How do I become a morning person? Getting a kid seems like the only option, and that's not happening for 1 million reasons.

Kids didn't change me to be a morning person. Nothing really will . . Z

Don't sleep at night. No morning blues

I was a night owl in college and work forced the change. Also realized I can be more productive if I'm not sleeping in till noon on weekends. Gotta maximize that time for gym and brunch. What's your motivation for converting? If you don't need to, then why change? If you do need to for some reason, there's your motivation.

Just change your schedule. It sucks, but you'll get used to it!

I've been dealing with this for years. Finally falling asleep. I can write more later if you'd like

I noticed how the only consistent "morning people" are those with kids. Work doesn't force me to it. Yeah. Maybe when I get one!

Few weeks of adjusting your schedule, I am a morning person but it's my natural set point. When I stopped fighting it I felt much better about everything. Set reminders on your phone to go to bed and then stick to an alarm for a few weeks even on the weekend. After a bit you don't even need it anymore.

Pretend you're in another time zone.

I’ve been saving all of my kid’s clothes for her little sister, but this is the first time she’s outgrown her underwear. What do experiences moms do? Save it to be used again by the little one? Recycle it? Donate it and buy new underwear when the second needs it? The thought of sharing underwear kinda weirds me out. I also feel weird donating it, but I was reading online that there are places that really appreciate second hand underwear.

Not confession but asking for advice: I have a sibling who, since childhood, thinks that my mom favors me more than her. For example, if she’s eating smth and my mom goes ‘we’ll leave some for you’ to me in front of her, she would get mad at her and show temper tantrums. She has told my mom how she feels too but I think she’s getting mad at very trivial things? I don’t know if she hates me or is jealous of me since I’m the supposed favored child. Should I just keep pretending everything’s ok?
