    Morning Person or Night Owl

    What time of day are you the most functional? Do you maintain a routine? If you do shift work, how do you handle it? How are you if you wake up too soon? Is your family in sync?

    Re: Morning Person or Night Owl

    Once i have a lil coffee, I think I am a morning person. I have gotten used to being at work early (6am) and waiting on my breakfast crowd....I usually start to be alil tired around 2 until i get my second wind if one is drifting in my direction that day lol. I do have a pretty consistent routine tho.

    Morning person.  I've never been a late sleeper, although I can stay up if I need/want to, as long as I make up the missed sleep the next night.

     I'm a total night owl, but if I'm not up by 9:00 a.m. on weekends/day's off I wake up in a bad mood because I feel my day is wasted lol.

    Morning Person---I'm up past my bedtime right now! I get up at 6 a.m. every day. I have a routine for weekdays and another for weekends. I'm good to go until around noon and then I start to slow down. On Sundays I can get a 2 hour nap since DD still takes naps. During her Saturday nap I'm usually resting on the couch after running around all morning cleaning house. By 9 p.m. I'm ready to fall over and go to bed when DD is put to bed. DH, on the other hand, is a night owl. He likes to stay up until midnight or 1 a.m. but hates to get out of bed in the morning. He can sleep until 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays. He gets up at 8:15 a.m. on Sundays. He has to get up at 6:20 a.m. on weekdays and it about kills him! DD is three years old and I see that she's more like her daddy because she likes to stay up late. I usually put her to bed around 9 p.m. since she gets a two hour nap during the day. Sometimes she'll lay there for a couple hours just rolling around because she's not ready to go to sleep! I wake her up at 7 a.m. during the week, 8 a.m. on Sundays, and whenever on Saturdays, depending on what's on the agenda for the day. She needs time to stretch out, then she'll come upstairs and lay around for a few minutes before she's ready to get going. Some Saturdays I don't know how long she's been awake when I go to get her up. She'll be laying there looking around and I can tell she's been awake a while. She won't yell to us that she's awake and wants to get up and she won't get out of the bed until you tell her it's time to wake up!! At least she's not grouchy when she wakes up. DH is!

    I am a morning person and so are all the people still living in the same home as me. Our night owl moved out already.

    I am a morning person but dh is a night owl.  I am usually in bed no later than 11.00 and he usually stays up until the wee morning hours on his days off but he works night so that probably has something to do with it.
