I work nights and dont get home until about 5 a.m. My 2 and 3 year olds usually sleep until about 8, 9 if I am really really lucky so on the nights I work I get 3 to 4 hours sleep. My daughter who is almost 13 has been saying that she would get up with the babies in the morning and watch them for me to sleep, but I feel bad leaving my daughter to take care of my kids so I can sleep. I am really exhausted though and its starting to catch up to me so I am thinking about it. Would you? Do you think its OK? Guess I just feel guilty and am looking for some insight.Answer Question

My husband is Military and gone ALL the time. She would obviously only be able to help me on the weekends and only when she doesnt have something to do. For me its just the guilt of sleeping while my child is doing my work.
