    Just wondering what time everyone puts their 3-5 yr olds to bed?
    And what time do they generally get up in the morning.

    I take Ewan up to bed at 7.30 so once he is washed and changed its probably nearer to 8.

    He gets up at about, 6.30 if his dad is off to work at that time as all the movement wakes people up.
    Or other days it can be 8ish.

    My son has since he was a baby, been a night owl. He's now 5. If he goes to sleep at 8 p.m., he will awake at 10 and be up until 1 or 2.

    So, he usually falls asleep around 10 p.m. Makes for tiring nights and lack of OH time.

    Hoping that once he is in school full time this will change.

    Jack usually goes to bed between 7-7.30

    He gets up anywhere from 6-7.30 he seems to know when his dad is up and like to spend time with him before he goes to work

    William is the EXACT same way, it can be very frustrating, and it deffinetly means absolutley no me time or OH time, because by the time he finally passes out then I am ready for bed too, and then he wakes up early in the morning, so I dont even get any time in the morning to myself.

    well i try and get nicole to bed at 7.30, especially on a school night but she is such a night owl and normally doesnt actually go to sleep till around 10pm. she'll get up anywhere between 5.30 and 8am!!! the earlier she goes to bed the later she gets up and vice versa!! it is exhausting.

    School nights its 7.30 she goes to bed, we read story then sleep time. Depending on story it can be about 8.00 by time settled.

    Normally gets up at 6.30 to 7.00 to go to toilet, then despite telling her its still early I can guarantee when I go downstairs about 7 ish to get sorted for work, DD will be up playing in her bedroom/ looking @ books, having turned on the light/ opened her blind & curtains.

    Leigha goes to bed at about 6.30 because she loves to snuggle up and read her books. So by the time she goes to sleep its about 7-7.30.
    She wakes up at 5!! :shock: and sometimes its 4.30. :(

    Landon and Casen go to bed between 9-10 right now because Casen's school hours are 12:30 to 2:30 and Landon starts at 11 on Wed but 11:30 every other day so they don't have to be up early so this works for us. But soon we are moving back to TX and Landon's school will start at like 7:30-8 so we will probably get them going to bed by 8...maybe even 7
