Do you stay up late to clean and relax? It seems like 1:00am is the only time its quiet in this house of six plus animals.

I have 4 chilren 13yrs, 9 year old twins and a 4 year old. My husband works full time and I stay at home. I wake at 6:15 and go to bed around 2:00am. Is it just me or do more women do this?

  • in my case, its just! I couldn't survive on that.. I wake at 6 - i have 3 cats and 1 3 year old who still wakes 2-3 times a night some/most nights from growing pains/nightmares etc.. so I don't get a solid 2 hours then I go to bed at 1030 after him.. that's barely enough for me..

  • Same here. 4 kids, no pets. I only stay up late on Thursday nights to mop the floors so they can dry overnight. Everything else waits til the next day.

  • My husband works nights and sleep during the day while I try to keep our 2.5 yo happy and quiet. Cleaning and relaxing after dh is gone and ds is sleeeping is the best time to do it. Bless you with all those bodies in your house, your a rock star.
