My boys for several months have been getting up way too early and they run right into my bedroom and make sure that I am up. One brother was waking up the other one and then we were all wide awake and usually around 6:30 and sometimes 6:00!
I had gotten this cool clock a couple of years ago and love it! This was great to train my oldest to stay in bed and worked well until little brother got big enough to get out of bed and our routine suddenly changed. Since we have moved and a little before that I wasn’t being strict about them staying in their bed until a certain time and they kept getting up earlier and earlier.
Today was the second morning I told them that they had to stay in bed until the light turned green! they have done great the last two days and I hope it continues. Yesterday they slept until right before it turned green and this morning they were awake about 15-20 minutes before it turned green and they stayed in bed. It really helps me to not be woke up so quickly and know that I can slowly get out of bed right before they get up.
This clock as been worth every penny to us! the Teach my time talking clock is wonderful and you can find it at Amazon.com. It lights up when it is time to wake up and stays green for an hour. It lights up a little bit when it is time for bed . It tells you the time when you push the foot and it can also be used like a regular alarm clock.
Hoping that our good trend of staying in bed continues! I am sure it won’t take long for our routine to change again it always does as they get older. One day they will just be able to get up and get breakfast and let mommie sleep. I can’t wait for that day, lol.
What do you do in the mornings? let them get up or do you have rules in the morning?
