Ways to Trick your Baby:

Problem:  Your baby likes to get up with the sun!  She’s happy to start a new day as soon as possible.  She didn’t stay up all night writing blogs and cleaning, no!  She’s well rested and ready to go at the crack of dawn.  But you may not be.  She’s also hungry.  It’s been a long ten hours, and she’s ready for breakfast.

At least she’s hard at work!

Solution:  Keep your vacuum cleaner handy and available at all times.
