one thing i keep hearing is dont let your child sleep in during the weekends because it will mess up their routine. sleep routine. its not just now but i recall my parents waking me up during the weekends when i was elementary age myself yeeeeears ago.
do you think that's true?
i've been watching the sleep routines of quite a few kids since it defines when they come over to play or have a sleepover.
so this week we have the whole week off. just like i have to bug dd to get up none of the kids are out yet. yet on the weekend they are out by 7 am. i can hear them outside playing at SEVEN in the morning.
i find dd does that too. she has 2 sleep routines (is that the right word?!!) one for the week when she can barely wake up at 6:30 and one for the weekend when she is wide awake at 6:30 - always without fail unless she is sick or has been up all night reading.
summer is a whole different story. dd is a night owl and goes back to being a night owl in summer.
i never thought about this much till this morning when its past 9 and i dont hear kids outside at all (not that they are supper loud, but i hear the basketball, bicycle). dd is still fast asleep. yet this last weekend they were out by 7 am including dd. most of the kids in my neighborhood are 3rd grade to high school age.
anyways do you notice the same?
