It all started with my mom, Sally, singing me awake every morning of my childhood. Then, when I was about 13 my friend Rob pointed out how special it was that she did that.

I love your mom! She sings us awake every time I sleep over!

Didn't every mom do that? I guess not. So, being that Susan and I consider our job to be no more complex than to make you smile in the morning, we've been borrowing the tune from Singing in the Rain every weekday morning for quite a while now. I guess it's sinking in, because recently, I took this call.
