Early Riser?

The old adage goes: “Early to sleep, early to rise. Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” My dad was one of those early risers, and as he grew older the earlier he went to bed, and the earlier he woke up than the rest of us. He was like an alarm clock – if we asked him to wake us up at 4 am, by 3:30 he would be waking us up. It really made me wonder if he had an internal clock that sets off as soon as his brain tells it to. And how I wish I could do the same. Unfortunately, I tend to sleep late and likewise, wake up late.
In our parent-teacher consultation session, Aya’s sensei at the daycare actually recommended to me that I put Aya to bed as early as 9 am, and wake her up at 6:30 am. That way, she will have a full night’s sleep, have enough appetite for lunch, etc — in other words, regulate her daily cycle. Unfortunately, for her to wake up at 6:30 means that I have to be awake at that time as well. Good grief. The earliest I can wake up these days is 7 am, and even then you can find me begging for at least 15 minutes to languish in bed before I actually get up. So instead of getting to the daycare on time, we always find ourselves arriving half an hour later than most of them. It’s embarrassing, I know. But unlike the Japanese we take our showers in the morning, and that consumes time. Di baleng late basta mabango. :)
