no sleep??? why

i cant sleep.. i want to . i lay in bed for hours and still nothing. i wake up at 6 or 7 everymorning, and i go non stop chasing after three kids all day and cleaning house, staying busy... its around 5:30 before i even start to drift off and by then the kids i watch are waking up around 6... 8 at the latest...
i watch a five year old and a two year old. their mom works third shift, so i try to wake up with them so she can sleep.. but even the kids wont go to sleep until 12 or later.. is the lack of sleep bad on the baby???? and why cant i sleep even when i try????
