How late do you let your kids sleep in in the summer?
Dad and I typically leave for work by about 6:15/6:30AM so we're in bed at 10 and up at 5:30. Due to some wonky work schedule swaps, I have been home a few mornings this week. I kid you not, the kiddos have not been getting out of bed til 11 or later. I knew they were sleeping in, but didn't realize it was THAT late.
Aside from walking the dogs or getting started on their laundry (which is supposed to be done BEFORE we get home), there's nothing they really need to be up for. They're not staying up late--they usually go to bed when we do. And since they really have no chores or responsibilities anymore, I guess there's no harm in letting them sleep the day away.
The only issue that I have with it is that they are supposed to be taking the dogs on their long walk on the days that I work. It's so hot/humid here that if you don't do that early in the morning, you simply can''t without risk of heat stroke to the dogs and humans alike. So the dogs have not been getting their long walks--just their two 15 min ones in the a.m. before I go to work and another short one when I get home. I'm hiring a dog walker starting next week because in addition to the walks, the kids aren't paying very good attention to the pups and getting them out to potty and I'm tired of the messes. But that's kind of a separate thing.
So...how late do you let your kids sleep in?
