Have your kids ever did this?

Has any of your kids ever woke up on Christmas morning and started opening gifts, without waking you up? I was thinking about this, because I'm scared that my daughter would do this. Just wondering if anyone else's kids have ever done this. I plan on putting up the baby gate, but my daughter can climb right over it, and my son can too, if she helps him. So I don't know, I probably sound stupid, but I was curious. I might even make them sleep in my room just in case, but I'm not sure yet.

I always tell my kids that they need to wake me up first or they dont get to keep their presents, so they ALWAYS wake me up first!

I think if maybe you talk to her, and let her know that christmas morning, when she wakes up ..that she needs to come and get you before opening any gifts ..everything should be fine. Every child gets excited..and wants there mommy there to see open the gifts up with them.

mine woke us up at 12:05 we told them to go back to bed for a couple of hours so at 2:05am they woke us up with coffee in hand. we couldn't resist so we got up open gifts then everyone took a nap.they were about 7 or 8 at the time.it became a tridition.

We did that one year!  My stepmom later told me they got about 30 minutes sleep that night!

I used to scatter jingle bells on the floor and hang some on the door so if they opened it before I was up Id hear them. Worked like a charm!!

I hope so. I'm just worried that they'll be too excited to wake me up, and start opening gifts. lol I worry about the dumbest things!
