  • I think that as long as the kids are taken care of it really doesn't matter. I wouldn't stay in bed until 11 if my 5 and 3 year old were running around unattended...but usually my DH gets up with them and I sleep in until about 9...if we had a late night I'll sleep to 10. DH usually takes a nap on the weekends, does you MIL not agree with naps either?? lol

  • I don't sleep past 8 am on the weekends, but honestly, I don't think it's any business of your MIL's how late you sleep. (c:

  • i think till whenever, if your kids get up way before 11, it might not be the best idea, but if they sleep in its fine!

  • I don't think I've slept past 9:00 in years, but if you don't have anything planned, why not?

  • I think it depends on when you go to bed. I am one that can't sleep in not matter what time I go to bed. My DH however can sleep and sleep!! Do what's right for you. Don't let the MIL tell you what is right and wrong!

  • Whatever you feel you need/deserve, balanced with how much you want to get done in the day.

    You also don't want to throw off your sleep schedule for the week, by sleeping many hours later on the weekend, than you do Monday through Friday.
