So woke up bang on 6.00am

DS normally sleeps until 7-7.30

I have had coffee. Texted my sister in Germany.  Had more coffee and want everyone to wake up.

Going to wake up DH in 10 mins and then go and wake DS together.

But hurry up already!!!!!

I woke up 5am here (but I am in Qld) and I am patiently waiting.

I had to wake up before my preschooler because we rang Santa last night to tell him to leave the presents outside the front door (and so I am already awake and took them inside).

Now where is everyone... I have also had two coffees and am looking forward to some present opening...  laugh.gif

Oldest child awake at 5.15am (so we were too), youngest child still asleep and it is almost 7am.  Most mornings he is awake by 6am!

DS1 is doing so well - bless him, he must be fit to burst!

I had a sh**t night' sleep so I'd be happy to still be snoozing!

DH decided if he was awake at 5:00 then so was everyone else, I swear he's worse than the kids.

Yes. DH woke me with his snoring at 6.00am, so I've been awake for the last hour.

At least with a big day ahead the kids will have a decent sleep behind them.

Merry christmas.

DD and I are up (as normal), just waiting on DH (as normal) ! DD is less than 12 months so Christmas morning isn't a big deal yet anyway

Yep still waiting. Dog's been barking, I wrapped a forgotten present, flushed the loo and they are still asleep!!!

4 month old DD and DH and I are up. Had very little sleep so hitting the caffeine!
6.5yo and almost 5yo yet to wake. I thought the 5yo would have bounced out long ago, though it's only 6:30 here.
Hurry up boys! I wanna play skylanders!

#16 HeroOfCanton

Posted 25 December 2012 - 06:17 AM

Yep! I've had a shower, done my hair & makeup and had a coffee, put the baby back to bed and DD & DH just walked up the hall.

Would it be the worst parenting ever to let DD kpeall her presses while DS sleeps again...? unsure.gif

#17 Who is me

Posted 25 December 2012 - 06:23 AM

Baby DD and I are up, waiting for DS and DH. I am enjoying a peaceful cup of tea and some cinnamon toast before the madness begins!

I'm so excited! I love giving presents!

#18 Pssst...

Posted 25 December 2012 - 06:27 AM

DD2 started stirring just after 6 so I got up and she decided to go back to sleep - but I was already wide awake! So I've showered, dressed, done hair and make up. DD1 and DH are awake but still in bed. Will finish feeding baby and then the fun can begin!

Have a lovely day everyone!

My baby DD has gone back to bed with DH. If the boys get up I'm letting them at least open their stockings and the new outfits. DD has already been in her new exersaucer and sucked on her taggie cube!
