Cute, night owl that actually haunts the edge of your bed in the middle of the night. Because: hunger, thirst, or hearing a bird.

Dounia (45 years old), mother of Rayan (13 years old) and Maylene (11 years old), and adoptive mother of three sisters, ages 10, 9, and 7 years:

“Sometimes, we go through periods where we are woken up multiple times for each baby, sometimes up to eight times a night. My husband wakes up happier and easier than I do, so they usually stand on his side of the bed.

Our youngest of the seven takes the cake. She recently came to me, washed and dressed, with her teeth brushed and her hair in a ponytail, and asked if she could have breakfast. When I looked at the alarm clock, it turned out to be only four-thirty. Eh, that was a bit early! When she was allowed to wake up at six-thirty, she was ready in no time.

Jennifer (39), mother of Elle (7):

“Elle regularly wakes up around 4am and then refuses to sleep any further. Hunger, thirst, dreams, I know those excuses now.

After much argument and negotiation, in the summer it is often followed by the classic: “It’s already light, Mum.” How about: “I heard a bird call, now I don’t have to sleep anymore because that means the day has started.”

She also often comes to tell us when another hour has passed: “Mom, it’s six o’clock now.” And by the way, she has a good day, even if it starts in the middle of the night. “I can’t exactly say that about myself.”
