I don’t know about you, but dealing with the early sun and late sun is messing with our toddler’s sleep schedule! We went to Walmart and bought some awesome blackout curtains, made specifically for kids. They are magenta so they go with the room and they block out all the rays in the summer, along with the heat and sound of the neighborhood kids playing in the cul-de-sac during nap time! At only $12 a piece they are totally worth it! We are also going to try this wonderful clock product (link above). I hadn’t thought about it, but kids really judge the time of day on the sun. So our little miss was staying up later and getting up earlier because she didn’t know any better! Well, we will fix that! Instead, she can look at her “alarm” clock and see whether Mister sheep is still sleeping or whether he is awake before she determines it is time to get up! How neat is that!
