    Default Do you get up before the kids to do chores?

    See this would be ideal for me and I've 'planned' on getting up before DS to do chores soo many times. It just never eventuates. Maybe when he's older.

    No way, no how. Sleep is too important. I do what needs doing before I go to bed at night.

    I rather stay in bed because I know I won't be seeing it for a long time! I try and do the housework when DS takes his nap.

    I tidy and clean up the night before. There's no way I could get up before DS to do chores, I'm not a morning person. The only time I get up before him is the 2 days I work and that's to shower and get ready.

    Default Re: Do you get up before the kids to do chores?

    My house is spotless before I go to bed, 98% of the time. so there wouldn't really be anything for me to so, but I wouldn't anyways, my DS2 still wakes up all night long, so I sleep as much as I can in the mornings

    Hell no! I tidy up and do laundry etc before bed. I only get out of bed if absolutely necessary.

    NO way...

    Hubby gets up first and makes me a morning milo, then we wake the kids. When he is away he always ring at 6 am to wake me up with a 'I love you'

    The theory is that I get up before the kids but the realty is as soon as move in bed DD is awake and up and as soon as DS hears a noise he's up. Seriously, I got up during the night a few weeks ago to go to the toilet to hear DS opening his blind because he thought it was time to get up. If I need to get up during the night to go to the toilet I have to get DF from the sofa bed up to lay with DD.

    No way! I cherish my sleep too much. We do everything through the day and distract or involve the kids so it gets done, daily.
    We clean the kitchen/dishes and floors again once they've gone to bed but that's all that needs doing.
