Are you up before the kids??

Do you get up before your kids or do you get up when they get up??

I get up when my two year old gets up, around 8:00am and then my 4 and 6 yo get up around 9:30am. My sister thought this was terrible of me that I just get up when the kids do. I'm not sure what the problem was, but we'll never agree on anything. I shower at night, so I don't really have to do that in the morning.

I try to get up before my son but it's hard because he is a very light sleeper. Once I start stirring, he is awake within 10 minutes. We wake up between 5-6 A.M. most mornings. My daughter sleeps in like a teenager. LOL

I am up before the kids. I like to have my workout and shower time before they get up.

During the week I get up like ten minutes before him. But on weekends I get up hours before him. He's 13 and sleep until 11:30. Then I finally wake the child up!

Ds ALWAYS wakes me up. He's 11 though so he can make his own breakfast. He usually comes and gets me when my coffee pot is ready.

My older kids get up and do their own thing. Eat watch TV whatever. I have the baby monitor on so when DD is up it wakes me up if I'm not up already.

It never fails when I try to get up early and get things done my 2yo will be toddling down the stairs shortly after...no matter what time I get up! I think he senses that he's too far away from me.

My older son is 9 and he wakes up before me now. He wakes up by 7am everyday..no alarm or anything. Just crazy, lol. I set my alarm for about 7am to get up and make sure he does what he needs to before school.
And when my 5 yo gets up, so do I if I'm not already up.

Recently I have been taking a morning nap after older DS is off to school. Being just shy of 9 months pregnant and working late nights is a bad combo, lol!
