I think we’re the only parents in all the land who don’t loathe the time change. This spring forward we not only embraced the time change- we celebrated it. lex wakes up at the awfully early hour of 5am. We’ve been early birds getting all those good worms ever since she toddler beded it up- long gone are our days of her sleeping in until 7 or 7:30. Clearly no one in the world should be up and moving at 5am- so we feebly attempt to pull her into bed with us and pray she’ll lay there until a much more reasonable hour. . .we’ve tried pushing her bedtime back. we’ve tried waking her up early from her monster-naps. and yet, every morning is the same game.
“mommy. . . i know its 5am. and your tired and probably want to keep sleeping. but i want to cuddle. and chat about life and mermaids and bounce houses and that one time i hit my head at the sea otter exhibit at the aquarium. so WAKE UP MOMMY.”
and yes. she talks that much. all the time. i kid you not, this babe doesn’t stop talking. . . ever.
and yes. daddy often times gets out of these ridiculous morning wake-ups. but at 5am no one but mommy will do.
