GTKY

Are you a night owl or an early bird?

I was always a night owl before DD. I preferred to stay up late and sleep in. I used to even make my college schedules so that I could sleep in when possible. Since DD my internal clock has totally shifted. I'm typically up by 6 and ready for bed by 9:30-10.

  • I was a night owl. I still wish I could sleep in. DS2 has been waking up at 530 lately, so no sleeping in for me. H was out of town last week and I went to bed at 830 one night.

    I used to be a huge night owl. I always got so much done at night. Not so much now. By 9pm I'm ready for bed.

    But even more I miss sleeping in. I don't want to even admit how late we used to sleep in on weekends pre baby.

  • I am an early bird. I get made fun of a lot for always going to bed so early haha. The thing is, if I stay up until 1am I still wake up by 8am. I don't know how to sleep in. I could lie in bed til 10am pre baby but I could never sleep until then no matter how late I went to bed.
    Eta: by early bird I mean 8 am on weekends and 7 am on weekdays. Anything earlier is way too early!

  • I always thought I was neither! I love sleep too much. Before baby I would probably be asleep by midnight and up around 8 or 9 ideally, but now bedtime is usually 10:30 and we're up around 6:30 or 7. If left on his own DH is definitely a night owl and I have a tough time getting him up in the mornings. It really annoys me sometimes!

    Lol I don't think of 7 or 8 as an early bird! Early botd is people who get up and around at 4,5, or 6.

    7 or 8 is sleeping in in our world. In college I was the typical night owl but in college that's when the fun is. I've been a momma for almost nine year so since then I'd say I'm neither I'd be happy going to bed around 10 or 11 and getting up at 7 or 8. Unfourntly with kids it's more like pass out on the couch at 9 go to be at 11 get up at 12, 2, 4 and up for the day at 6.

    My dad always gets up at 5am even on weekends. He thinks anything later is wasting the day away. He doesn't understand why people wouldn't want to see the sun rise. I believe if it is dark you should be sleeping. If the sun isn't awake I shouldn't be either! Ha!

  • Night owl, which totally backfires on me like last night when lo feel asleep early I stayed up till 11:30, he woke at midnight and didn't get sleepy till 2, then woke at 5, I managed to nurse him to sleep and we woke foot the day at 8:41 and I feel like I was hit by a truck.
  • I used to be a night owl.  I worked the late shifts and went out drinking after.  DS has definitely changed this.  I'm up for the day at 5:30am and down for the count by 9:30/10.
