  • None.. Not even at bedtime because my son hates to sleep and at 3 wakes like an infant some/many nights.. :)

  • If I want quiet time I have to get up at 6 when hubby leaves for work. I get about an hour before the kids wake up.

  • My 4 year old stays pretty quiet while my 11 month old naps! So for about 2 hours and then after 8/9 at night when both kids are in bed! So maybe 3-4 hours a day!

  • When my daughter stopped taking naps, I still put her in room for quiet time for about 2 hours a day because I wasnt ready for her to stop naps. That was 2 years ago. I still make her go to her room for quiet time. I get about 3 hours of quiet time a day assuming all goes well.

  • At least two hours in the afternoon, both my 2yo and my 11 month old go down for their nap at the same time, and after 9pm at night when all 5 of my kids are in bed.

  • Only after my kids AND husband are all asleep which starts around 10-11pm. So for however long after that I stay up is the amount of quiet time I get.

  • It stays pretty quiet if they are playing upstairs. Otherwise, I get quiet time once they are in bed. My infant is very quiet, so it's just the bigger kids that are loud.

  • Not as much as I'd like. ;O) My baby's teething right now, need I say more? I feel like I'm about to pull out all of my hair. I'm a SAHM and my SO is always at work and I don't have any family near me but it's part of life. A professional massage would be great! I really need some me time.
