Do you ever wake up early just to have some alone time?

I've been up for 2 hours and everyone is still sleeping. Awwww...Peace!

  • I use to when my kids were little. But now my son gets up early to have his alone time so I can't. He's autistic and we live in a very small house so it's as important to him as it is to me.

  • No, but that's a great idea.

  •   Everyday!  There was a time in my life when I found it hard to get up every morning, then I had trouble sleeping.  I would be up and down all night long. My sleepless nights ended when I started making plans for what I could do while everyone else was sleeping.  It worked I started sleeping better but only for 4-6 hours. These days I sleep at least 6 hours a night wake up early with out an alarm just to have alone time.

  • No, but I'm a night owl :-)

    Instead, I will stay up after everyone else goes to bed. Even when I go to bed when my dh does, once he goes to sleep, I'll read in bed, or get up and do stuff around the house (quietly, of course), etc.

    So, no, I don't get up early, but I do give up some sleep time for some down time :-)

  • Pretty much everyday. I get up at about 6:30 and don't wake anyone else up until 8.

  • No, but I stay up later than everyone to have alone time.

    Well....I did. This month of my pregnancy, I'm ready to pass out by 10, so....very little alone time.

  • No, because as soon as I get up the kids will hear me and then get up, too. As it is they are usually up be 6am. I just CAN NOT get up any earlier then that and if I did the kids would be up within minutes (our house makes a lot of noise when you walk around it).

    I do stay up much later then anyone else to relax and do the things I want to do. Everyone is usually asleep by 9-10pm (in the summer) and I usually go to bed around midnight.
