    as as can

    Hello

    My daughter got up as early as she could / as possible this morning.
    My daughter gets up as early as she can / as possible
    My daughter will get up as early as she ( ) /as possible

    Can you put "can" in the bracket? or "will"? can you say with "as possible" instead about the future things?

    Thank you very much

    My daughter will get up as early as she can = My daughter will get up as early as possible

    "My daughter will get up as early as she will" sounds very odd to me, though it may be OK in a rather mannered sense ('she doesn't normally get up very early at all, but if you're prepared to wait I imagine she'll choose to get up at some stage').
