I have just been up and woken DD(17). I was getting worried....I don't remember ever sleeping for that long...and DS(15) only got up an hour ago are we being poisoned by sleepy air or are they just slobs?

Wow - my two are early risers compared to a lot of their friends, but I've not come across anyone sleeping in that late. What time did they go to bed?

Well I think DD was probably reading till the early hours as I've just introduced her to Jilly Cooper!...not sure about DS he was up, grumpily at half 7 did his paper round then went back to bed!
Trouble is it messes everything up...they are wanting toast now and i'm just about to cook tea.
DD even stayed up all night one day last week to get her body clock reset but that obviously hasn't worked!
Fish and chips for breakfast it is now!

DD2(18) will turn nocturnal given half the chance. I know she is on facebook till very late at night but I still have a limit of midday for lie ins or everyone in the house is disrupted. I give DH a lift to the station at 6.30am and DS is still going to school so I get very annoyed at people in the house who are asleep half the day with no good reason.

My DSs sleep in record is about 5 O'clock in the afternoon

My ds sleeps a lot. I think he must need it and I like the peace plus some of the food actually lasts! He has a midday limit though although if he slept on i would leave him rather than put up with himgrin

It's when they then go out to meet friends in the evening and expect me to stay up till half 11 to collect them.

I like the limit of midday for lie ins...might try that!

I think they're all the same. DS did get up on Sat at 8.30 to go to American football training but then crashed out for the entire afternoon before getting up and going to a party till after midnight.

He woke up today at noon and will veg out till party time tonight, ie 7pm, prob. won't come home till about 1am again.

Wish my DS (nearly 15) would lie in a bit later. Usually awake by 6.30am. Has his alarm clock set for 7.00 am even at weekends and refuses to turn it off, so wakes rest of family up. Had to ban him from going downstairs before 7.45am and playing on PS3 or computer (in the hope that the incentive to get up early was removed - no such luck!) He never wants to go to bed in evening either and is still awake at 10.30/11.00pm even on a school night - does not have games or tv etc in bedroom but does have a kindle which I think he manages to read with lights off even though it doesn't have a backlight.
Maybe one day I will share in your problems!!!

DD1 will sleep in until lunchtime if she doesnt need to get up for anything. Our rule is that breakfast finishes at 10am. If she wants breakfast then she has to be downstairs by 10am.

ds2 will sleep til 4 or 5 given the chance. But I don't really mind too much - he is so active during term time that a bit of sleep and catching up in the holidays won't do any harm, imo.

bigbluebus, why on earth does he set an alarm in the holidays confused?

bigbluebus I'd be hiding his alarm clock and giving him a tv in his room so you and your dh get some time alone if I were you wink

I get annoyed by them sleeping just for the sake of sleeping.. DS went out saturday night, no idea what time he got home..but he slept till 9pm sunday night..got up for a few hours and went back to sleep till 10.30am this morning.

DD1 sleeps till 10am, when shes awake she doesnt get out of bed, she just moves from her bed to mine cos my tv is apparantly better..

DD2 up at 7am weekdays, between 8-10am weekends, she likes to be up early.

I try to have a rule..10am breakfast time finishes no matter what day it is, Not that anyone ever follows my rules lol
