If You Were A Dormilón You’ll Recognize All These Ways Our Moms Woke Us Up For School

LA schools are working on starting their days later because more and more young people are not getting the sleep they need. I wish this had been the law when I was growing up, because getting out of bed was a struggle. I had a mom, who like most moms had no time or help, and definitely had no patience when it came to me wanting to sleep in.

You know how it starts, just like I do:

You somehow stayed up late watching TV with the brightness down and close captions on.

Because you know mami’s hearing is better than a fruit bat and she wasn’t having no late nights.

Then, at some point around 3am, you decide, “okay, I can probably go to bed now, I’ll get 5 hours, I’ll be fine.”

The alarm goes off, and if you blink once, you’re done.

But there’s one alarm that isn’t snoozed so easily.

1. “El cuco viene a despertarte…”

There’s nothing that will get you in or out of bed faster than an “El Cuco” threat. And you know mami has him on speed dial.

2. “Te bañas o te baño.”

3. “¿Quieres la chancla?”

4. Switching the lights on and off.

5. Shouting, clapping, screaming, singing, blasting the radio, shouting again.

6. Pulling you out of the bed by your feet.

7. Jumping on your bed.

But that doesn’t matter as long as you’re following mami’s rules at home, coño!
