Smoothie idea lasted one morning - she doesn't want smoothies anymore.
She's a fussy critter.
I think (unfortunately) we are concluding it is a combo of sometimes not getting enough sleep - but also, the mornings she is all happy and chatty in bed, then a monster as soon as we get her up....we think it's somewhat about control. She burns around yelling if things are different from when she went to bed, things have to be just so before she has her milk...it's like she can't stand getting up because she's suddenly not in control of anything or something (though she usually is).
Sleep is still giving us grief. We're having to put her to bed at 6pm (we are in summer months here - so it's light until 9pm, then light again in the morning at 5-ish) because she can't seem to sleep past 5am. We have good curtains, but can't shut her door (there is a huge window outside her door in the hallway) or she goes nuts.
I thought maybe she was starving hungry - but she rejects all food until breakfast (which we are trying to do a little earlier) - so it seems something else is going with her, as above.
Why so grumpy in the a.m. though - gah...it's awful.
