to go to bed at 10pm when I am a fully grown adult

in good health atm, who will not have to get up before 7am?

Just seems incredibly childish to me. Bed at 10am is for people who have to get up early or who will have to deal with babies during the night.

10am is way to early for a perfectly healthy fully functioning grown up. Isn't it?

10 pm is my usual bedtime, I am only up now because we have been to the pub, will be toddling up soon.

I quite often go earlier, I don't think it's childish, I need my sleep.

That's my usual bedtime tbh.

I go to bed at 10am on a fairly regular basis (I then get up at 5pm and leave for work at 8.30pm). Tonight I'm in bed by 10pm so I can get up for 6am.

10pm is fine to go to bed. I love going to bed early! I basically love being asleep grin

I aim to be in bed by 10 normally because DP has to be up at 6 and his alarm wakes me up. I like my sleep!

BIWI Sun 23-Jun-13 22:20:18

YANBU at all. But is someone telling you that you are?

Grignard Sun 23-Jun-13 22:23:03

No? I often go to bed before 10 pm - so does DH. I'm obviously having a rare late grown-up night tonight though...

Goldrill Sun 23-Jun-13 22:36:26

Ohhhh. DD is 8 months old and not yet got the hang of sleeping anywhere but next to me. I long for the day I can go to bed at ten and read for an hour, preferably with the promise I won't be woken up again before 7.
God, there might even be nooky one day!

I go around 11.pm.. more like 11.30pm before I am actually laying down to go to sleep.

I cherish my evenings, I get 2 hours without any children and feel like it's a waste going to bed.

I am always tired though and probably should go to sleep earlier.

Nope, YADNBU. My alarm goes off at 6. Some nights I go out stay up till 1ish, others I'm in bed by 8:30-9ish. I rarely sleep before 11, but I love my horrifically expensive bed, so if I've just changed the sheets and there's a good book/programme on tv, I'll go to bed super early... I love being a grown up! grin

No, it's not childish to go to bed at 10pm - why do you ask?

zoobaby Sun 23-Jun-13 23:00:59

Oh how I truly lament the loss of my 10pm bedtime and 7am wake-up! I can only hope that DS conforms one day grin

If DP is working away on a Mon or Tues, I go to bed at 9pm. It's lovely. Bed, my book and the cat.

Last Sunday I went to bed at 9.30pm, but this was a combinatiion of having had a late party night the night before and also expecting the electric meter to run out any minute. I am generally a night person who would much rather stay up till 2am and get up around 9.30, so most nights I go to bed around midnight because I have to get up at 7.40.

MrsPnut Sun 23-Jun-13 23:19:02

10pm is our usual bed time, but we do get up at 6 during the week. I am well known for having at least one night a week where I go to bed at about 7pm. I don't go straight to sleep but like to be up there with my stuff around me chilling out.
