What a helpful little read.

My kid recently learned to wake up without waking me, so I might need to consider an alarm soon, for the first time in years. I was getting real used to every morning waking to her repeating, “I WANT TO WAKE UP I WANT TO WAKE UP…” through the monitor until I went downstairs to tell her, yes, she could wake up.

Now I’m imagining an alarm based on her whining that, but at gradually increasing volumes. Hahaha. Or birdsong.

Congrats on the feature!
