Show-tune torture

At long last, the fact that I've had show tunes stuck in my head most of my life has paid off. This morning when WCK refused to get out of bed for school, I decided to sing "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" from Oklahoma! until she complied. As you might recall, WCK hates my singing voice, so it went something like this:

ME: Oh, what a beautiful morning ...
WCK: STOP THAT!!!!
ME: Oh, what a beautiful day ..
WCK: STOP!! SINGING!!!
ME: I've got a beautiful feeeeee-liiing ...
WCK: YOU ARE BOTHERING ME!!!!

By the time I got to the part about the elephant's eye, she was up. Thank you, Rodgers and Hammerstein.

With my teenage boys I prefer the John Wayne saying.."Get up yer burning daylight" as i turn on the light switch.

Remember when Alma used to say that your kids love your voice? She was totally lying:)
