    7-7:30 on weekdays (as early as 6:30 if she hasn't napped). On the weekend it's pretty much when ever....

    we start our bedtime routine around 6:45, that's when DD gets a bath, around 7 is bottle and she is in bed asleep by 7:30 (on a good night) and she is up around 6:15 (she hears me up and getting ready for work and she is up for the day) Lately she's been having a 30-45 min nap in the afternoon.

    Both girls are asleep by 8 pm. #1 gets up b/w 7 and 7:30 am... #2 and I usually sleep in for another hour or so. I find that the later I put them down, the earlier they get up. I have been debating on putting them down even earlier but I find the evenings so rushed as it is already.

    Mine goes down at around 10pm, which seems late, but she gets up at 8am and seems to do fine on 10 hours sleep. If I try to put her to bed any earlier it doesn't work.

    Makalyla goes to bed at 9 (she is 11)
    Andew 8:30 (he is 9)
    Braxton and Brooklyn ( 7 & 6 ) at 7:30 sleep til 6:30
    Noah 8 sleeps til 6:15

    All my kids get up early no matter when I put them to bed.
    I think Noah may be ready to start the bedtime routine early but I really enjoy our quiet 1/2 hour before he goes to bed. The older kids are off watching TV and the younger ones are already in bed.

    The boys are in bed by 7pm. Dinner is done around 6:30, bath, books and bed by 7pm. The boys sleep until anywhere between 7:30am and 9am. Kellan is usually up earlier than Koen.

    Aden (almost 2) goes up for a bath at 7. After that we brush teeth, go to his room for a diaper and PJ's. Read a book if he wants. Mommy milk. Sippy with water, prayers, talk about all of the family member who are "sleeping" and sometime movies that are sleeping. Then he usually asks to go on the potty. Get up for a bathroom trip and back to bed. I lie down with him till he falls asleep and on a normal night he is sleeping by 8-8:30. If he doesn't have a bath that night then we go up at 7:30. If we are somewhere and he will be falling alseep in the car we leave at 8.

    He has a nap during the day for anywhere between 45 min-2 hrs depending on when he woke up.

    Usually awake between 6 and 7 lately

    My guys are early! But I read a book that said the earlier they go to bed the longer they sleep and it has always worked for me. Both of them go down at 6. Aidan wakes up at 6am or a little later if he happens to wake at night. Austin wakes up once after going down but either gets himself back to sleep or we do. He feeds once or twice in the night and his wakeup time varies. Aidan has been going to sleep at 6 since he was 2 months old. I love it. I get the evening to myself and my DH usually gets up with Aidan to have time with him before work. Only thing is that we can't go out in the evenings very often but I give that up over having my alone time every night!

    Most nights I have Jordyn in bed between 7:30 and 8 only because she is ready then. Camryn is between 8:30 and 9. My dh doesnt' get home from work until 6:30 sometimes 7 most nights so I need the kids to stay up to see him. He's out of the house by 8. If they went to bed any earlier they'd never get any daddy time.
    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.

    Caleb & Ben (5) are in bed by 7. We normally start our routine at 6:30 or 6:45. They are up most mornings by 6:30 to 7am which is when hubby and I are up anyways.

    Jackson has been going to bed at 6am but he is still waking up 2x per night to feed (9pm & 1am) and then gets up at 7:30am.

    The dog & I go to bed (usually by 10) before my kids (21, 17 & 15). I let myself read or watch TV quietly (so that they don't know I'm awake).



    PS I'm up at 5:30 durring the weekdays (daycare kids) and not so early on the weekends.
