Is 5:00 too early?

Is 5:00 too early to send kids to bed? Mine are already sick of each other and winter break. They don't go back to school until Jan 6th and I've had enough of their bickering. I DO think some of their issues yesterday and today are excitement........but UGH!!!

Hopefully once dinner is in their tummies their attitudes will improve.

  • mine would have wanted to go to bed at 5, so she could wake up at some ungodly hour for Christmas day
    no way!, she would wake at 4am, or earlier

  • What about getting them all to cuddle up and watch a Christmas movie....and remind them that Santa is watching them!

  • Mine too. I put myself in time out once daddy finally came home.

  • Dad won't be home before midnight, thanks to this effing double, split shift.

  • I've been wanting to send mine to bed since 5, not because of them, but because of me. Now that I'm an adult I finally understand that the sooner you're asleep, the faster Christmas will come. This concept is completely lost on my kids, though.

    Soon, very soon then it will be bedtime.

  • I use to separate mine when I could not stand them anymore.
