Turns out, MAM is past the age of being a chipper, early riser. If I had known the days would be fleeting, I would have enjoyed those early wake up calls more. Because now?? It’s how I imagine wrestling a teenager out of bed will be in 10 years.
The darkness in the evening helps a little bit, but wow, mornings are tough these days for her.
Bedtime is getting earlier, and I’m waking her up at a consistent time, but she is fighting it every step of the way. *IF* I could let her stay up til 10 and sleep until 9 every day I would (and did this summer), but I can’t.
School starts at 8:30, and in one short month I’ll be back to work and we’ll be having to leave the house at 7:30, her current wake up time!!
I am soliciting any and all advice on the subject–I’m beginning to dread mornings now too!
