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

    Yes. Dd2 wakes up for a feed at 5am and after I put her to bed - I put some laundry on, prepare breakfast, pack the pram for our morning walk and then have a heavenly cup of tea by MYSELF. DH occ joins me for breakfast if he chooses to get up.

    Dd1 wakes up around 6am.

    I would never get up before the kids!
    I have a 7 year old and an almost 10 month old and am 28 weeks pregnant!
    I dont sleep much at night so the early morning is my only time to sleep! You have the whole day to do chores, and then they will be there the next day too.

    Nope. I get up before my kids do and exercise...on the days I'm not exercising (basically sunday and maybe a sat) I get up before them and study. However, my kids wake up at 6am so it means I'm up at 5am to do these things (I leave the house to exercise).

    No way I like my sleep too much only time I'm awake before her is if I have to be. Which soon will be on Tafe days but otherwise I wake up at the same time or just before then wake her up on school days/ days out etc.

    No way, unless I wake up early and can't get back to sleep. Dd2 tends to wake atleast once during the night (more right now as she's teething) so my sleep is precious!!!

    BAHAHAHAHAHA...

    AhAHAHAHAHAHA....

    OMG STOP... HAHAHAHAHAHA....

    Wait... people seriously GET OUT OF BED when they don't actually have to? For real?

    They's cray cray.

    (And by that, I hope you get the fact that never in a million years would I get up before DD in order to clean).

    If we don't have to be anywhere, DS will sleep until 8.30, so I'm often up before him, but there's no way it's to do chores. More like staring blankly at the tv whilst guzzling a few strong coffees.

    I have gotten up early a few times and it was remarkable how much i achieved in tat short amount of time but then i remember how much i love to sleep.

    I set the washing machine to go on at 7am so by the time we're all up and dressed its ready to hang out

    Hell no! When they were little, I needed every scrap of sleep i could muster. Now they are older (3&4) I need every bit of quiet time I can muster. Lately I have been getting up at 6.30 so I can get maybe an hour to myself to shower and have brekkie... but I have to be quiet as a mouse or DD2 wakes up. She rarely sleeps past 7.30 (which magically morphs into 6.30 on weekends )
