oh that would be awesome!

the sun is actually comming up here... a friend of mine once said that witnessing the sunrise is more special/beautiful because less people see it.

Hey there, glad to see I'm not the ONLY mom up at 3 AM without the excuse of a hungry newborn! My other momma friends think I'm nuts. But ya know, this is my ME time. No responsibilities, family's in bed, it's quiet and uninterrupted.

I've got church in about seven hours though, so I guess I should get to bed!

I'm not so much of a night owl, but I live in a timezone where mostly I'm online when it's the middle of the night for most MDCers, so i'm around to chat, but only with insomniacs

I've always been a nightowl. Even now that I have a few more things to do in the am I find myself up late and then taking a nap. I'm pregnant with my first, and everyone says I'll change my ways. But I just can't seem to make a habit of going to bed before 10-11 at the VERY earliest, ya know? Even if I've been away since early am I just end up taking a nap in the afternoon and repeating the pattern.

I've been an insomniac for much of my life. When I'm pregnant or ill (as now) I sleep a lot more than at other times. That said, I still usually require less sleep than anyone else I know except possibly my brother.

When we were kids, my brother and I used to get up in the middle of the night and make tea. We'd then do random weird projects, like program the Commodore 64 in Basic.

Poxybat-- your post made me giggle a bit because "lailah" (lie-lah) is actually Hebrew for "night." Weird, huh?

I've always been a night owl. Lately, it's even worse though. I used to make it to bed around 2 or 3am, but I'm pregnant with baby #3 and I have a very bad cold, so that ain't happening. It's 4:23, it's hot and stuffy, I have super acid reflux and I am sitting in bed with the laptop...dh is sleeping beside me. I found myself reading threads from 2005 a short while ago.

Yay another nightcrawler thread!

Present.: I was afraid the new baby would be a day child and I'd have to attempt to drag the 7yo to the light side. :But we got lucky; newcritter fits right in.

What's everyone up to tonight?

I started a Yahoo! Group looking for folks who are interested in starting a local Earth Scouts Troop. I love the internet.

I'm also watching a Netflix disc and playing games on Facebook. I *should* be reading, but i don't wanna roll my behind out of bed. I'm not sleeping well, but I'm comfortable, damn it!

All of my kids are asleep. I like them this way. I'll have to get up early when the baby's hungry, and start the school day with the boy. It's all good, though; I've never been a huge sleeper.

eternal night owl who was able to get number one to sleep late but then two and three came back to back and now staying up for my precious me time means less and less sleep. I tend to crash every three days and fall asleep with my wee ones and recharge ( like 10 hours of sleep)so I can go another three with maybe 5 or 6. I think ten years of nursing and family bed have made less sleep and being tired normal
so hello glad to join the tribe

Heh, stormborn. If Bear had been a girl, I wanted to name him Daenerys. Mike was... not exactly in favor. But it's such a cool name!

It would have been her middle name. I was SO close to getting Ender for Bear's middle name, too. *sigh*

That would be great! I'd settle for a midnight playdate though. Anyone want to move in next door?:
