See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Okay so help me settle this argument dh and I have been having. So right now we're staying at my MIL's house while we look for a new apartment (we've been here for a few months). Usually dd (2.5 years old) sleeps in our room but in her own bed but here there is no room for her bed so she's been sleeping with us for now. Dh gets up for work between 5 and 6 am depending on what time they need him there that day. Dd and I usually don't get up until 8 or 9 am. Dh insists on setting the alarm 45 minutes earlier then he has to get up so he can push the snooze button 3 times. That means his alarm goes off 4 times every morning so basically it wakes dd and I up 4 separate times everyday. I've also asked dh to set out his clothes and keys and everything he needs for work the night before so he doesn't have to come out of the bedroom a bunch of times in the morning. He's gotten pretty good about setting out the clothes but ends up searching the bedroom for his keys at the last minute at least a couple times a week. It drives me crazy, I have the hardest time falling back asleep after I'm woken up and dd is young enough that she still needs 12 hours of sleep a night so waking her up multiple times a morning just seems rude to me. Am I being unreasonable wanting him to set all his stuff out the night before? Or wanting him to not hit snooze a billion times a morning? He thinks I'm unappreciative of the fact that he works so I can stay home with dd.
