Another morning person here. I usually need to get up and go to work but on a weekend I will be up cleaning, doing washing or cooking. Last weekend I was at Coles at 6:30am sorting out the grocery shopping.

I'm lazy *cough* I mean slow, really slow starter. If my kids woke at 5.30 I would send them both back to bed. They usually have another 40mins-1hr then dd 3yo will snuggle with me in my bed for a bit and play on my phone. Ds 15mth old will start yelling out and I give up and get up.
we do breakky straight away as they are always hungry and demanding of it. Dd goes off and dresses herself when she's finished breakky (habit, I've never forced this), I half help ds with his breakky while I have a cuppa/put dry dishes away.
then we move into the lounge and I watch the morning news with another cuppa and the kids pick at toast while they do as they want.
i don't attempt to do anything in the mornings as my kids fight and scream if I'm not there with them. So I've totally chilled down our mornings. We don't have to be anywhere and it's hard work getting out of house early no matter how pre organised I get.
My kids are homies - they LOVE staying home. Dd oFten asks if we can stay home today. I have no problem with that! They r only little once.
Im not looking forward to the days where I have to rush around every morning for kinder work and what not. Ergghhh.

My DS has always been an early riser - At 2.7yrs he has a gro clock set at 5.30am and if he's awake before that he has to wait. I have always been up early by choice (horse related) but now it's not my choice I find it much harder to get going in the morning.
Totally off topic, sorry Op, @KatiesMum - I'm watching the giro as well - so fascinating :-)

I have to get up at 5.30am to get ready for work 4 days a week (it takes me more than an hour just to drive to work) and, on days when my DH flies back to work, it's 4.30am. I am not at all a morning person but I tend to wake up at that time on a weekend now. Stupid body clock.
I might just start thinking of it as training for when we do have kids now

Haven't read all the replies... only the op... but god DON'T feel guilty in the slightest. When my 2 were babies (13 months apart) and dh was working away... I had a mattress set up in the lounge room in front of the tv with a play pen around it. When mine woke up extra early or were up extra late I would lie with them on the mattress and know that if I fell asleep from exhaustion at least they were safe and entertained... whatever it takes and what ever works!!!

Don't feel guilty OP. I think most people use TV in this way to get through hard times.
If mine wake up super early I can usually avoid getting up with them as DH is up at 05:50 for work, leaves at 07:00 so he'll just get up and get ready sooner so I stay in bed til he leaves. It's rare either child is up before 0600 though. And weekends I get DH to get up too as I'm up 3-4 times with bub so need to recover!
