I hate mornings!

I'm not a morning person......I've come to the conclusion never will be!!

When I was a kid I used to get up at 5am in the summer to go and ride my horses before school....I don't know when it happened but I started sleeping later and later....I remember being a teenager and on a Sunday not getting up until 2/3pm...

People said 'Ohh when you have kid's you'll get used to getting up on a morning....hahaha! I tried to believe them....but getting used to mornings never happened!!

I have been getting up most mornings for the last 6 years since Becky started full time school at about 7am/7.30am and I'm still not used to it!! On the weekends I class 8am a lie in because the kids won't sleep It's not that I go to bed late....Most nights I'm in bed by about 11pm....Sometime on a weekend it may be midnight...

Each morning my alarm goes off at 7am....I hit the snooze button....I try to convince myself 10 minutes of additional sleep will somehow make me less tired....Then I'll have 10 more minutes....Each time I hit the snooze button I cross off one thing I was supposed to do to get ready but no longer have time for....Breakfast for myself, putting make up on, straightening my hair, etc....One good thing is as bad as I am on a morning the girls are never late for school!!

I'm fine once I'm up though.....Well by the time I get the kids to school and have a couple of cups of coffee & watched Jeremy Kyle I am!!

  1. Lol this sounds so much like me!!! I also lay there mentally crossing things off my to do list for the sake of 10 more mins!!

  2. I am a morning person i wake up to a 5am alarm everyday..but i must admit i do look forward to my mini lie in's at the weekend lol xx

  3. I love that cartoon :) I used to be a morning person too but I cherish every single extra Z now!

  4. I'm a morning person and being at home with the kids means I can get up at 6.30-7am which is OK as I used to be up at 6am for work. The odd 'til 8am weekend lie-in would be nice, though ;-)

  5. Sounds so familiar - I hate mornings and will never enjoy getting up early!

  6. I completely agree with this post! I am not in the least a morning person and my daughter wakes every morning before 6. I stumble through the first few hours of the day before waking up properly. popping over from #pocolo

  7. Ha, I had to be up by 6.30/7 for work and now my alarm goes off at 6.00 to get myself and everyone else up and out for school... I hit the snooze button at least twice every morning! And I love not setting it at all at the weekends (even though the wee girl will wake at 6.30 anyway...!). Once I'm up, I'm up, but how I would love to stay in bed :)

  8. Sounds like I could of written this! Lol i hate mornings too!! Hate doing the school run!

  9. I've always been a morning person, and having kids has just cemented it! I do have to be in bed by 9pm everynight though like a Nan!!

  10. I hate mornings too I am always after five minutes more!
