I sing to my son to wake him up in the morning.
“Wake up for me Mylen… It’s time to go to school.”
It’s to the tune of Mary J. Blige’s hook in the song “Come Close” by Common. He waits for the song before he deigns to get out of bed. Even though the light is on, the blinds are open, and I’ve gently tickled his body to rouse him from rest, he waits for the song.
