I started setting an alarm clock for my 1st grader and it was working like a charm. If we set out her clothes the night before she would wake to the music, put her clothes on and come down for breakfast. Could I ask for more at 7:15 AM?
Before the alarm clock it was about 5 minutes of me rubbing her back and talking to her to try to get her to wake up, and not be a total grump. She‘s just not a morning person. I’m sure she’ll do great in college when she wants to stay up until 2 AM. Something for me to look forward to. (UGH!)
So I was all ready to write about how I love the alarm clock and this week she’s slept right through it. I look at the clock and it’s already 7:30 and when I check on her she’s sound asleep, music playing. Now what? I’m going to turn the music up, but I don’t want to wake the 2 year old sleeping in the next room.
Suggestions? Have you figured out the perfect way to wake up the night-owl child without the bad morning attitude?
