It's my son that I am concerned about really - I'm actively trying to shift his schedule a little at a time. If left to his own devices he will stay up until 2am, and sleep until 1pm. I've been nudging him out of bed much earlier these days, and most nights not letting him stay up so late. Tho if he's really into a book then unless i hide the book he'll just read after I go to bed
I understand that tho - I'm a book worm too, so I do allow that at times. I'm just trying to get him up a little earlier, and into bed a little earlier too. We have a big family tho, and he really enjoys having time with me in the evening once everyone has gone to bed, so I've been going with that for a while now. I'm gentle about how I wake him tho - and just sit there for 5-10 minutes and stroke his hair and say silly things to him until he can't help but laugh - or I steal his blankets lol - but I'm careful to not turn it into a big power struggle. Sometimes his little sister has success waking him up too - pries his eyelids open
She's cute - it's hard to get annoyed by her
I'd have to buy peach leaves - we're too cold a climate for peaches. Do they taste nice? My kids are getting more open to trying the teas I make them, but definitely won't go for it if it's "yucky"
