HAHA did you say "sleep in?" WHAT is that?
We've not got to sleep in since our oldest was born (she'll be 14 in Sept) The older kids would ALWAYS wake at the crack of dawn - we had a rule - they were not allowed out of bed (other than to go pee and back in bed) until 7am... then by the time they started actually sleeping later than 7, we had another baby then another. LOL
Christopher wakes at 6:30 (although the last month he's been waking between 5:50-6am ARG) and Ali has the "not out of bed until 7:00 rule" too... And by golly at "its seven dero dero" she is UP and wakes anyone still sleeping!!
As for keeping the kids quiet when needed - DH works from home a couple days a week and when he's on the phone we have to be quiet (not easy with FOUR kids in the house). Some days he ends up on super long conference calls (some that last nearly 2 hours) and those are the hardest times... When weather is nice I try to take them out - or we go to the library... when weather isn't nice for outside, or I don't feel like going somewhere, we read books, watch tv, paint, color ect.
