How early in the morning does your GS wake you up?

I gave up trying to sleep in once I had my daughter, but NOW I've really given it up! If it's not Lexi waking up at 6 am, it's Bella waking me up at 5 am!!! Then of course they lounge around in the afternoon snoozing while I have to do housework, LOL!

Does ANYONE on this board get to sleep in???

Re: How early in the morning does your GS wake you up?

I have a fairly unique situation in that I share custody (lol) of my girls with my mom. When I moved out, we decided that we would split their time between my house and my parents because they do not like to be separated.

Why am I telling you this?

Because the only days I can sleep in is when they are not here!

Of course, yesterday when they weren't here...the cat woke me up!!

NO! when we had one dog I could sleep in, but now wit the puppy I'm up around 5-5:30, and that's AFTER my husband has already let out at 3:00!! My trainer said to just let him bark, add 10 minutes a day...it worked the first couple of days, but not this morning!!

Renji wakes us up at FullBladder o'clock. I try to wake up EARLY on weekends to ensure that FB:00 doesn't come too soon, that way I can catch a few more Z's.

Re: How early in the morning does your GS wake you up?

Bella likes to sleep in as much as I do. Anna however is up to chase the non existing roosters out to crow! Since I broke my back, I cant sleep through the night all night. I get up every night between 2 am and 3 am and spend about an hour standing and leaning against the breakfast/snack bar in my kitchen. Bella has always been used to going out at this time so she goes and now
Anna goes with her, but as soon as it gets daylight, maybe even before, Anna decides to get Bellas tug toy, or even better, sneak under my bed, which Bella is too big to do now, and then she does the sneak attack/retreat that just gets to Bella. Then I hear Anna whine for me to come help! LOL! I get to sleep in when I am at work!

Re: How early in the morning does your GS wake you up?

Onyx whines to go out at 4:30 every morning. Then DH gets up at 5:30. If I fall back asleep, it is only til 6:30 as the dogs know it is "time to get the kids up" They don't know the weekdays from the weekends...They do have internal clocks. Have to be fed at 7am and 5 pm or I will not be left alone. Great time for training as the focus on me is wonderful before their meals!

Dorian, I hope you have some relief for your back pain asap!

Re: How early in the morning does your GS wake you up?

We have a rule: If my eyes are CLOSED, Grimm may not touch, kiss, interact with me in any way when I am in bed in the mornings. He must also NOT whine. If my eyes are OPEN, he will grin, wag wildly, and come to me when *I* invite him by putting my arm out.

He is too big, I am too fragile, to permit him barging up to me while I am sleeping, nor waking me from very much-needed sleep.

Re: How early in the morning does your GS wake you up?

Benny lets me sleep but, he seems to know exactly when I wake up, all I have to do is roll over and he is there tail waging or on my bed if I invite him. My DH is up early but the dogs do not leave the bedroom till I take them out.
