  • OMG no I wish. I cannot even try to sleep til 1 and I am not TRULY asleep til 3-ish. son has asthma, croup, and nightmares so I am on high alert. hubby has a CPAP machine and would take too long to get to him so I am tense like a cat ready to pounce. I sleep in my glasses sometimes, even.

  • No. I wouldn't be comfortable going to sleep when my kid is still up.

  • No, I can't go to sleep till I know that my kids are in blissful dream mode. Besides, I am a night owl and stay awake till about 2 am (they are asleep by 9pm, max).

  • Why do you think we are all still on!

  • i have, but my oldest is 6, so it is only her that is still awake and she knows to stay in her room and play quietly or watch a movie. usually the nights she is up she is drawing and coloring and quiet. if my 2yr old were still up no way could i sleep, thankfully my 5,2,1yr olds are usually out no later than 7.
