Why is it that when the kids go to bed late they still get up at the same time BUT when the go to bed early they wake up earlier than normal? It's just not fair! Ava is in the "I don't want to nap but still need a nap most days" stage, which can be very aggravating. Yesterday she did not nap, so she fell asleep before 7:00 p.m. (she usually goes to sleep around 9:30 or 10 - don't ask and don't lecture. we've tried earlier bedtimes with her and it has never worked) Generally she goes to bed at 9:30 or 10 and gets up around 7:30 or 8. She's just never needed that much sleep. BUT on the occasional evenings when she goes to sleep at 11 or so she STILL is up between 7:30 or 8. This morning - 5:15 a.m. Wandering the house. Getting dressed. Changing clothes. Lecturing me about the 1/2 eaten banana that was left on the kitchen table overnight. Asking to watch a show. Asking if she can wear socks. Asking if she can brush her teeth. Do whatever you want JUST LET ME SLEEP! :)
