Definitely Daddy! He works swing shift til 1am, so he needs the sleep, and I have to get up at 7:30 to take the oldest to school and then tip toe around the house til he wakes up around 1pm to eat and go to work :-(
ASTRID, I am so jealous of your little sleeper. I didn't know kids like that exsisted. My oldest didn't sleep AT ALL until she was 3, and now my baby is following in the same path. It's probably something I'm doing wrong, oh well :)

Yep! Well sort of. The baby sleeps through the night and will wake up for breakfast around 6 or 7. After eating, he goes down for his morning nap which lasts for about 3 or 4 hours. I sleep during his morning nap too! So is that sleeping in?
I never get to sleep in :( Hubby is at work in the mornings and Sunday is our only day off together. But he either lays in bed or gets up and doesn't take the baby. Oh well, I burn more calories awake anyway LOL!

There is no sleep at our house, P E R I O D. My husband generally gets up before I do during the week, and he gets ready for work. I am usually nursing the baby, and then we get up and wake my 5yr old. I get to stay in bed 30 minutes longer because I get up ALL night, then we all are out the door (husband and I to work, kids to school/daycare).
weekends we lay in bed, and just add more people to it as they wake (anywhere between 4 am and 7am). I am so sleep deprived at work today, I just realized I left all the milk I pumped on Friday in the pump bag all weekend. My heart literally sank as I threw it in the garbage at work today. Just wanna cry!!
Well DH gets to sleep later than I do, but I really wouldn't call it sleeping in. I get up at 5am to go running and then get ready for work. My DH has to get up with the kids, which is usually anywhere between 6:30 and 7:30. He works 2nd shift so he goes to bed later than I do.

when DH is home, he gets to sleep in most of the time. When i was pg with DD, he let me sleep a lot. But he's been gone so long, i think i will just be glad to have him home, i won't mind not sleeping in!!!
Also, both kids sleep through the night most of the time, so i don't really mind getting up when they do, about 6.30 or 7am.
sleeping in lol, I did not know that was an option once I had my son. I don't mind though, I found a way to breast feed laying down so that is what I do every morning just to relax for a little while longer
Definitely DH. Right now I have one baby that sleeps through the night, but the other baby (Sam, must be the name ) keeps me up constantly throughout the night. I guess it doesn't help that the twins are still sleeping in the bed with me because I'm still feeding them. I also want to get my babies in their own cribs now that they're 1. DH sleeps in the nursery now.
Before Sam Hubby use to let me sleep in, often. We would take turns. But with Sam he always get's to sleep in!! A little bitter about it right now since I am so sleep deprived! I took a sleep survey and could relate to so much of what they were saying would happen if your sleep deprived. It was a real eye opener, ha ha! I got 9 out of 10 questions right on the survey would of gotten 10 but read the last question wrong, sleep deprived thing! I am hoping to get Sam in his crib this weekend and get him to sleep more at night and then I'll get more sleep!! Wish me luck!

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.

Sleep in?? LOL. Nobody sleeps in in our house! Dh works 7 days a week either up at 4 am or 6 am and both the kids are early birds so I am out of bed between 6-7am every day. I don't mind since it's the routine we are on I am used to it.
If I need to keep dd quiet it's either time for an episode of Dora, sit down with drawings or books or listening to her CD's of nursery rhymes.
Usually DH. I don't mind waking up early at all and I usually can find what to do. The problem is that he's SOOO super sensitive to noise that I can't do housework or play with the kids upstairs really and I go a little stir crazy downstairs. In good weather I try to take them out, but sometimes even if I don't mind waking up and I don't want to leave the house - then it's a bit of challenge dealing with the kids. Any suggestiosn? ;-)
