Stay at home mommies- do you wake up the same time every day? And do you nap at all when the kiddos nap?

  • We get up from 7am to 8:30 am but its different each day. We nap from noon to one for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Once in a while I lay down in bed to get some rest during nap but usually busy cleaning or I like to check things out on the computer. I should nap w/ her more often though :)

  • I wake up when the kids wake me up & then don't nap, so I don't nap.

    I sure could USE a nap right about now, though.

  • I get up with my hubby around 3:30 and go back to bed until my boys wake me up. I usually don't nap but sometimes I just have to! But then again my boys don't nap anymore either!

  • I'm not a SAHM, but I work from home 3 days a week and of course there's the weekends. On the days I'm in the office I get up at about 6:45-7 and the kids wake around 7:30-8. On days we are home the kids wake me anytime between 7:30 and 8:30, once in a while my son will get up earlier. DD4 is not napping anymore so I don't nap with the kids, and even before she stopped I rarely did. I found that by the time I got them down and settled there was just too much to do, even when I did lay down my mind would race and by the time I fell asleep they'd be getting up and I'd feel even worse than if I didn't nap at all.

  • I wake up around 8:3am (id love to wake up at 7am though!)... Sit around on computer till dd wakes up at 9am.. (If I wake up earlier, she usually wakes up early. the earlier the better!)...she comes in the living room, watches cartoons about 30min to wake up. we turn off tv. eat breakfast. I clean, stopping to play/read to her on occasion when she wants. around noon we go take a nap - i lay with her until she is asleep. sometimes i nap with her sometimes i dont. depends on which i want more --shut eye or alone time. when we wake up its time to go outside to swim, go to park, get dressed to go shopping, ect...
    Around 5-5:30 I start fixing dinner.. (or a quicker dinner if we are gone/ in the pool late-sometimes till 7pm).....after that its bath time. chilll time & off to bed. DD is a late person so she is usually up until 9:30-10. Im also naturally up till 11-midnight..

  • I wake up at 6:40 every morning to get dd ready for school. Sometimes I take a nap when ds does. Dd still has two more days of school and then I am looking forward to sleeping in.
