  • LOL sorry that happens to you. My kids are either with grandparents or visiting their dad every other weekend. I usually only have my 17 yr old home along with my dh on those weekends. My teen usually has things to do so we hardly see him. I sleep like nobodies business when they arent here. I love it. However, at first when it started I was like you. It just takes some practice lol

  • When all my kids have overnights at grandmas I usually sleep in--- unless the doofus cat wakes me up.

  • Usually it's just one or 2 kids out of the house. My parent's usually take one or 2 so the other can have some one on one time.
