I make dh's lunch the night before & he makes his own coffee in the morning, said he can do that himself so I can just stay in bed ... he's sweet like that! Dd can also get herself up & out on her own, although I'm still usually up by the time she does leave. Dh usually gets up about 5:45 and is out by 6:30; dd leaves about 8:30. I usually get up between 7-7:30. I get up, make my coffee & head for the computer ... check email, facebook & then spend some time on CM before starting my day. My day consists of whatever I decide I want it to consist of basically. When the kids are grown and out of the house (well, all but 1 & that one is basically on her own) you can pretty much do that. And with my health issues, what I can do household wise is somewhat limited and I need more help now, so I get that from dd & dh.
I am up at 6 am put the coffee on then at 630 i get the kids up. They get dressed and are out the door at 7 to catch the bus. Their bus stop is right in front of our house. Then i lay in bed for about an hour and enjoy my coffee and either read or get on the computer then itss up to start the cleaning.

I have to get my diabetic son up at 5:45 because he has to take his shot and he is such a slow eater and the bus comes at about 6:45. I have to stay after him almost the whole time to make sure he gets ready and eats. I have to get my autistic son up and get his clothes for him so he can get ready for school, and tell my older daughter to get up and get ready all while trying to keep the noise down to keep them from waking the baby up, which usually doesnt work. it is quite a chaotic morning every morning.
Get up 730 brush my teeth
Go get my coffee and sit back in bed wait for ds to get up. (He is 2 1/2)
When he gets up have him try to use the big boy potty
Get him something to eat.
Sit and snuggle with him through one of his shows (his snuggles are not going to last forever)
From there depends on the day.
Today I will leave him here at the house with grandma for a bit while I go to the store.
With lots of coffee - I am not a morning person. Typically, it's breakfast, get dressed, start the cleaning. My daughter and I have the same sleep schedule to ensure she's not awake while I'm asleep. She's only 2, so no structured school but we play learning games throughout the day to keep her stimulated.
