Are you an Early Bird or a Night Owl?

  I have always been a Night Owl, thru & thru.  I hate to get up early & love to stay up late!  Any outings, activities, or appointments are always scheduled in the afternoons whenever possible.  Even our 4 yr. old is on the afternoon schedule at school- she's in the Young 4's p.m. class.  We don't do mornings at this house!

Though it isn't always easy with a baby, toddler, & preschooler since they like to wake up whenever.  So there are times I end up being a Night Owl and then an Early Bird the very next morning... grrr!  Most of the time though the kids are on our schedule and tend to stay up slightly later & sleep in 'til about 10 am or so.  Except for the baby who generally wakes up at 8am but then after feeding goes right back to sleep.  Ah, a sleeping baby is a beautiful baby!  

But this brings up a terrifying thought about when our oldest starts going to school all day.  What are we going to do?  How are we going to get her to school in the morning?  We are going to have to completely switch our routine around.  I'm not sure it can be done... and trust me, if you knew us, you'd probably agree (we're habitually late for everything!).

I think I see in our daughter's future multiple late & tardy passes and us having to explain to the teacher & principal why she doesn't make it to school on time.  GULP!!  Thankfully this won't be starting this fall, as Kindergarten is a half day too (thank you Jesus!), so she'll be on the afternoon schedule again.  And that leaves us a year & a half to get our you-know-what together!

I would love to be a night owl...but since my husband and kids go to bed somewhat early I do too...My 8 mo old still gets up at night half the time too, which leaves me so tired in the morning so I'm trying to squeeze in the sleep when I can. Once my kids sleep later though, I think I will too!! I miss sleep!!

I am totally a night owl and it's weird because I used to always be an early bird. Thankfully now my {almost} 3 year old sleeps in til 8:30 or 9 daily.

Oh my gosh...I could've written this post right along with you!!

Night Owl here...with Night Owlette's in training!! (Is that what they call baby owls...owlettes???)

Mornings stink...I see my kiddos and hubby off in the morning, and right back to bed I go, until the little ones wake me up!

Sheesh, maybe if I should try to get to bed before 1 am???
