So I posted a month or so about my 3 year old waking before dawn at like 4-5 in the blessed morning. So I purchased one of those toddler alarms. It was a cute little owl. You can push it's belly and it glows yellow and tells you to go to back sleep. At the wake up time it glows green and if you push its belly, it tells you it is time to wake.
Well..............At first DS kept waking and pretending to ignore owl. THEN next several nights, he proceeded to wake and bring owl only to tell me owl was broken & wrong and it was morning. THEN he tired to break and reset owl himself. THEN several nights, he would hit owl and tantrum at owl because owl would not tell him it was morning. AND NOW LAST, he has told me owl has flown away. I found him the first couple of times (bathtub, under the bed). but he finally has hidden owl someplace unusual (perhaps thrown owl away); I cannot find owl ANYWHERE. And yes, he still wakes at any time he desires. UGH!
I just want more sleep.
