My hubby and I are sleep-inners and we had three 'crack of dawn'-ers.
Basically, no way to get them to sleep in, BUT;
a) quiet activities until 7am. (Box of books, colouring gear etc for early morning quietness)
b) Get as many tupperware bowls as you have kids. The night before, cereal gets put in the bowl and sealed. In the morning the oldest can pour the milk over the cereal and voila - kids fed with no effort. This usually happens around 7. Of course we're pretty much awake by then (small tent lol) but they sit outside under the tarp with their cereal and books etc.
c) At 8am mum and dad are human and may be approached for something less than blood and/or mayhem reasons.
If a man speaks in the middle of the forest and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?
