    Comes in for a hug and either sleeps a little bit with us or plays in the bed and then goes out to the loungeroom and turns on ABC2 to watch until I come out to make breakfast.
    He will take himself to the toilet if he needs to and lately he's been coming back and forwards to get crackers (I've been keeping saladas next to the bed to help nausea in the mornings).
    If he wants me up he's more persistent but he's been saying lately "mummy, you rest and I watch tv and you come out when you feel better" then he'll give me a hug. What more can you ask from a 2 yr old?!

    If your DD isn't a morning person, then can i ask what time she goes to bed?
    She turned 3 in April and goes to bed at 7-7.30ish and gets up about 7.30-8am BUT she has a lot of nightmares and still wakes up 1-3 times most nights. We used to let her come into bed with us when she woke up but then she just sleeps like an octopus and tries to bury herself so close to us that she physically hurts us and then no one gets sleep. She has never been a good sleeper kept hoping she would grow out of it.
    As for food she eats everything we eat but mornings it's just that she wants to express her frustration so complains about everything.

    DD2 is exactly the same. It was such a shock after DD1 who was and still is always happy in the morning. We have some awful mornings, and then around 9 she becomes this other person and is happy. She was also a terrible sleeper. She's 3 and 4 months and is finally getting better. Hopefully your DD will get there too it's very draining.

    He then continues to pull the quilt off me, throw my dressing gown in my face while yelling "waky waky mummy!!!! Make cuppa tea!!!"


    This morning I had one of the weirder wake up calls. I made a sock puppet for him last week. He's been mad about it.
    So this morning he walks into my room and has his cookie monster slippers on his hands. He shoves one in my face and goes "nom nom nom ggggrrrrrrr nom nom nom"


    Lol my DS also makes rooster calls he runs around the house cockadoodle do as loud as he possibly can get up mum get up at 5 am. Not impressed. His reasoning the sun is up we should be too :$. My brother stayed the night and woke up to DS pulling his eyelids open yelling wake up wake up followed by rooster sound. Urgh he's too much of a morning person DD Would norm play in her cot will be interesting to see what she does in morning now being in toddler bed

    My dD1 (3years) also isn't a morning person.

    Rarely, she'll wake up beautifully & dh or I will help her take her nappy off and get dressed.

    Sometimes she'll wake up happy enough and play on her bed until she starts calling/whinging out for "mum-my" to come help & cracks it if daddy shows up.

    Mostly she'll wake up cranky crying out for me and will cry regardless of who tries to help her.

    She goes to bed at 7pm and wakes between 6-7am. She eats a pretty good dinner most nights.

    DD2 wakes happy and sits in her cot chatting to herself until she wants her BF.

    My 3 year old DD will come into our bed and turn on the cartoons. We usually get another half hour or so while she watches telly. She doesn't bother us until she is hungry then I get "let's go downstairs and have breakfast Mum"...Dad usually gets another half hour after we get up.

    Plays with his Lego, sometimes for 2 hours while I try to snooze (all the while keeping an ear on him). Either that or he puts a Lego dvd on :-)

    Well usually they would come in and wake me up but this morning they decided to do things a little different and instead went into the lounge room and ate the packet of chocolate bikkies i left on the couch last night. was so lovely to wake up to a chocolate covered house and children.
