  • I only do it if my other 2 are asleep as well and honestly I haven't in months. I have 3 so if they are all up there's no way I'm passing out. lol
    It all really just depends on the kid and what they do during that time or how deep of a sleeper you are.

  • Ours are 7, 8 and 14... If I need a short nap I might take on in the early afternoon , but other wise no. If they're all at school, well of course,lol. When they were really little, NO.. There was too much for them to get trouble with.

  • I try not to, but sometimes it happens if I am super tired. I try to just take a nap when my two year old does, though if I fall asleep on the couch while she's watching cartoons, she usually does pretty good. She will get into the fridge and pantry to get her own drinks and snacks, and will even give the dog food and water. LOL. I think she likes to pretend like she's a big girl while Mommy is sleeping.

  • I did today. My kids are 3 & 4 and my bedroom is connected to the living room. So any amount of noise or issues wakes me up. They lay on the couch, watch TV and have "rest time" and I nap... I would die without it...

  • If my children are up i am up i have a 13 yr old and 2 yr old. I work 40+ hours a week so if I am home and the kids are up I am up I want to spend as much time as i have with them. My 13 yr old would watch my LO but I am a PARENT and My children are my World and they come first. Sticking my child/ren infront of the TV so i can sleep isn't happening EVER.
