Impossible for Me to Sleep In

Why is it impossible for me to sleep in in the morning? And I can’t even blame the boys. For some reason I always wake up and stay awake between 8-8:30am. No matter what time I have gone to sleep and no matter how tired I still am.

It is nice since the boys are older, I now have the option, if I need it, to sleep in. WHen they were little I could not wait for this day to come! They are fine getting up and watching a bit of tv before we get going. But try as I might, I am wide awake in the morning and no amount of lying around in bed seems to change that.

Last week I even had the house entirely to myself because the boys were at a sleep over. I was so looking forward to sleeping in…but, nope. Did not happen.

Ah well…let’s just hope that this is a phase and I get over it soon! And I guess that also means that I really should try to get to sleep at a more decent hour. But I  guess that I will have to start on that tomorrow since it is already 12:52am…


About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

One Response to Impossible for Me to Sleep In

  1. For me it is between 6 and 7 a.m., I always wake up. My dh sometimes grumbles about it. He has no trouble sleeping in when he needs it. I go about all blurry-eyed and dazed, even if I was up until midnight and then had to get up twice for sick children or whatnot. It is just that inner-alarm clock. I have no control over it.
