Me: (pulling the covers back from the barely visible curly topped head) Time to wake up Ava.
Ava: (no response)
Me: Wake up honey.
Ava: (groaning) 5 more minutes....! (rolling over)
Me: Sweetie, you have to get up now and eat and get dressed, or you'll be late for school. You don't want to be tardy do you?
Ava: (thinking) Does it cost money to be tardy?
Me: No. But you get a tardy mark on your attendance record.
Ava: Well just one of those isn't so bad.
Me: If you get up you'll stop feeling so tired after you move around a little bit.
Ava: My tummy hurts. I think I need to rest it.
Me: (nice try sister) It's time to get up and eat breakfast.
Ava: (reluctantly getting up...walking to the kitchen...sitting at the bar....looking at her food...THROWING UP.)
Me: Ok then, let's get you back to bed after all.
