  • Oh god yes! 14 month old is asleep by 8. My boys (6 and 9) are having a sleepover downstairs right now, so DH and I can relax! :)

  • Yes, my kids go to bed between 8 and 8:30, even in the summer. It gives me an hour or so to unwind before I go to bed.

  • Yup. I put my daughter to sleep between 7 and 8 every night, so me and hubby can have a little time to relax before we go to bed. :D

  • it seems like when i put them to bed a little early it always backfires on me. like tonight... they are usually in bed between 8 and 8:30. we got them in bed ten minutes before 8 (hardley even early!) and i still hear them talking in there, an hour later! and on top of that they will probably wake up at 6:30 instead of the usual 7!
    sometimes it feels lke i can never win!

  • My kids always go to bed between 8 and 9pm. (depends if there is school or not)

    I get up early...5am...to have my coffee and computer hour, and get a shower before they get up and the chaos starts again....

  • My dd is in bed by 7:30pm every night. It's then that I can have some "me time"- 5 glorious hours to do whatever I want to!!! I go to bed by 12:30am.
