The day shall not be up so soon as I,
To try the fair adventure of tomorrow.
She's really got me stumped on this one.
Every day for the past 5-6 days when we've woken up, Maeve has already been up and turned on all the lights in the house. When I ask her why, I get a bouquet of answers, which makes it hard to believe any single one. She had a bad dream, she had a good dream, she just woke up, she wanted to play, she was cold, she was hot, etc.
So my next move is to push back bedtime, and maybe that will work. We already have lights on a timer that come on when she's allowed to get up, and she's getting 10 hours of sleep at night and 2 in the afternoon, and 12 is about right for her age. I think it's possible her sleep patterns early in the morning are just easily disrupted, that she's easily awakened during the cycle that happens early in the morning. But I'm over it.
I would like to solve it, though. Soon.
