How long does your SO sleep in?

He wakes up at 5am mon-fri but when it comes to his days off, on sat and sun he likes to sleep in, very late. Yesterday he didnt get up till 3pm! It makes me soo mad because we have a 2yr old and a 1yr old and I am 9 months preggers. I try lots of ways to get him to get up but he just wont. Its so unfair and I feel like its making me want to leave him. I'm sick of being soo lonely all the time, and taking care of our children all by myself because he wants to sleep. The kids want his attention too, but he wont even get up for them! I just dont know what to do anymore!

  • I'm in the same boat but mine hubby doesn't sleep in until 3pm. My DH gets up at 5:30 Mon.-Fri. I get up with him to fix coffee and pack his lunch. It's a nice way to start the day. But I wish it would carry over to the weekends. I still have to get up about 6:30 or 7 with our youngest and he'll sleep and sleep - usually until 11am or so. Usually I just bring him a cup of coffee and say it's time to get up or I send the kids in to wake him up. He's not happy about it but he usually gets up.

  • On his day off that the kids are at school 10:30 or 11. On Sunday 9ish. I think he should spend time with the kids when he is off and home, which isn't much.

  • Days that he works he'll sleep to 6:30am, days off usually between 9:00am - 10:00 am depending on how tired he is.

  • When my S/O was younger he was exactly like yours, and it so's irritating. I know I wanted to sleep in or get a break too, sometimes I just let the kids get in bed & climb all over him. Now older getting up @ 5 or so on weekend he gts up ard 6-7 all the time.
