What time do you wake up each am?

Do you wake before the kids? What do you do?

  • On weekdays my son usually comes very early in the morning to finish the last few hours of sleep in our bed. Then we will shower ourselves and then get him up and moving around 6:00am. I like making sure he has plenty of time to dress, eat, and play. This way it is not rushed and feels like we are in a hurry. Everything is relaxed and we can have some room for play and not having to get on to him. While I would love for all of us to sleep later - not being rushed is big one for us.

  • 5:45. I wake up DH & my oldest (he catches the bus at 6:30), then wake up DD at 7:00 (catches the bus at 8:00). Then I get some alone time until my 3yo wakes up, usually about 9:00.

  • I wake up at 6:10, start coffee, go outside to smoke, then come in and wake the kids up to get ready. The bus comes at 7am.

  • 5 is when my alarm goes off - yes it's before the kids. I get up, get dressed, grab something to eat & drink, and hit the road. DH gets up with the kids 2 hours later.

  • 6:30 and then it's off to feed the kids, get everyone dressed and off we go. Starting next week it's 6:00 because my dh will be back to work and I'll have to bottle feed 4 baby calves before everyone gets up. At least it's supposed to be getting warmer next week.

  • I get up at 5:30 on school days. I put my pj's on, get the kids up (6yr old & 10yr old), start coffee, fix dh's lunch for work, and make sure the kids are showered, dressed, fed, & teeth brushed. Their bus comes around 6:45. On the weekends, the kids usually get up at 7 & dh & I get up around 8.
