    Default Early riser vent

    It's 7am and I'm already completely exhausted, grumpy and over it! Ds1 (6yr old) has always been an early riser, average is 5, but ranges from 4.15 (this morning) to maybe 5.30 at the latest. He's pretty good at being quiet for the first hr, but I still hear him get up and mostly can't go back to sleep myself. We've tried everything!!! Whole house is up by 5.30, makes for a long morning. No point to sharing, just feeling cranky and hard done by :-(

    I feel your pain, my boys are the same. About a month ago I caught them trying to start their day at 3:20!
    And they don't understand or just think I'm an old fuddy duddy when I say people just don't get up that early!
    I can tell you it will be a struggle when daylight savings starts next week!

    Daylight saving will make it easier as the clocks go forward!

    The lighter mornings have meant my DS has started waking at 5.20am without fail. Not impressed. Also means he is awake when we are trying to get ready for work which is not ideal either. He used to sleep until 6.30.

    It's the same here in our house. Ds1 (5) has not slept past 5am since birth!!! Usually he gets up an entertains himself with his DVD player or something till I get up but some mornings like today he will come into my room every 2 minutes to ask for something. He's been up since 4:30 today. Ds2 (2) on the other hand will easily sleep till 7-8am

    Early risers here too! Today, we had breakfast 3 hours ago, and have already been to the beach for an early dip! 5am has become totally acceptable in our house... But it means I have to go to sleep around 830pm otherwise I can't maintain it lol.
