What time do your Dec babies go to bed?
If family parties/get-togethers overlap that bedtime by a LOT, do you skip? Go and put them to bed there? Just let them stay up and be a grump?
Nate is asleep by 6:30 every night. He gets up about 6:30/7:00 (on days we don't have school - up at 5:30 during the week.) If he doesn't sleep, he's an absolute grouch. MIL has planned Christmas Eve present opening and dinner to begin at 6:00, which I'm sure is normal for normal people. The neices are 10 and 11 years old and don't go to bed until late. But all the other kiddos in the family are little and are in bed by 7:00/8:00. The others have a good hour drive to get there. I guess I'm just bummed because my family went out of their way to make sure they scheduled events around the little kids in the family and their nap and bedtimes. I really appreciated it. MIL has changed the date and time of their xmas celebration four times now in the past week. I know we won't end up eating until almost 7:00 and she'll want to open presents at 9:00. Then we have to come home and do the Santa thing at our own house, which includes assembling a play kitchen. I love our family, but sometimes it's inconvenient to love them.
