What time do you go to bed, and what time do your kids get up?

I like to go to bed late, but my kids wake up early. I have tried to go to bed early like them, but I just lay in bed. What about you?

  • i put my 5 and 3 year old to bed at 8, but depending on when my husband gets home and we finish dinner and all that, it sometimes ends up being 8:30. if my husband didn't always make me stay up and "hang out" (really he just watches basketball and i play with the baby in a semi close proximity, or if he's asleep i'm folding laundry or still doing chores... i never clock out) i'd probably go to bed at the same time! maybe more realistically i'd like an hour downtime. It's because i always wake up as soon as the boys do which is pretty consistently 6:30-7, so i'm exhausted by 10pm. my husband is the one who kept me up til 1:30 am last night because his idea of "winding down" is to get drunk, watch basketball and whine at me that he needs attention so i should stay up. needless to say, he wasn't the one who woke up with the kids this morning, but i did and i'm frikkin TIRED and not happy about it

  • I was always a night owl, up late late (2-4 am) with college homework house cleaning etc. and slept in (10is)... that was when hubby worked nightshift now that he works days we had to change up everything.... we are putting kiddos down at about 9 and getting to sleep ourselves around 10 so we can get up at 5:30 for work... kids usually up between 6:30 and 7
