5:00 am is sure early unless you are 19 months old. The girl was up early this morning and would not go back to sleep, my wife and I both tried. Turns out she was hungry and we figure it must be a growth spurt. Granted she is a good eater, unlike her brother, and she will anything and everything she can get her hands on. Maybe she just wants to work on talking as each day it seems she has something new to say: chair, shoe, cracker, cookie, juice, choo-choo. All I know is 5:00 am is probably easy when you are 19 months old, although we may pay for it when it gets closer to bed time. When you are the parent, 5:00 am is not as much fun unless you are like my father who gets up very early for what I call his "4 am retiree meeting". Maybe she needed to get up to talk to Dzia Dzia*, or maybe because we did something and she was just punishing her parents.
* Dzia Dzia is a polish term for Grandpa and if you need a pronouciantion just find a Polish person to help you out.
