Anyone else have this problem?

Ever since I had kids, my body or mind is trained to only wake up when I hear a kid crying, I don't hear any alarm clocks ever, Everyday before my dh leaves for work he has to wake me up, because if I just set an alarm, my kids would always be late for school.

  • I wake up very easily. Any noise wakes me up since I had my DD, especially kid noises.

  • LOL! Me too. It's like my ears have been re-tuned. Of course I don't hear my kids whining, so it has it's benefits as well!

  • I am the same way. Once I am asleep I am out. I dont hear anything. I cant hear the phone, an alarm, dogs barking, nothing. But if one of my kids wakes up and starts coming downstairs or comes into my room I am up.

  • hey... I have a great idea! Record your child's voice on your cell phone and set the cell phone alarm... THAT is sure to wake you up!
