  • No, thats ashame, but it sounds like it should have been bedtime for the tot .@ 8pm who takes a nap? We call that bedtime from where I come from.

  • No, I dont, but there were times when I was pregnant that I'd doze off on the couch, but our home is baby proof. My 3yr old would wake me up, and once I'd realized I'd fallen asleep Id get up and move around.

  • only if daddy is home. never when it is just us. there is no telling what she will get into or do without supervision.

  • I read about that, so sad!! I guess it would depend on the age of the kids. I have a 3 year old & a 3 month old, so no. If I had teenagers then yes

  • Not a chance, but I hear on facebook all the time about this girl talking about cleaning up messes after her 2 year old doesn't nap while she is (she's pregnant.. that's her excuse). Do you have a link so I can link it on my facebook? Wouldn't want this to happen to her.

  • How did she keep him in the house while she slept at night?? You have to sleep sometime!!
    I wish I could have slept when my kids did... but i couldn't wind down enough to get to sleep before they would wake up again.
