RQOTD --Friday

Okay, here is the Randomness of the day --

If it was NOT for kids or work or any other obligations, would you be a morning person or night owl. What would your ideal time to sleep/wake.

Again, no kids, no work, no nothing....just your natural rhythm

I am a total night owl. In college, when I didn't have classes, I would stay up to 2 or 3 and sleep till around 11. Even in law school, when I met DH, he would take Tiff to school and I would stay up late studying and sleep as late as I could. I had such a rude awakening when I started working.

When I first got Tiff as a foster child, I had SUCH a hard time cause her natural rhythm has always been an early bird. She would be up and perky at 5 am --she still does that!

Zayden is going to be an early bird too Sad

Me too! That is exactly why I work nights. I'd rather see 5am from staying up all night, than having to wake to an alarm.

I used to be an early bird, get up early start the day and get things done, now since the kids I'm up way to late and still up too early but not even close to happy about it like I used to be before kids.

I am a total night owl--I much prefer to go to bed between 11 and 1. But, even when I do that, I still up and out of bed by 7am. So I guess I'm both a night owl and an early bird. Sad I LOVE to sleep, but just can't very well. I think the latest I've slept in in the last 5 or 6 years was maybe 8am?
Noah has just recently started sleeping in (since we moved to our new house in Sept) and is up between 7 and 7:30. It's been wonderful, but I still beat him in waking up--grrr!

NIGHT OWL! I hate mornings. As it is I stay up until midnight most nights and sometimes later, even though I'm so tired in the morning. I just hate going to bed early. I would prefer to stay up until 1 or 2am and sleep until 9 or 10am. I specifically tried to train Sophia to be a late sleeper but no luck. She stayed up until almost 11pm on Saturday night and was up at 8am on Sunday. And 8am is seriously sleeping in for her.

ETA: I don't like to sleep past 9 or so because I feel crappy if I do. Like I've wasted half the day or something?

It seems that the later Zayden stays up, the earlier he wakes up, and the grumpier he is during the day. How is that fair?
