I can't win when it comes to this - my DS is almost 6 years old and has been an early riser since the day he was born. 6 am would have been a sleep in for me up until he was about age 2, and now our usual time to wake is 6.30 am. He just LOVES getting out of bed, I have to put him to bed so early because if he stays up late he still wakes early and is a grump for the rest of the day.
When he stays with my mum a handful of nights per year, I still wake at 6 anyway and can't get back to sleep and feel funny without him!

I have plenty of days like that - today is one of them. I only a couple of hours sleep and DD2 has been crying all day because she is getting her molars and nothing i do helps her. DD1 is a using this as a chance to be a turd and get into mischief - i'm totally don't want to be a parent today.

I knew there had to be others! Haha. Atleast he gives me good day time naps so that I can sit on bubhub and complain about him :P
And yes he does the whole 'lay his head on me and smile like a little angel' thing early in the mornings. Sigh.

I definitely know the feeling! I'm 20 weeks pregnant and reminiscing about when I was at this stage with DS1. I was studying from home, so I got up whenever I wanted, showered whenever I wanted...and going out was so easy!
Now I have an 18 month old little boy, and he's my entire world...but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have these days fairly often lately, being so tired!

OP I started a thread on this last year- it was MUCH more detailed than yours but it essentially said the same thing- I had pages and pages of members all saying they had their 'moments' too.....

yeah I know those days,
Ds sleeps til 8 or 9 am cos he doesnt go to bed til 11pm - midnight (and wakes still during the night) this morning ds woke once at 1am and I slept from 2 am - 6am without a wake up and at 6 am I was like awake
somedays I wake up and think is it bedtime yet? (ds doesnt nap usually of a day)
somedays I cant help but think what the **** was I thinking when I thought I could do this "parenting" thing :l
The other day I realised why I NEVER take my son grocery shoping,
Although it was good that I didnt add random **** to the shop, just gtfi and gtfo as quick as possible (trolley +over tired almost 2 year old = recipe for disaster)
*hugs* hope tomorow is better for you

Im hearing you. I think to myself regularly am I mad going back again? Then I feel guilty for that thought.
I love my son with all my heart but sometimes I wish he had an 'off' switch.

You are absolutely, 100% NORMAL As much as we love our little munchkins, doesn't mean we love the 6am wake ups etc.. we're not crazy.. LOL!
I am sooo taking advantage of my time and lesiure during this pregnancy.. I'm up with DS at 6am, get him ready for school and he's on the bus at 7:30, then I hope back into bed and "we" (me and bubba in utero) have a nap I'm lucky that I'm not working so I can do this. I'm naturally exhausted due to hormones and so lucky to be able to sleep in peace etc..
I'm not stupid, lol.. lapping it up while I can! In just over four months, these naps and leisure time will be a distant memory.. at least for next 5 years!!
