The first couple of months were hard- she was exhausted when she got home. We just tried to keep her Moving and awake till 6:00 -6:30, then she would sleep through the night. The evenings are much harder than the mornings for us. Sheโ€™s adjusted now and makes it easily til 7ish. Sorry- no great advice- we just would do things she finds fun to keep her awake. Playground, bike rides, some cartoons, playing board games etc...

Our mornings are so stressful, too. Iโ€™m going to try breakfast smoothies this week to see if it helps. She just wonโ€™t eat, but then gets in trouble for being cranky at school.

Prepping the night before, starting the early wake up a few days before school to help get used to the new routine and leaving enough time for a gentle wake up. My grandmother used to wake us up by quietly singing โ€œGood morning to you. Good morning to you. Good morning *insert their name*. Mommy and Daddy love you.โ€ Sung to the tune of happy birthday. Not sure why but it always put a smile on my face as a child and it does so for my dragon baby in the morning ๐Ÿ™‚

Being prepared the night before has really helped our 9 yr old over the years. She picks out her clothes for the next day, helps pack her lunch, and set up her backpack all the night before. I get her up 30 mins before the other 3 and she enjoys a cup of hot tea while I drink my coffee. We use this as our mom n me time. Than she gets to help with breakfast and getting everyone else up for the day. It makes her feel like she has an important job to contribute to the family. Now I can't get her to sleep in with the rest of us on the weekends.๐Ÿ˜‚

I always made sure I was well prepared the night before. Lunches made, bags packed, clothes out and ready to go. Slowly waking my son up earlier and earlier eventually worked also. I even went as far as making breakfast the night before and having it in the fridge. Like over night oats or something :)
