IF YOU struggle to wake your kids up for school, spare a thought for the mum who has 22 to contend with.
Sue Radford is mum to Britain’s biggest family and she’s revealed her tip for getting everyone out of bed in the morning – which is actually genius.
The Radfords have nine kids at school, with four of them having already returned to primary school last week.
And Sue showed how she got Oscar, 10, out the door on time – by sending his two youngest sisters in.
In a clip on her Instagram page, Sue says: “everyone needs a Heidie to wake them up”, showing her 18-month-old rousing her brother.
She’s soon joined by Bonnie, three, who’s carrying a stack of clothes.
If your younger kids wake at the crack of dawn, you might want to copy Sue’s technique.
In the sweet clip, Sue asks Heidie: “Are you gonna wake Oscar? C’mon Oscar”.
Her youngest then yells: “Get up!” pulling her older brother’s duvet off him, while he yawns in bed.
Visibly laughing, Sue says: “Wake up, it’s school. Give him kisses, say morning Oscar”.
Heidie then climbs into her brother’s bed, where she’s soon joined by Bonnie, saying: “I can get in! Heidie, what are you doing in there?”
Sue asks: “Are you getting in? We’re getting up”.
But it does the job. In less than 60 seconds, Oscar is climbing out of bed after having his snooze interrupted by his sisters.
Her fellow parents loved the tip, commenting on Instagram: “Amazing”, “Love this”, “So cute!!” and “Heidie is so funny”.
Sue and husband Noel certainly have a full house.
Their kids Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 13, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, 18 months, all live at home.
Millie’s daughter Ophelia, who turns one next week, also lives with them.
