My oldest daughter has her very own alarm clock.
We went out and bought an analog clock of her very own. She is now responsible for waking up and getting going on her own.
Most brilliant parenting strategies go terribly awry. Generally causing the mom (me) more heartburn than progress. That has been my experience.
Last night I made sure that I went to bed earlier than usual. Then I lay in wait for the impending brrrring! at 6:35am. Well, actually, I slept great. It is a skill I am most proud of. I am a good sleeper.
Then, morning came. It all went off like clockwork. Pardon the pun.
Except that Audrey woke up at 5am because she was afraid the alarm would startle her.
In the big scheme of things, not such a bad start to a new habit.
The good news is I slept in. ah! Audrey made breakfast, got dressed and woke her sister up.
She is so proud of herself. And I am too.
Another great Monday!
Wishing you an incredible week.
