that I am a morning person. I have always gotten up in the morning my whole life. I always studies in the morning and can get up without alarm fully awake, get things done. I go to bed early at night. The only time I can stay awake at night is if I am not at home - otherwise I go to bed. My brain just shuts off late afternoon and I do not function very well after that time (brain wise like studying, reading, thinking, discussions, etc.)
My DH is the opposite. he can think at night and does not function in the morning has a hard time getting up etc. I have used the EXACT words above plus some to explain to him I DO NOT like to sleep in the morning. I actually like getting up and getting things done. The earlier the less stressful my day is. He calls me delusional and crazy because I cant function at night. He says it is not normal and I should sleep in the morning. (For example, this morning he tells me to go back to bed when he left for work)
For some reason, I cannot get him to understand that I am a morning person, and that is me. I cannot get him to understand that I like to get up - he just thinks there is something wrong in brain. My mom is a morning person as well.
How do I make him understand? I have tried talking to him and explaining just as above but he does not get it. He seems to think that everyone should be like him or that everyone is the same. I respect the fact that he is a night person by letting him sleep in the morning on his days off for as long as he wants. I don't wake him up to help me or discuss things, but he wants to have these lengthy discussions that I physically cannot do after the kids go to bed.
What to do? Sorry so long. Thanks for letting me at least get some of this out. LOL
