I am not a morning person.

School start time has changed so thy have to get up at 6.30 to leave by 7.45.

This means I have to get up at 6 to brace myself for getting them up.

It is killing me. Particularly if I drank a bottle some wine the night before.

Is it unreasonale to wave them off then go back to bed for a couple of hours?

Hell no. Go for it! I certainly would. grin

Totally reasonable.

Mine leave at 8 on the school bus.

Today I am mumsnetting working, but some days I grab a couple of extra hours after they leave, as I am a really poor sleeper at night.

Can you speed up the morning at all? Mine get up at 7.15 to leave by 8.

In theory don't have to get up at such an ungodly hour but DD2 is a bit aspergersish and has to do certain things at certain times and has to have at least an hour and a half to scream, shout, fuss, panc, obsess and prepare.
I'm exhaustd.

oh EG that sounds like hard work.

Deffo go back to bed!

EccentricaGallumbits Mon 07-Sep-09 08:55:03

well. if it's alright I will!

no - go on! go - stop posting things on here! I'm off for a lovely long bath without any interruptions.

would you be able to go back to sleep now though????
Won't you just lie there thinking of all the things that have to be done?
Why don't you do household chores now, hoover etc and the have an hour at 11 ish guilt free?

I would play to be able to go back to bed! grin

I used to regularly nap when mine were little, infact we would all go for a kip in the afternoon.

I used to turn down afternoon invites and play dates so as not to disturb my the childrens nap time blush

It was my way of coping and once I had gotten over the guilt factor, I learnt to really enjoy it!

You are a human being, not a machine and if you exhaust yourself now then you will be hopelessley grumpy this afternoon.

So go on then!!! grin

I get up just before 7 and wave the darlings off at half past.
Not unknown for me to go back to bed blush, depending how well I slept or how late to bed I was.
Not unknown for hubby to still be there when I go back.
blush blush

EG it sounds like a good idea to me.In fact, tbh, have done it myself quite a few times lol.

You need to recharge your batteries, esp if you didn't sleep well...

SHould just add that on dh's day off, we usually go "back to bed" after they have gone to school

blush grin

go for it.... It's common in our house, or was before the arrival of DD2 6mth ago

EccentricaGallumbits Mon 07-Sep-09 13:16:03

I did go back to bed and had anothr hours nap.

Then I went to the bookshop and bought 3 books (i'm on holiday for 3 weeks!!!)

Now I'm tired again.

Would it be unreasonable to have an afternoon nap as well as a morning one?

When I could I did and if I could still do it now I would smile
