then bike to school.
I could not believe that he seriously considered doing this. I figured, the idea would fade as the beginning of school approached.
Tomorrow is his first day of school.
I figured wrong.
He wants to stick with his plan.
So, today, I finally took his bike in to be fixed (he needed a new brake cable) and bought him lights so that he can ride safely in the early morning. when it is still dark.
Anyone want to place bets on whether he gets up with his alarm tomorrow???
(I know, I'm terrible, I should have more faith in my son! But, seriously, FIVE O'CLOCK in the MORNING!?!?!? By choice????)
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
