How much sleep do you get!?

I put dd to bed (she's 2) then I have to put my husband to bed! LOL seriously though, he won't go to sleep unless I softly run my fingers over his back! Then I have to try to sleep with a pinched nerve in my back and no working meds... dh gets up at 4 am for PT (army) and I end up wide awake! I think I get about 5 hours of sleep a night... dd wakes up at 6-7 and doesn't nap anymore.

What about you?! How do you get to sleep and what is your routine?

  • Usually at least 8 hours. My kids go to bed at 7(for the little one), 8, and the last two at 8:30. So by 9 o clock the house is quiet. Dh and I usually spend an hour or so together and then are in bed by 10. A lot of nights he will stay up and watch tv, but I go to sleep. I wake up at 7 to get the kids up and ready for school.

  • I usually take my melatonin at 9:30 so I am asleep by 10 and up at 6. If I don't get a min of 8 hours I am cranky. My body would require on it's own 10, but I don't have that luxury.

  • 7-8. My daughter mostly sleeps thorugh the night, but occasionally gets up once right before I'm about to go to bed. I still get in 7-8.

  • Chloe, my 2 year old goes to bed around 8. Jackson, my 6 month old goes to bed anywhere from 6-8. Hubby and I don't go to bed until 10-11. He gets up at 4 to form up and march to tech school - I usually don't even notice until he kisses me goodbye, lol, then I don't get up until usually...9:30 when my 2 year old is ready for breakfast. The time I get up ranges from 8 - 11 ^_^ So, I get a good 10 hours.
