Please help! My 5 year old is such a grouch in the morning that I hate waking up everyday and it ruins my day! 99% of the time it is about clothes. So in attempt to avoid a disaster, I go into her closet with her at night and have her help me pick out her outfit for the next day. I have tried earlier bedtimes. Nothing works. Every morning she wakes us crying hysterically. The shoes will hurt her feet,. she does not like the shorts/pants, the brush hurts her hair so she cries hysterically. I'm so exasperated I am starting to just let her cry and not care. She even asked this morning if I would stop being mean! (I told her to stop being a brat) (I am definitely not a ray of sunshine in the morning, but this makes it worse!) I am usually a good Mom but patience is not one of my best qualities. Any one else have these "early morning problems?" What can I do!?
