  • WOW You're my hero.

    I have one daughter. I get maybe five or six hours total of quiet time, since she naps for 2-3 hours during the day and goes to sleep at 7PM. I'm sure that'll change as she gets older.

  • After I get home from work--she takes a 1 1/2 - 2 hour nap and then goes to bed at 8 and I go to bed at 11.

  • It varies day-to-day.
    I have 3 daughters ages 20, just about 18, and 15 who live at home. They come and go between their jobs, friends, and various activities.
    I care for my 5 month old granddaughter full time while my 20 y/o daughter works, so I don't get much quiet time then - she won't nap more than 30 minutes at a time.
    I am also in college full time and do everything around the house that I can't get the girls to help me with.
    Different days are different schedules. :)
