Anybody else have to wake their child up to gifts?

My husband had to work so we did Christmas at 5:00 am. We had to wake our son up to open them early so he wouldn't have to wait until Daddy comes home.

Yes. We woke them up at 7. DH is really sick with the flu and he woke up at 4 and his fever finally broke at 6:30. The are going to be 13 so they probably wouldn't have woken up till 9 :/ lol
DH is sleeping now. Poor guy!

Lol no. My 5yr old was up at 5:30. I made him wait until 6 and then we woke everyone else up. It is 7:30 and we are done opening and on to playing!

I sure wouldn't wake a kid up to open gifts. I also wouldn't have a problem with waiting until a parent gets off work. It would seem much more relaxing to open gifts then than to rush through it at dawn.

 You would do Christmas without your husband there? How considerate of you.

I'm not waking a 1 year old up at 5 am unless the house is on fire. It's not really an issue anyway, my dh doesn't have the kind of job that would require him to work holidays. It's 8:30 am and I'm the only one awake. The baby was up for a couple hours but is napping.

Then why wouldn't you wait until your husband was home?

She made it seem like that wasn't an option. In the imaginary world of my husband working Christmas Day I would, or open most gifts Christmas Eve.
