I'm not remembering how many days into vacation the change happened, but shortly after our arrival, Anna began getting out of bed in the morning and coming into our room to wake us up. This may not seem out of the ordinary; however, at home Anna has NEVER done this. She reliably, every morning, has called out to us to let us know she is awake, asking if it's time to get up.
In her vacation room, the morning sun shone through the blinds (at home she has blackout drapes). So, in the condo, she'd wake up, and regardless of the time, declare that the light meant that it was time to wake up. I wondered if this new pattern would change upon our return home. It hasn't (I guess those blackout drapes don't black it out enough). Yesterday, and the day before for that matter, I heard her stirring and heard the gentle padding of feet down the hall, and then a soft little hand touched mine. I opened my eyes, and there she stood. "It's light out, now, Mommy!"
The good thing, for now, is that she's still staying in her room when she wakes in the night - when it's dark. I wonder how long that will last?!
