    Hell no.
    If i happen to get up before my kids (which doesn't happen too often) i will sit and enjoy a hot drink in peace while surfing the net, i don't clean. Usually though if i wake first i just lay in bed and enjoy the silence before the chaos begins.
    I'd rather stay up at night and catch up on cleaning vs get up early.

    No way, I make sure everything is done before bed.
    School lunches get made once my 4yo is in bed.
    I make my older kids do the dinner dishes
    I put all school clothes out and ready for older kids, get mine and youngest kids clothes out and ready, kids homework and notes all sorted in their bags.
    I tidy the lounge and kitchen and my laundry gets done during the day.

    Mornings here are not rushed at all and I have 4 kids, the older 3 get dressed, make their own breaky and do their hair and teeth.

    I get ready and get 4yo ready, then do the school kids home readers with them ( they do them in the morning instead of at night because their brains are fresher in the a.m ).

    The kids usually have 1 1/2 hours to just chill out in the mornings before we leave for school/playgroup etc.

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

    No way
    Only time we get up before the kids is if we are going somewhere.

    I think I would DD is 5 months now and I can't seem to get anything done unless she's asleep so now I get up early and have a shower so at least I feel good :-)

    Ugh, no way. I like to involve my kid in chores so she learns how to do them although it takes 10 times longer!

    Yuk, no way!!!

    I either do what needs to be done once DD is in bed at night or just do things through out the day.

    I value my sleep way too much to ever wake up before I need too 😊

    No.. Definitely not! I like my kids to see the amount of housework that is involved with the day-to-day runnings of the family.. I do not want them growing up thinking that some magical cleaning fairy flies in a does all the housework in the middle of the night
