Bedtime: The Worst of Times, The Best of Times

Bedtime is a **beep** in our house... let's just say it can be a bit of a pain. Most nights at 9 o' clock, I can hear my kids playing in their room...bedtime is at 8 o' clock. Why are they up so late? Why must they have no concept of time? I have no idea. I used to be under the misconception that kids would sleep in, if they stayed up later...this may be true of teenagers, but it is the complete opposite with toddlers. They seem to wake up at the crack of dawn despite the fact that they were partying at eleven, which means mommy no longer gets to "sleep-in" on weekends.

I am so glad that we now have the ZAZOO photo clock. This thing is a genius idea, it uses photos and pictures to help kids understand when it's wake up time and when it's bedtime.

"ZAZOO Photo Clock helps kids and parents get more sleep. It's an innovative sleep solution for children who wake too early or do not stay in bed all night. Parents can use the pre-programmed images or personalized options set to an alarm time, and the screen will give children visual cues when it's time to get out of bed. The photo clock grows with your child with features including a rotating photo frame, music, audio book, alarm clock, and more."

 Now instead of telling my 4 year old at 8 o' clock it's bedtime, I can have her check her clock to look for the moon and stars. When they see the moon and stars, it's time to stay in bed, when the sun comes up they can get out of bed. I am really enjoying no more 4 AM wake-up calls and my bed being invaded by small people.
This clock can also be personalized with photos, so it can be a digital photo frame. This helps soothe my girls at night because they can watch a slide show of their loved ones as they go to sleep. This is a parenting must-have! Please if you want to "sleep-in" and be the parent of a toddler buy this clock for your little one. Check out this ZAZOO video all about the clock.
