early birds

I have a very busy and talkative five year old. When he starts talking he rarely stops, well, except to breath. He gets up early in the morning and gets fired up right away. I am not a morning person, never has been probably never will be so when he does his thing very early in the morning (I am talking 5, 6 AM here) it messes up my head. Sometimes I wish I have Bose headphones to help me get my equilibrium first before I deal with him and his sister who, when she gets riled up, team up with her brother on who can make the most noise. They look at me like I am a freak when I don't keep up with them. Maybe I am. I don't know a lot of people like me so maybe I am odd after all, lol. And it is very ironic that I don't like getting up early in the mornings but both of my kids do. Very early by most people's standard since they are wide awake by five. I thought about letting them sleep late and I did that a couple nights only to discover it did not change their waking up time. I do not want them to not have enough sleep so I stopped that. Better me being cranky than my kids not having enough sleep so I guess I better shut up and bear it. Nothing much I can do until they start school and do not want to get up early in the mornings. I will get my revenge then :)
