Some days I'll get up earlier than others...7am is pretty much the earliest I'm willing to get out of bed.
My SO gets up and leaves for work by around 7:40 so he takes care of their needs until he leaves, so I can sleep.
Ever so often the kids don't come and get me after he leaves so I sleep even longer.
Did I mention that I am _not_ a morning person??
I see kids outside waiting for their school buses at 7am and I can't imagine having to get everyone ready so early! LOL!
HOw late do we stay up? Usually DD1 goes to bed around 9:30pm. DD2... we don't do schedules for the baby, so whenever she's tired she can be found on my lap while I am naking. I go to sleep really late most night since the only time I can do my web design for clients is when everyone is asleep. I usually crawl into bed around 2 to 3am.
Dh is up at 5:20 and out the door by 6:20am. My alarm is set for 8:20am. But I don't get up til 10am.
The kids get up anywhere from 9-10:30am.
6 yr old DD gets up anytime from 6:30 to 8
3 yrold DS will sleep till 11 some days, others he's up as early as 8
I get up anywhere from 6:30 to 8 at the latest.
DS had an appointment this morning at 9; I woke up at 7:45, got vitamins set up in time for DD to come down and drink hers. By the time I went back upstairs DS was actually awake much to my relief. We showered and got out of the house by 8:45.
DS was sleeping tonight by 6 since he didn't get a nap today. He needs 14 hours of sleep.
If my kids went to school they would never see their father!
I am a night owl and it's the only alone time I get so I stay up until the wee hours and then I sleep in with dd.
she has always needed a lot of sleep and that was actually one of the deciding factors when we chose to start hs'ing
some days we sleep until 12 or 12:30

Do you find yourself needing some rest time later in the day? I think if I consistently got up everyday at 6am, I would tire out by noon, esp. in the gray/rainy/cold winter SO nice for napping!! I love naps
Unfortunately the day starts early here. I am a night owl, that is my natural rhythm and if left to my own devices I would probably go to bed around 2-3 am and get up around 12-1 pm. That is what I always did when I didn't have anything to do. Unfortunately I still have days where I just cannot go to sleep until 2 am and then I have to get up early and that sucks. Right now DH is home full time until January so it is nice I am getting to sleep until 9:30 am or so. The baby wakes up between 6-7 am (torture!) and DH gets up with her. The older two wake up usually around 7-7:30 am. Baby goes to bed at 6 pm and the older two are in bed at 7:30 pm. I sooooo look forward to the teenage years when the kids want to sleep until noon because I will be right there with them!
My dh loves to make fun of me when I have to set the alarm to wake up for 9am. What a life you have, he says.:
