LOL Chrisite! I don't drink coffee...but sweetened tea w/ stevia!!! This is me from 5-10 YEP..you read it right...10 is when I am finally awake! I have some health issues but really I have always been that way!
I have one who is okay w/ whatever time he gets up. And one who has to sleep 11-12 hrs no matter what! Or he is very grouchy!! And he is the one who can't go to sleep early! So, he generally wakes up around 9-9:30 but last wk he didn't wake up until 10:30! I let him sleep thinking he may have been going through a growth spurt. Now he is back on his schedule!
I always think how nice it would be to finish school early. But this is what works best for us in our stage of life! And for me and my health. I do wake up early to cook b-fast for dh and see him off. I generally stay up to do things but sometimes if I have had a rough night,,aka no sleep..then I will get back to bed and doze.
I have to remember not to compare myself with other families because I get very upset w/ myself! This is what I have to do for us now..hopefully in the future I can be as peppy and "with it" as you gals!!
Also, the boys go to bed later because of spending some time w/ dad and outside time after dinner. Especially now that is light late. Then when they do come in it is time for clean up, reading or they may watch one 30 min show, or listen to a book on cd. So they go to bed around 9-9:30! I know ....late for a lot of people!! Last wk they stayed up until 10!!
We all have to do what fits our family!! What would I do if they had to go to PS?? LOL!
