I was in bed somewhere between 2-3:30. The girls were up at 5:00. I permitted it because this is only the second Christmas the girls have ever had. Their first was last year. with me. Mandatory nap time starts in 7 minutes.

I went to bed almost 1. Dh woke me up at 6, got back to sleep, then kids got up for stockings at 8. Can't complain about that. All good-the joy on the kids' face is great. Dh is sleeping now, and I'm tired, but caffeined up--and fighting a virus.... Not looking forward to travelling tomorrow.
If not today, maybe tomorrow...:mail:

I always feel out of the loop nowadays since my dd is 14 so I dont need to stay up all night putting toys together LOL and I dont have the kids that come jumping into the bed early in the morning to wake us up. So, I was in bed about 10:30pm and dd woke me up by just banging around in the kitchen at 7am :)

Although I do miss the joy of Santa, I don't miss the getting up at 6:00am now that both DS's are older (13 and 20). I went to bed at 11:30 and and got up at 8. Then spent the remainder of the day in the kitchen cooking!

I went to bed at 1:30, DS got up sometime between 7:30 and 8 and curled up on the couch watching cartoons loudly. I asked him if Santa had been to our house and he said no so I told him he better look at the tree. Didn't take long for him to start begging to open presents :)

We went to bed around 1130-12, woke up at 7 wondering why the house was so quiet! DD was awake, but sitting in bed with a :D on her face. DS was kind of groggy, but ready to see if Santa brought his big tractor toy. I'm sure if I give it few years, they'll be getting up earlier! I remember negotiating alarm times with my mom & brothers when I was a kid...I think we did 5am or something one year!

I slept in my niece's room this year (home for the holidays) and was expecting her to wake me up super early. I'm so glad that she slept in until 7 :D
