Waking up a child in the morning for school is no fun. Every morning, I will have to CARRY YX to the toilet. Sometimes, he will cry, sometimes he will just mumble "I'm tired, I want to sleep" and sometimes, he is ok. Those ok moments will only happen 1 in every 10 times!
Previously, I served him milk before asking him to brush his teeth. It will be easier to wake him up this way. But now, it is the other way round.
I make sure he MUST brush his teeth first before taking his milk because he will VOMIT every time he brushes his teeth after milk.
If he brushes his teeth before taking milk, he is fine.
Most of the morning, he will greet me with his sour sleepy face. And I will be rushing and shouting like mad asking him to be FAST FAST FAST.
At night, I will off the lights at 8.30pm (the latest) but he will only sleep at around 9.30pm. He will sing and talk despite my numerous warnings.
Kids. When it is time to sleep, they refuse to sleep. When it is time to wake up, they want more sleep.
And I noticed that his 'energizer' battery could last longer now.........no nap in the afternoon, he is still so active !!! How to make him tired ?
