What do you wake up to?

I never use an alarm anymore. My 2 year old son wakes me each morning calling from his room for mama :) I love it!

  • Me, still an alarm. My dd doesnt always wake up when she should. Of course on weekends she somehow magically wakes up before 6am. Its a mystery.

  • My internal alarm clock wakes me around 6am. But I still set my real clock to 6:45 just in case. I need to get 3 kids to school plus myself to school and can't take the risk of not being on time.

  • It used to be the kids...the alarm gets them up now. However, my new alarm is my puppy who never fails to wake up by 7a.m. every morning- including weekends!

  • The alarm, but not that annoying buzz noise. I use the radio.

  • I have an alarm set "just in case" but I usually wake up before.

  • It depends on the day. On the weekdays that I work, I set an alarm, because I have to be at work at 6, and everyone is still asleep. On my days off, and Saturday (which I work but not until 10 am) I wake up when one or both of the kids wake up.
