So we have begun trying to teach Avery to stay in her bedroom in the morning until the clock says "7". A few days in and we are still trying to make this work. But tonight she surprised me by coming out of her room a few minutes ago and when I asked her why she was out of her room she said, "Look mom! It says 7!" So, I tried to explain the whole "not until it's morning" thing... classic.
Back to the drawing board.
