Have you seen those investigative news shows where they prove that children do, in fact, sleep like the dead? Generally they show a little “test” where a family’s smoke detectors go off in the night, and the parents are running around with their hands over their ears, begging for mercy from the *BLAAAAAAAAAAAAP* of the alarms, and then they show the children sleeping peacefully, unbothered, completely not registering that even the neighbors have been woken up by the shrieking alarm.
It was thanks to such research that things like the KidSmart Vocal Detector was developed, because a child will wake up to a familiar voice even if a siren doesn’t rouse them. (What, that seems weird? Kids will eat paste; don’t try to use logic, here.) If you’ve been needing new smoke detectors, anyway, that’s a great price on one or an astounding deal on a package of eight (I even added the current 8% off coupon into the links there, for you) on ’em.
I just wonder what sort of message you could record that would get the kid up without scaring him half to death. (Perhaps my usual morning greeting: “Rise and shine, Captain Bedhead!”)
