DD is 3 and it has been taking me almost 30 minutes every morning to get her out of bed. I have to be at work at 7 so letting her wake on her own is not an option.
If I try to force her too fast, she winds up in a meltdown which puts us even later.
I really don't want to wake her any earlier than I have to but I gotta get her up and out of the house by 615A. I turn on the hallway light so her room lights up, I have a radio on in the bathroom, I go rouse her 4-5 times...

I'm not sure what time you get her out of bed, but start waking her up 10-20 minutes before. Go in her room, and tell her it is almost time to get up. Make sure she answers you and knows that she will have to get up soon. Then put some of her favorite music on. It's like having a party every morning. Let her pick out her own clothes, my kids love the responsibility of choosing their own clothes. They might pic out something crazy, but it's what makes them happy. Good luck!!!

What time is she going to bed at night? Maybe putting her to bed a little earlier will help her get enough sleep to get up in the morning.
