Getting up in the morning-Why is it so difficult?
I have been having this problem with Aviva. Well, it does not help she is fighting to go to sleep every night. Do you want to know why? According to Aviva, there are monsters and ghosts in her room. But of course I explained to her when she is at camp I sprayed tons of the Go Away Monsters and Ghosts Spray so they were all gone. Not sure if that went over very well. I think she is doing it to be able to sleep in our room. She finally started sleeping in her room about 7 weeks ago. It was going so well and all of a sudden she claims she misses me and needs to be with me. And she comes in our room but do you think she goes to wake Daddy up and asks him if she can come into our bed. If you said NO, you are correct. She feels it is necessary to wake me up. But when I say NO to her, for some reason she takes that as a yes and climbs into bed with us. And of course she hogs my whole side, so picture me hanging on for dear life.
So this morning, time to get Aviva up and never guess where she is, yup my bed. And she is not getting up so I have try everything. Well, Aviva if you do not get up, I am wearing your clothes and going to camp and you can stay home and write my paper. No movement yet, wait saw something move, her breathing. Ok then, no Burger KIng or McDonalds tomorrow (I take her on Fridays). OK I see a little movement. She is thinking Mommy you cannot be serious I need my fast food fix. Finally, have to go to the last resort, out comes the tickle finger. Guess what? It worked very well and did get some good laughs. And finally after 8 minutes she is up and ready to face this world!
Now if there was an easy solution for getting her to stay in her bed and being easy to get up in the morning (of course she is up bright and early on the weekends) PLEASE send them my way. I can really use them.
