I have never been a morning person. Since Princess A came along I have tried my best to adjust to waking up early but I just can’t seem to do it. No matter how much sleep I get I still wake up cranky and out of it. So I put on huge sunglasses and my leopard coat so I look somewhat glam. Then I put my hair in a braid and try to pull of the “I’m so glam I don’t have time to do my hair look”. Then we walk Freckles and take him to the bathroom. This takes a long time because he has to pee on everything. Once we get back to our building I have Princess A walk to the elevator and when we get to our floor I have her walk to our apartment. It doesn’t sound like a long walk but for her it is a marathon. I do this so she is tired and ready for a morning nap. People say she is old enough for only one nap a day but what about me? I NEED 2 NAPS A DAY!
Once she is sleeping I go back to bed. Right before she wakes up I am in a good enough mood to brush my teeth and get ready for the day. This is my method for dealing with my daughter waking up early. What do my fellow morning haters do to deal with an early bird baby?
