  • My nieces are 3 and 6. I give them a bath at 8, and their in the bed by 9. When school start, I usually give the baths maybe around 7 or 7:45. I try to keep them on the same schedule during the summer break too.

  • my 10 week old varies lol she eats allot so lol........ my 2.5 yo 7pm sharp to 7am sharp, (with a midnight natural drink) he thrives on a strict schedule. My 7yo goes to bed at 8 sharp on school nights (and 2 weeks prior to the start of school) she gets up at 7:50 a half hour before her bus gets to the house, she does well with this. I like my children having strict schedules, it works well for both them and me.

  • My kids are not in school, but they are 2 ans 10 months and they are in bed by 8. Occasionally if the 2 year old takes a late nap I let her stay up until 8:30.

  • Well my oldest is going to be 10 in October, & she is gorgeous, (will add pictures later), my son is 8 my little knight in shinning armour, and my youngest is going to be 5 this month, my little girly girl princess who loves to play in mommies high heels and boots : ) !!
    They are all home schooled so they are allowed to stay up until 9:00, but have to be in their rooms no later than 8:30, and must be bathed and washed up prior to 8:30 so they can watch a little t.v. or have a story read to them by my oldest.
    I wake them up at about 7 in the morning to get ready for school but some things must be done before we can actually say time for school. Chores are to be completed first like, bed making, washing up,completely dressed and breakfast is already ate, and kitchen is cleaned, (group help). At this time it is about 9 and we are ready to start class.
    Once class is done at about 2 they have all afternoon to play.

  • My daughter is almost 10 months old and she goes to bed between 8pm and 8:30 pm. She usually wakes up between 6:30 and 7am. I try to get her to stay up a little later so she will sleep later, but no luck. That schedule just works for her :)
