Night owl for sure. I prefer no on to speak to me before a cup of tea and the clock ticking over to 10am… which works so well as a parent!

I love the nana nap too but it does leave me up and awake for hours at night.

I don't watch these vlogs, I'm on dial-up and they take forever to load….

I am soooo jealous that your kids nap for so long! My daughter, Heidi (13 months), has never been much of a napper and after a lot of obsession and not much progress about the whole situation we have now only progressed to one 1.5 hr nap in the middle of the day which is at least better than two 30 mins which she has done pretty much since born. SIGH!!!! When she naps it's so sweet and fleeting that I don't like to "waste" it trying to sleep as I only just nod off and then she's AWAKE so I enjoy some blog reading time instead.

Love it!

I'm a morning person – I'm happy to be up at 5 or 6 am (hubby's already left for work and toddler is usually still asleep, so that's my peaceful time), but I want to be in bed at night by 8.30 or 9.30pm. I KNOW! That's super early, and unfortunately doesn't always happen, but that's my ideal. My little one hasn't napped since she was 18 months so I'm pretty knackered by the end of the day, and love that quiet time to do a few things before she wakes in the morning!

I'm a bit of both, morning and night person. And you're right, there's something special about being the only one awake in the wee hours of the morn.

My little one doesn't have a day sleep anymore but I'm lucky in that the hubs is home for me to have a nana nap if I feel the need.

Oh and at 2am, you still look gorgeous! :)

I'm a BIG nightowl and I prefer not to nap during the day as it keeps me up even later that night. I don't know how I'm going to cope when the kids get older and need to get ready for school first thing in the morning!

You are tooo cute!
Me, I'm a morning person – hard for me to think straight late at night. And not much of a napper, but not for lack of trying. I'm just a light sleeper and there's always so much to do I can't close my eyes and stop thinking about it all long enough to nap.
Well that was probably the world's most boring comment. And that's why I don't vlog.

I am a morning person 100% in the sense of i usually wake up happy and ready for my day. Since my pregnancy with Master D something clicked in me and instead of being an early to bed early to rise girl i am staying up later and have been hit with the dreaded insomnia bug. So i'm often up until midnight, or later, but mostly i am in bed around 10 and lay there awake for hours.
Naps i do not do. They always leave me feeling blah when i'm woken.
but like you i'm lucky enough that both my kids have a 2 hour nap a day. Yes even the 4 and a half year old, who happily naps. I use that time to watch trashy TV, eat my lunch IN PEACE and just be really selfish for an hour surfing the net.

Well it's almost 2am here and I'm awake… I'm dead tired but cannot sleep. Pre-Tricky I was a night owl and would sleep in – these days I don't get the sleep in… I don't get any sleep cos Tricky just aint a sleeper! Luckily I'm pretty good with the concealer to cover up the bags :)

First of all I love the fact that you Vlog at 2am because that means I'm up and awake here in Johannesburg, South Africa and I get to be one of the first to comment.

I LOVE my sleep. I am an early-to-bed kinda girl (always have been) and I could sleep my life away if I had the chance. Then my girls came along…

Sleep deprivation hit me hard and I became the BITCH FROM HELL. When my kids were really little, friends and family gave me advice to "sleep when they sleep". I could never do that because I battle to switch off and fall asleep during the day. Secondly it makes me incredibly grumpy….

Now I dream of lie-ins and Sunday afternoon naps. My girls haven't had an afternoon nap since they were 2 years old!

I occasionally napped during the day when my kids were little, too. Now I'm old, and I've been known to take a nap during the day sometimes again!
