QOTD 6/27

Are you a morning person or night owl?

I'm definitely more of a morning person. I've never been able to stay up very late, I get so tired and grumpy!

A little of both. I definitely cannot sleep in late (past like 8 in the morning, and usually I'm up by about 7 and that feels comfortable), but I have been known to stay up late reading e-mails, or working on a project (sometimes midnight or 1). My "usual" schedule is to fall asleep sometime around 10:30 and wake up around 7 though. I don't feel like either of those times is particularly late or early.

I need so much sleep (especially now) that I can't be either. I've been going to bed at 9:30-10 with Matan the past few nights, but he's been waking up at 5:30 and I'm a zombie still at that time. If I could sleep a bit better during the night, I can happily wake up at 6:30 - but I haven't done that since becoming pregnant with M.

Neither. I usually wake at 4am when Jon's alarm goes off and watch a little tv then go back to sleep until around 9. At night, Im exhausted by 9 but usually can't fall asleep for hours. But I'm not up being productive, I'm just in bed.

I'm more of a night person typically but I'm trying to adjust that. I'd love to be a morning person...I think it's much more productive and a better fit for life with kids. I can easily sleep until 9 or 10 on a Saturday when I'm working during the week but I hate to b/c it feels like the day is over before you get started.

Right now just trying to be out of bed by 8:30 or 9. DH works early so I'm here with all 3 by myself until around lunchtime. The last few days have been the boys going down around 10:30 or 11. I can't seem to get to sleep before 12 or 1 by the time I get myself ready for bed and nurse a baby a couple of times. It seems she likes to eat again by the time I get the boys in bed and sometimes again after I get myself ready and in bed.

Night owl, tho I'm not USUALY crabby in either. This has changed and has some exceptions at the moment. The only time I'm usually crabby is when I first fall asleep and I'm waken up by someone other than my children lol, then u better watch out.

Definitely a night owl! I am not a morning person. If my kids would let me, I would sleep all morning!
