I can't hang anymore!

When DH and I were married without children we were always up late even into the morning hours. At 10 or 11 at night we'd spontaneously go to the 24hr Walmart, play pool or just go for drives. Lol I had no problem with being up all night, even watching movies. Since we have been parents obviously alot of that has changed. I can't even stay up late in the comfort of my home watching movies. Going to bed at 9 or 10 is awesome now. I wouldn't trade being a mommy for anything. I can't hang anymore though, being mommy is exhausting. Lol Please tell me I am not alone! I am in my 20's and sometimes feel like an old fart, not being able to stay up late. Haha

My dh and I are 26, we get excited when our son wants to go to bed at 7 so we can go to bed by 8! Lol. I feel old. If we go out on weekends we pull the old people card and leave by 9 or 10.

I was 19 when I had dd 1, and I couldn't hang. Had dd2 at 25 and felt close to being a senior citizen. Now with dd3, had her in my 30's, I have no problems up all night, go figure.

Me neither honestly. I am not complaining. Although, every once and awhile it would be nice to hang in there for a movie marathon or something. The other day I was excited to watch 3 movies back to back... I had my drink, snacks and popcorn handy and next thing I know I wake up to a blank tv screen, glasses on! I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and went back to bed. I didn't even make it through the first movie. Haha
