Do you wake up before your kiddos?

Or do you sleep until they wake up? Just curious!

eta: I guess this only applies really to sahms of little ones who don't have to be up / get every one up at a certain time for work, school, etc. So if you don't have to get up and go anywhere....

Sleep until they wake up, which is usually around 7:30

My kids are in school now, so yes, but when they were young, no way. I slept every minute I could. Even now they wake up before me on weekends.

Other - some days they wake me up, some days I'm awake and they're still sleeping.

I have always been a night owl, hater of early mornings so I sleep as long as he lets me. I love the mornings i hear him in the crib playing nicely so I can keep my eyes closed for a few more minutes.

Re: Do you wake up before your kiddos?

My 5 year old is an early riser...the rest of us, including his 8 mo. old sister, are not. He gets up around 8:30 gets himself ready for the day then plays til I (or dad sometimes, but he works overnight most days) get up at 9:30 with the baby....though that hour of sleep is more me just laying in bed too comfy to move but not being able to sleep because he is jamming on his guitar/piano/drums or playing with the dog

Oh, if he had it his way he would be up at 6:30, but I retrained him REAL quick on that!! but yeah 8:30 is still 'early' for me but my lil one doesn't go to bed 'til 12 (night owl to the max!!) and I've always been a night owl (pre-kids my bedtime was about 3 am). My natural circadian rhythm is set to go to bed around 2/3am and get up about 10/11am...I've readjusted a bit for work and kids though.
