What Time Do Your Kids Wake Up?

Ah, the weekend. I count down to it all week and it can’t ever seem to come quickly enough for me. Two days where there is no school, excuse to be a little relaxed on the bedtime routines, and our weekends are not generally jam-packed with things to do.

Every Friday I get that surge of excitement that soon it will be Saturday. My husband is home and I can stay in my pj’s if I want to and no deadlines I need to attend to. I daydream about sleeping all night and even the blissful sleeping in.

There is only one problem — my kids wake up too early!

I have never been a morning person. I don’t think I will ever become a morning person which is evident by the fact I have yet to adequately adapt. Even after 6 years of this motherhood thing.  I am one of those people who will stay up until 2 am working, watching movies and enjoying talking to an adult for a few hours (since I’m around the kids all day). Then I regret the late night when at the crack of dawn one or more of the kids are knocking on my door asking for breakfast.

I have tried having my kids stay up later, playing high energy games during the day to super wear them out and I have even considered bribing them to sleep (hehe). Nothing can convince them to sleep longer then 7 am — and right now they are up before the sun even peeks out. I know this issue will flip when they get a bit older and I will be wondering how to get my kids to wake up for school on time — but right now — I really want me (cough) them to sleep at least until the sun gets up.

So I ask you fellow parents — what time do your kids wake up? Do they sleep in for you on the weekends?
