  • anywhere from 3-6 depending on my kids sleep patterns, and my need for alone time. which I ONLY get when everyone is sleeping. they get up insanely early, and do not always sleep through the night, my ds was abducted by his father and hidden for 4 months, and he still has nightmares, though that was almost a year ago.

  • 4-8, depending on my SO. He's a truck driver, and whether he is driving during the day or at night affects how much sleep I get (meaning if he's driving during the day, I get more, since he is also going to bed at night, but if he's driving at night, I get less since he's just getting up). My kids hit the bed and that's it til dawn. lol

  • I usually get 5-6. I think I should probably try to get more because I feel run down most of the day but oh well.

  • I lie in bed for a minimum of 8, often 9 or 10 hours, but actual sleep evades me, as I sleep with an irritable snoring grizzly.

  • on average 6-7 but if I followed my body's cues then it would be closer to 10.
