They are 3 and 4. They are such light sleepers that if one wakes, the other does too. Often they wake up to use the bathroom and then they're just up for the day. We came over from the Pacific time over here to Eastern, but they still get up at this time regardless of when they go to bed. I just want to wake up one day with the sun shiniing through the window... not several hours of darkness left to go.
They're outside a LOT during the day so they get plenty of sunlight. If DD (3) doesn't fall asleep by 5, she will be up until midnight and still get up at 5 am. For weeks at a time, if need be. She just doesn't wake later.
In the morning I simply cannot keep both of them quiet and/or stay in bed. If I get one to be quiet the other will wake up. They just don't.listen. if I tell them we have to lay there until it's light out. It's stupid cos now we'd be lying in bed for like four hours. If the time change comes it'll be like 2 am when they wake up. I'd reverse cycle but they go to preschool during the day so I can't do that. I am at my wits' end. They don't get that we sleep when it's dark and wake up when it's light. They just don't get it. Theyr'e 3 and 4. Shouldn't they get it by now?
