You know, I think you're on to something there...
Fortunately my kids let me sleep as late as I want, but if I fed Molly a little early the night before, she'll do her darn bestest to wake me up (mostly it was when I slept REALLY late [*cough*4pm*cough*], but lately she's been waking me up much earlier, like 10am (or *gasp* 7/8am). Can you tell I'm a sleepy slacker? Haha. But Molly will wake me up by poking me in the face if she sees my eyelids (meaning, I better keep my eyes OPEN unless I want to get stabbed in the cheek or eyeball). I'll try to trick her, keeping my eyes open (even though the sandman is pulling them down with ropes) and petting her, talking a little bit, then I'll discreetly close my eyes (while still talking and petting). It doesn't fool her, she immediately jumps up and taps my face again (it's weird because she doesn't even have to be looking at me to know my eyes are shut, lol). The only way I can escape her is to pull the blanket over my head. She'll try to "find" me, but she'll give up pretty quickly and will go find someone else to feed her (nobody will, so she'll return within the hour to try again). I love it, though, she's saved my butt a few times when I've had to get up early for something, lol
