    Erm no, I'd have to be up at 5am to have time to do anything before DS gets up at 5.30/6am!

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

    Now that DS sleeps through I have the best of intentions BUT no matter how quiet I am he just knows I'm awake and has to get up too.

    We are early risers, and yes, at the moment, we both get up at about 5.30am to do a quick prep for the day, since DD (6 weeks old) has been waking at 4.30am for a feed and I get up once she goes back to sleep. eg this morning, by 6am, I had cleaned her bottles, put out the rubbish, sorted the dishwasher, put in a load of washing and enjoyed a coffee with DH before DS1 and DS2 got up, which is 6am. The early morning is my favourite time of the day. Happy days!

    When I am working, yes I do. Although it's rare for there not to be at least one child up at any given time.

    No! Absolutely not!

    My "me" time is at night and the chores are done before I go to bed or will get done during the day.

    I love sleeping until the girls wake and then having cuddles in bed. I wouldn't give that up for chores!

    No way!! I do a the tiny bit of tidying up that's left over for the day once they are in bed I do a tidy up while thermy is cooking dinner or while they are eating dinner.

    I can't relax in the evening if the house is messy.

    Nope. Although I love the theory. My secret dream is to be a stepford wife. But alas....I'm not.
    DS1 gets up at 6:00am every morning and plays the iPad till we all get up around 7:00. Nothing would make me get up before he does! Madness!
