Alarm Clock Dyslexia

So we had our first night in the new house. We didn’t get much unpacking done, but I did get beds set up and alarm clocks set and school clothes set out. We were READY for whatever the morning would bring.

Our very first morning, I wake up and realize I don’t hear 10-year old daughter getting ready for school. Remember – this is the child who needs 2 hours in the morning to get ready – and I never ask why. I just stay out of her way and let her do whatever it is she feels she needs to do. It’s just easier that way.

Anywho, it’s only 30 minutes before the bus comes, so this is very unusual. I’d better go investigate….

I head down the stairs and find her sound asleep, snug as a bug in her bed in her new bedroom. Snoring away – not a care in the world.

In my rush to get things done last night, I had set her alarm for 5:30 PM instead of 5:30 AM.


She was really grumpy when I woke her up. I can’t imagine why.

So anyone else out there ever get alarm clock dyslexia? Surely, I can’t be the only one. I’m not, am I?

You're not. I tend to set the alarm and then double check it for this very reason. AM, PM. Not that much difference. Except it totally is.

I always make my husband set it. Then if he messes up the am/pm thing I can pretend I would certainly never do that! ha! Happy New House!

Nope, I've done it! As a Flight Attendant I now make sure I have two alarms. Of course there was the time in Puerto Rico that my friend and I were an hour early for pick up for our flight. Dang place doesn't do Day Light Savings. What a beating!

Been there, done that. Not a good thing--ever!
