I usually get up at 3 or 4 am because I have to prepare things for kids to school. It is really hard when you have kids whoa re in school. You have to get them up early too and help them prepare for school. I know some working parents are that too. And week ends are the best days to sleep as we want. how about you? how early you are to get up everyday?

I get up at about 6:30 during the week to get ready. On the weekends I am up by 7am most of the time I can't sleep in yet my daughter is only 3 and she doesn't sleep past 7 very often. So right now that is my schedule I long for the days that I can sleep in again. When she is in school we will have to get up about the same time as we do now. I run an in home daycare and my first child gets her at 7am. Pretty much I get up and dressed and my daughter up and dressed before then. We shower the night before. I really am not a morning person so this works best for me.

From last 3 years I haven't seen how the early morning look like!!! The simple reason being my job demands me to work late night. Hence it is like dream come true. Even during the holidays, I am too scared to change my daily habit and will be awake whole night just to go to bed around 5 in the morning.

I am not an early bird as you are but I sleep very late like 2 or 3 in the morning. I usually wake up at 9 or 10 am already and prepare things for the day. I understand about parents had to wake up for kids or partners for work and other things, usually who rests also in the night early, or am I wrong. Its always good waking up early refreshed, if I don't sleep that late though I wake up at 4 in the morning and take a jog for an exercise.

Well, I have no choice. Even if I sleep late at night I still have to wake up early to prepare things for the kids. You are right!! when you have kids and a partner who is working, you really have to wake up early.

When I was still a nursing student, I used to wake up as early as 3am to prepare for my 6am shift at the hospital. I wake up really early because I still have to travel an hour to get to the hospital.

You are a nurse. That is great. Nurse is a most careful person and the work for nurse is really hard. Nurse have to be ready whenever necessary. So nurse is really great. Which country are you from?

Well, to me I have to wake up at 7 to prepare lunch for hubby as he goes to work at 8. Sometimes when he is not working, I will get up at 8 or 9 because I am aslo sleeping very late at night because of my online writing. Night time is my perfect time to write.

Hope I could write at night but every time I will hold a pen and a paper, I feel sleepy so I end up sleeping instead of writing so I just wake up early to write for my websites.

well, sometimes I feel sleepy too but I will stop and watch movies to wake me up when I am sleepy then a few minutes after when I am back to my normal senses to write, I will go back writing again. Sometimes I set a goal for myself in a day of how much I can write so that I will be motivated to do it. Early in the morning is too cold for me to wake up and do my writing.

You really wake up so early. I wake up at about 7:25am. Since nowadays my husband brings our child to school everyday. So I am able to sleep a longer time. Sometimes I will get up at 8am. I love China

We raised three very active boys. I always thought about it the other way around! School days was a normal wake up and non school days were sleep in days, if the boys did. If we went to bed at 10pm we would get 8 hours of sleep when we had to be up by 6

Yes it is hard. I remember those days...ahh..painful. I work nights and would get a couple of hours sleep and have to wake up and get the kids off to school. I still automatically wake up early in the morning but not at 4 or 5. Maybe 6 or 7. I have my 16 yr old still here and for the most part she gets herself up and going. still she has her moments. I get up and make sure she is up and getting ready and then I go back to bed for another hour or so. I remember sitting here drinking like 6 cups of coffee just to get moving. So glad things have slowed down a bit.

Oh that's good for you that your daughter is old enough to take care for herself. Mine are just graders and they need my assistance in everything before going to school.

During days off I wake up around 7-8 in the morning, but after eating breakfast and maybe browsing the internet, I again sleep. Whenever I have work, I wake up in the evening because I'm in the night shift.

You really a great mother. When I was a kid, my mother also treat us like this, she woke up very early in the morning, she'll awake us and prepared things for us to school. She never say any tired. She is a great mother like you. Now, I wait up myself at 7am, normally my mobile phone alarm clock will awake me on time. After that, I need to prepare to go for work. My office hour start on 8am. But, I always late, because I still in sleep even the alarm clock has ring up, I lazy to wake up. So, I always rush to work every morning.

wow early riser i am a mother too but then i cant wake up that early lol i usually wake up at 6 in the morning, but i am a fast mover so i get things done right away. plus i am usually still awake as late as 1 am because i have a toddler and at times he still asks for milk late at night plus he sometimes have tantrums too. I wake up at 6 in time to cook for breakfast, which is usually eggs or hotdogs or corned beef easy to prepare hehehe and then prepare my daughter's food for school and my husband's as well. their clothings are usually prepared at night so i dont do it the morning and saves time :D and we get out of the house at 7:30, so we are all not late hahaha my daughter, lucky for me is easy to wake up in the morning i guess she got used to it already she is in Grade 1 now. :D

wow!! you wake up early for the dogs? Here in the Philippines our dogs will take care of themselves. We don't have to worry about them. Dogs here are not as special like humans. Well, that's what it is in my country.

I am a college student and unfortunately, my institution is quite a distance aways from where i live. It is simply exhausting for me but soon after 2 years and now i am finally in year 3, i have gotten used to it. Now, almost all my classes start at 8 am in the morning which means i have to get up at around 5 am. I think you may have a harder time because you have to take care of your kids, but come weekends, it will be like the happiest 2 days of your weeks isn't it? haha. :)

It depends on my work schedule for the day. If we are require to go early into our site of work well then I need to wake up early and prepare myself before to go. If I am in my family and i need to travel long so I need to wake up also early for early travel to go to work. Because my trip is time consuming coz of traffic due to renovation of the super highway. The 45 mins or less than that trips spending of almost two to three hours. So waking up early depends on my work sched and availability. Thank you.

That is the most common reasons also, to beat the traffic you have to wake up early or else you will belate due to traffic.
