What woke you? I got woken at 5.30 by neighbour's dog barking. Grrrrr!

10 week old DS. I love him dearly but I love sleep too hmm

I had a weird dream which unsettled me. Need to either get up and do something or go to sleep.

Because it's the first weekend that I haven't had to go to work for weeks, my DH has gone away for the weekend, but (UN)thoughtfully left the alarm set on its usual setting. GRRr too!

8 month old woke up, although 6 is a lie in so I'm not complaining.

Ds2 needs feeding. Ds1 will wake up soon. Need coffee so badly right now.

Sangelina Sun 04-May-14 06:10:49

Feeding. Again. yawn

Because I don't need much sleep. I have already unloaded the dishwasher and made a lovely mug of freshly ground coffee. The sun is shining and I am looking forward to the rest of the day.
We had our May bank holiday here on Thursday, so it is back to work tomorrow!

Sorry about the dog. Seven month old DS here. He's actually asleep, but slept through his second night feed for the first time and I woke up thinking something was wrong...

It's my birthday and I'm excited gringringrin

Happy birthday mutton!
Last night Husband was working (at home) kids in bed so decided to watch tv in bed at about 8.30, fell asleep straight away so now wide awake.

Happy birthday mutton!!!

I'm up as I have to go to work. Both days this weekend and I'm knackered!

Germgirl Sun 04-May-14 06:23:40

Been awake all night. In fact I've been awake since 5am yesterday. I'm on a night shift which ends at 8.15. Got to go home, take the cat to the Cattery at 9.30 and then home to my lovely bed for some sleeeeep!
Happy Birthday Mutton. Have a brilliant day smile

I was poas and watching my bfp getting darker every day grin I can't go back to sleep as I'm excited!

AndyWarholsBanana Sun 04-May-14 06:24:39

DS2 insisted on getting up at 5.45am.

I'm going to work sad

LtEveDallas Sun 04-May-14 06:24:54

Happy birthday Mutton Cadet.

I was up at 5, like every morning. My glass back means staying in bed more that 6 hours is an impossibility. At least it's a lovely bright day.

ThreeBecameFour Sun 04-May-14 06:25:37

Have been awake on a off since 1am due to 3yo and 8mo dc's....zzzzz....

Happy Birthday Mutton

Congratulations Ditzy!

PastaandCheese Sun 04-May-14 06:25:44

DS woke at 5.50 for a feed and now I can hear DD stirring so there is no point going back to bed.

Horsemad Sun 04-May-14 06:26:13

Happy Birthday Mutton!

Dog has stopped but I won't be able to get back to sleep.

Babies are a lovely reason to be up early, loved the 4am feeds with my summer baby - less so with the winter one!!

Shatteredmamma1 Sun 04-May-14 06:26:38

grin thanks ditzy!!

Happy birthday mutton!!!

6am wake up from DS here, that's not too bad I was just at the wrong stage of sleep cycle so feeling very tired!! Baby now next to me in bed with toys pre proper getting up grin

Horsemad Sun 04-May-14 06:28:08

Congrats Ditzy!

AddictedtoCrunchies Sun 04-May-14 06:29:42

I'm running a half marathon and being picked up at 6.50. Just eating a mahoosive bowl of porridge for energy and drinking tea brewgrin

I am 'sleep training' my 9yr old with ASD and though he is falling to sleep quicker he's waking earlier and earlier.
