What time do you moms wake up on weekends? Having major guilt about not being up before my son getting stuff done. (Single parent)

You are in no way neglecting or endangering your kid by sleeping...so there’s zero reason to feel guilty. We deserve rest too.

When they wake me up which is usually 6 am. There is no way I would get up earlier and get anything done. If your son sleeps in, use the quiet time for yourself to enjoy a coffee peacefully.

Don’t feel guilty for recooperating! Burn out happens, that extra 2h is a gift from the gods you must allow yourself to benefit from. Especially as a single working mom.

I get up 15 minutes before just to get a shower some days, but my daughter is only 2. She gets up at 7 everyday. Don’t feel guilty if you need sleep take it!

There are mornings I get up and mornings I throw an iPad at my kids and sleep in. It’s not like because you’re a single mom, you’re not worthy of sleep or time for yourself.

The iPad is a life saver!

It depends on how tired I am. I prefer to get up at 6 (they get up around 7/7:30) to have my coffee and stuff before they get up, but if I’m tired I’ll sleep until they get up. But I never get up early to get stuff done- i just do it to have time to myself.

When my baby gets up around 6:30am. It’s rare I get up earlier than that.

I get up when the baby gets up. Sometimes that at 6, sometimes at 7:30 if he’s feeling generous 😂. Sometimes I nap when he takes his morning nap. I feel zero guilt as I know that I am a more fun and engaged mum when I’m not a zombie. I also deserve a rest after being on the clock for everyone else all week. That snooze time is the highlight of my week 😂

The other day I slept until 11 and I was so proud of myself. Without apology I wish I could teach myself and my kids better sleep habits like getting enough sleep and that naps are good at any age.

Drop that guilt! Sleep in if you can! You’ll spend time quality with your son an hour or two later. Not a big deal!

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
