Don't understand, so can't pass judgement!

SmileandWave Sun 19-Oct-08 22:00:10

Don't understand either?

DH kept children up and you have to deal with the fallout?

ScareyBitchFeast Sun 19-Oct-08 22:02:01

Why don't you just say 'time for bed now' and send them up?

I hate these threads where you have to fill in the gaps yourself.

thisisyesterday Sun 19-Oct-08 22:04:01

yes you are.
because you also have a say in how late they stay up.
why not implement a rule which means homework is done earlier, so that they get to bed on time?

Twelvelegs Sun 19-Oct-08 22:04:13

Just make sure he gets all their clothes ready and lunchboxes packed!! YABU!!
Christ it's 10 o'clock...... stop the homework and remind him to start it next weekend a little earlier than Sunday night.

ScareyBitchFeast Sun 19-Oct-08 22:04:46

it isgoing to be such fun in the morning - not

NoBiggy Sun 19-Oct-08 22:06:07

<shrugs> I do it. Get DD1 up and dressed and walk her to school. Pop DD2 in bed with DP before I go, walk back get the car and off to work.

Or if working nights, get DD1 up and to school, then back to bed.

Tis late, there will likely be suffering somewhere, you're right.

ScottishMummy Sun 19-Oct-08 22:06:15

now c'mon AIBU you need to give us details to be ruminated over,comments to be misconstrued

and if all else fails some raver will correct your spelling

chopski chop

more details please

ladymariner Sun 19-Oct-08 22:06:23

Why not do their homework on friday night??

And yes, there is more than a touch of poacher turned gamekeeper about my comment!!! blush

ScareyBitchFeast Sun 19-Oct-08 22:06:33

<<i was joking>> small voice,
wishes she hadnt bothered to rant

seeker Sun 19-Oct-08 22:07:49

But why are they doing homework at 10.00 on a Sunday night?

My domestic organization would make Sweeny Todd look good, but my dcs have finished their homework by 6.00 on Sundays!

ScottishMummy Sun 19-Oct-08 22:08:28

oh behave,don't start AIBU and not expect summat to be said

ScareyBitchFeast Sun 19-Oct-08 22:10:42

yes - i remember that now, the homework was started at 5 ish!

ScareyBitchFeast Sun 19-Oct-08 22:22:24

Still at it angry

seeker Sun 19-Oct-08 22:46:13
