Just wondering if there are any other mommies like me who like to wake up before the crack of dawn just to have some mommy time.  I am usually up by 5:30-6, just so I can have a little time by myself, and to check cafemoms of course!  Do other homeschool mommies do this as well?  It seems to be the only time of day I get to spend by myself.  lol

Which time? Because I wake up just about every hour. But I voted after 8, because by 9 I'm tired of going back to bed.

I get time by myself all the time.  I refuse to get up earlier than I need to.  I prefer staying up late than getting up early.  I refuse to get up before 7 am unless I have a really good reason.

I'm the same. I usually get up at around 7 to take my medications, but I then usually fall back to sleep until around 8:30-9 but I'm not really coherent till closer to 10. My eldest is a morning person and is usually awake by 7am, and usually he wakes his little brother (a non-morning person like me) by around 8-8:30 am. But I'm usually up till around 2 am!

Quoting Silverkitty:

I'm up after 7, like 9 or 10. Dd doesn't get up until then either. We are night owls and work best in the afternoon.

It varies. I get up with DH on his work days at about 5:40am. I am up for about an hour...and depending on how I feel after he leaves, sometimes I go back to bed (most of the time, lol). Then I generally get back up around 8:00-8:30. The kids get up between 7:30-8:00 and talk quietly or get dressed and then come get me for breakfast. I am a night owl, so I get my time after they go to bed.

 I get up at 10AM not because I am sleeping in but because We don't go to bed until midnight. My hubby doesn't leave for work until 11:30AM & doesn't get home until 10:30PM.

 I am up right around 6am when my husband leaves for PT. My oldest ds (15) gets up about 5am on his own. He is my early riser and goes to bed by 9pm. My 5, 12, & 13yo are up by 5yo would sleep till 10am though if you let her lol. They go to bed between 8 and 9pm.

I'm usually up by 6 a.m. My husband has to be at work by 7 so I make him breakfast. I make his lunch the night before.
