  • my hubby used to work 3rd and he would get home around 7ish then help get the older kids on the bus then sleep for about 6 hrs well at least try to, it was hard cause at that time my youngest was an infant and when she cried it would wake him up. 3rd shift is the worst when u have kids. my hubby did 3rd shift for 3 years until he found another job, his current job pays less than the other one but its less stressful

  • when he did work 3rd he got home at 7, he was supposed to sleep from 9-5 but he never really did. i got home at 5 and usually he continued to sleep for awhile sometimes until he went to work. he was mean all the time, it was terrible! now he's on second and gets home at 11, it's great!

  • mine has done nights a few times and when the kids were younger it was HORRIBLE- he was always mad about getting woke up by them, he was grumpy and we fought a lot because he slept so late on hsi days off we could
    NEVER do anything as a family.

    The kids are teens now-and he just started nights again after about 6 years on days. It is going MUCH better this time around.
    He works 12-13 hour nights though so he leaves at 6:30 and gets home at around 7:30 or 8 am. sleeps from around 9 until 5 or 5:30
    but he does 4 day 3 day weeks so he gets 3 or 4 day weekends which he likes
