Night Owls Duggars

Have you ever seen the Duggars between 5:00AM and 8:00AM? If you have, you know that they are not morning people. So what's the opposite of a morning person? I'll give you a hint: Hoooot, Hooooot.
"We aren't morning people," explains Jessa. "We just haven't grown up that way; our parents are both night owls."
"We get our energy at about 9:00 at night -- we're ready to go!" says Michelle. "We have like another 4 or 5 hours under our belt. But the mornings then, of course, are a little bit later. For us, 7:00 is early."

Are you a morning person, a nigh owl, or somewhere in between?


  1. I'm with you, Duggars... I am totally a night owl! I have to get up at 6am to be at work by 8:00, and I'm always miserable. At night, I come alive and then have to try to force myself to get to sleep at a reasonable hour so I can get up for work the next morning. It's a constant struggle! The weird thing is that I was always a morning person from birth until about 5 years ago (age 30). Then, it completely changed!

  2. I"m a night owl too! In a MAJOR way! My bedtime is 10pm, but I go to bed between 2pm and 5am! It's a good thing I am a wedding and family photographer and can set my own schedule because otherwise I would be dying working an 8-5 job!

    I always wondered when the Duggars went to bed! Esp the kids!

  3. I get so tickled see the Duggars try to get up at 7, especially the little ones.

    I am a night owl from a family of night owls. When I was in college I used to get off work at 1 AM and then start homework. I married an early bird. It took me years to retrain myself, but I did. I had to: I married an early bird and 3 of my 4 children are early birds. Of course, I think that if I had the opportunity I could go right back to living the night owl life.

    Don't the Duggars start family altar something like 8:30. LOL, my early-to-bed-early-to-rise family is in bed by that time. Isn't it neat how families can be so different?

  4. Definately a night owl. So glad when I retired and didn't have to hide the fact that I was a zombie at work from 8 am to 10 am. I wonder if it has anything to do with the time a person was born? I was born in the wee hours of the morning and have been a night owl from birth, too.

  5. I am so thankful to hear this as someone who is constantly being told (as an adult) I should go to bed so I can get up with my children. I stay up until 2 or 3 and wake at 10:30. Much of that is school planning but it's when I have uninterrupted time to work. I only have 3 children but hope for more. You have been such an encouragement to me as a Christian, homeschooling mother, I want to award you with the One Lovely Blog Award.

  6. That is so sweet of you, Mrs. Mandy! I'm so glad you're loving the blog!

  7. Even night owl probably doesn't describe me! 'Night shift' might be better! I went to bed at 6am preparing a project for a science fair once, and its not unusual for me to go to bed between 1 - 4am, although being in NZ, its starting to get light earlier, so i'm trying to get to bed early enough that i can get to sleep BEFORE the birds all start singing and it gets light!
    A couple of times i've still been awake at 7:30am or later! and gotten up about 4pm....
    lol anyway...
