This Baby Definitely Isn't a Morning Person

Who can blame this toddler for not feeling like getting out of bed in the morning?

Every family has one: a member who is so not a morning person. In our house, it's my 6-year-old daughter, who is guaranteed to not feel like getting up, and to make sure we all know how very against sunshine and saying goodbye to her bed she truly is. Just picture a mini-Joe Pesci with blonde hair and super-cute freckles, and you'll get the picture.

So I had to laugh at a new viral video of a Texas sleep-loving toddler who, like my daughter, is anti-mornings, and isn't afraid to show it. In the clip, we see his mom comes into his room and innocently say, "Good morning." To which her son angrily tells her, "Quiet!"

As she films his reaction to the "rude" awakening, the tot keeps yelling from the comfort of his crib, "Quiet!" Oh man, he's mad!

Luckily, it seems his mom is used to her son not being a morning person, as she takes it all in stride.

From one mom of a kiddo who hates mornings to another, I hate to tell her that his attitude likely won't change. My daughter has always been cranky in the A.M., until she eats breakfast, and then, as if by magic, the little girl I know and love emerges. Until the next morning when I wake her up, and her alter-ego rears its crabby head.

I've learned to live with it, and not let that she isn't a morning person get to me, or take away from my enjoyment of the mornings. Thankfully, there's coffee!
