I was up at 12:30 am to settle dd who couldn't sleep through excitement.
Then she came in at 6 wanting to open her presents. Got in with us, and then went back to sleep for a couple of hours. Finally up at 7:45.

So I am well rested this fine Christmas morning ( not)

How about you?

Silly, I hope you are OK.

Do post elsewhere. He can't fight you over CSA. He has to fight CSA. grin That is the beauty of it.

I cracked an eyelid at 9am and mentioned to DH that DD (aged 12) must have woken up because we could hear her playing her new guitar. Sometimes the teen years don't seem so bad. No more 6am hysteria. grin

DramaAlpaca Wed 25-Dec-13 17:24:04

We dragged the last teenager out of bed at 11am fgrin. It made a nice change from the 6am starts we used to have when they were small.

SillyOldHector - hope you are OK.

Wen't to bed at 9am and woke up about half an hour ago.

DH woke me up at 6. I then tried to go back to sleep until DS2 got up at 7.45. DS1 was also waiting for him. He woke with a loud shout of 'I need a wee wee' and then asked, 'is it Christmas morning?'. He was delighted when we said yes.

redundantandbitter Wed 25-Dec-13 16:56:00

sillyoldhector are you still hiding upstairs? Hope he's gone to count his money and you can relax and enjoy your Dc's

GampyWabbit Wed 25-Dec-13 15:49:28

Amazingly dcs (2,6,10) only woke at 6.45am! Present opening commenced at 7am! Pretty impressed really grin!

My ex-p is downstairs and i'm upstairs at the moment. He won't go and is making the day unbearable just by his presence.
I might need to post later about my situation for some advice. He just told me he's going to fight me over csa payments. Apparently he can't afford what he will have to pay on a GP's salary hmm
He's obsessed with money and financially controlling. We've been together 15 years, house and mortgage is in his name and as we never married (he constantly avoided it) i'm entitled to nothing. I've been such a naive fool, how could i have put the dc and myself in such a vulnerable position.
I worked on and off over the years but as he worked away i did all the childcare and our agreement was that he earned and i was a sahm.
Dc and i are moving out soon as we have no choice. I can't afford this house.
I need to call csa and women's aid again and get some more advice.

What on earth does he hope to gain by putting us through this agony. I'll be well rid but it doesn't make it any less painful. I feel dreadful for my dcsad

9.30 here ... domestic goddess stuff done...turkey in oven and now sitting with a ciggy and G&T grin watching VERY old Top of the Pops!

D0oinMeCleanin Wed 25-Dec-13 13:25:26

10:20am grin They were sooo excited they didn't get to sleep until gone 1am shock Still it gave us a lie in. My children don't do getting up when it's still dark [smug]

scripsi Wed 25-Dec-13 13:23:26

5am here, painful

wontletmesignin Wed 25-Dec-13 13:18:52

8am when i dragged myself out of bed. Oops

wontletmesignin Wed 25-Dec-13 13:18:02

Went to bed at 2am. Kids woke up at 2:15. Talking repeatedly - so me repeatedly reminding them they need to sleep for santa.

3.45 i think they finally slept.

It was about i when i finally managed to drag myself out of bed.

I am so tired right now. But the kids are happy. 2 playing out on their bikesm 1 at their dads and the youngest messing on pc while i peel potatoes should be peeling them right now best get a move on!

tribpot Wed 25-Dec-13 13:08:53

Woken by cat going berserk round the bedroom at 1:30.

Woken by child at 6:15. Slightly earlier than we had agreed but not too horrific. When I phoned a friend at 09:20 and he sounded like I'd woken him up I remembered normal people would not have been up for 3 hours at that point.

CremeEggThief Wed 25-Dec-13 12:40:21

7.15, after finally dropping off about 1.30, and waking up 4 or 5 times in between sad. Went back to bed at 8.30 and slept well until 10 though. Can't even blame it on a little one, as my DS is 11. Just not sleeping well at the moment.

Ruprekt Wed 25-Dec-13 12:32:08

Woke up at 11.10am this morning......bliss! smilesmilesmile

scaevola Wed 25-Dec-13 12:30:44

8:30. The eldest teen had to be woken, as the other two DC couldn't wait any longer.

Babieseverywhere Wed 25-Dec-13 12:28:34

CestelloAnnunciation Wed 25-Dec-13 12:23:35

DS came in to our room at 2am and 5am to ask if Santa had arrived yet <cry>. relented at 6am when DD woke up, too. Sleep deprivation abd champagne = dunno how I'm gonna cook dinner ...

MrsWOLF1 Wed 25-Dec-13 12:18:13

Up at 9.00am very chilled day hubby preparing veg rib of beef for lunch

caketinrosie Wed 25-Dec-13 12:15:52

I was awake at 1am then 2:30 then 4 for about an hour then asleep then finally up again at 6:30. I then sat in a semi conscious state for 40 mins whilst watching present opening. I then went back to bed until now when my ds woke me with the delicate sound of his new trumpet blasting in my ear. I have just eaten all the m&s chocs and any minute now I'm cracking open the prosecco. I'm not even washed. Hangs head in shame doesn't give a shit Happy Christmas everybody! fgrin

NotMissMiranda Wed 25-Dec-13 12:06:05

I was woken up by a thunder storm at about 3 this morning but DS1 didn't wake up until 8...amazed really.

starlight1234 Wed 25-Dec-13 11:35:14
