I thought summer break was for sleeping in. Not for dd.  S/O had to get up at 6:30,, of course his alarm woke me up twice, Right after he left dd woke me up. I asked her what time it was and she said 7:16. Im like WTF? go back to bed its too early to get up lol.  Shes always up between 7 and 7:30. Then she woke me up at 8:30 cuz she was hungry and we dont have anymore cereal or thingd=s she can make herself.  Anyone else have any early birds?

My dd is an early bird.  She is usually awake by 6 no matter what time she went to bed, however me and my ds both love sleeping in, but can't this summer as I have been baby sitting a very good friend's ds and they are here no later than 7:15 every morning monday-friday so the days when i work until 1am it's a little rough, but we make it work.

Mine is a pain in the rear to get in bed at 8 on school nights but then is really hard to get up in the mornings if she goes to bed any later. She gets up at 7 for skool cuz bus comes at 7:25 and we have to walk a block to bus stop

Mine are usually up between six and seven. Sometimes even before six and my almost four yr old was up at five. And its hard because i dont get the cleaning done and into bed til between ten and eleven and have trouble falling askeep. For almost two weeks most nights my seven yr old wakes me up crying because he having nightmares and my almost two yr old has been waking up twice a night this past week. Im starting to feel like a zombie

It's b/c summer break just happens to coincide with the sun coming up earlier in the day. Mine will sleep till 7:30, 8:00 during the winter, but in summer they're up like clockwork around 6am.

I am always up at the latest by 6:30am so I don't worry if my boys get up early.
