Where do you keep your marbles? Mine are in the freezer

Mini Red is notorious for being a pain to get up in the morning. The alarm doesn't work so I've had to get inventive.

I used to drop a cold wet washcloth on her face but she became immune to it. Then my friend's husband told me what his family did to get him out of bed. They kept marbles in the freezer. When he refused to get out of bed they put all the marbles in his bed. This works so well because they are freezing and follow wherever you move in the bed so your only choice is to get out of bed.

I have never had to go through with it with Mini Red because it scares her awake when I say I'm getting them.
