My dh has suddenly decided that it is my turn.

I dont think it is fair cos I don't do mornings.

He always does and I don't see what is different with tomorrow

We have 4 kids, youngest is 18 months and they wake up far too early (anytime before 8am is too early for me).

So do you think I am being unreasonable to be annoyed with my husband to suddenly decide it is my turn??

I do by the way

I hate mornings and am grumpy if I have to get up early

Sounds like you're grumpy in the evenings too .

Jeez you are grumpy now and grumpy in the morning, lucky dh...............

I HATE mornings am most definitely a nightowl (hence I'm one of the "late nighters" here on MN that frequently post after 12am). BUT for the last 10 weeks I've been geting up at anytime from 4-7am......DH gets up in the night with DS3 (ie before 4am) and then I get up with him in the morning.

YABU - sorry

Forgot to add that he always gets up early even when he is working, BUT he is off work this week and next week so why shouldnt he do it

CSWS, I excel at grumpiness

You are a miserable lot, I thought you would all be on my side

DH knows what I am typing and is slightly amused

i feel your pain.... i dont do mornings either and DH usually gets up with the girls, but he never asks me to get up. I have got up a few times a week these past few weeks due to pregnancy insomnia!


Bibis · 23/08/2007 23:05

Thanks Jarm, at last someone on the same wavelength, I'll tell him that he isn't the only one and he should be greatful I get up at all , although sadly I think I have pushed my luck far enough and it is probably my turn tomorrow.

I'll be here nice and early then
