 We play Tickle Monsters at 6:45

I grab a pair of jeans and a few shirts, let her pick out a shirt from the three I put out. Get her dressed, potty, hair and teeth brushed, socks and shoes on. Then DH takes her to school by 7:30 so she can eat, then I go in and get DS pick him up and cuddle him a minute, then lay him down and change his diaper and dress him (three and SNs) then he plays while I get the baby up and dressed and get her bottle. Then we take DH to work, come back and I cook breakfast for me and DS (DH never eats it and complains if I cook before that) then make sure DS is ready and get him out for the bus...

Normally i let him wake me up... then I bring him to bed for cuddles. But if I have to wake him for an appt. I turn on the light and say his name a few times.rub his back and he usually wakes up... but he's 22m

I turn on their lights and yell "WAKE UP!!!!". 

Revenge for their toddler years I guess. Ha. 

Just kidding, I dont yell it but I nicely say "its time to wake up".

If my oldest doesnt wake up before i do, then i go into her room, rub her shoulder and tell her its time to wake up and get ready for school. Then i go get her clothes ready.

My younger two sleep until they want to get up. I don't dare wake my son (3y) up until hes ready- hes too cranky if he gets woke up.
