Naps? What is that? hahaha... I wish. I just drag all day. My 3 yo does not slow down for me. :( I can fall asleep at 8:30 these days. Heck, I could even fall asleep at 7:30 after I put her down to bed.

I do home daycare so I can't nap, but man right now I have to put in some music and get on the computer just to stay awake. On nights we have activities I come home exhausted, and the nights we are home, I find myself dozing off on the couch at 5 or 6. Thankfully my DH is understanding though.

I usually hit the couch at 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I can't sleep - but I just have to crash and almost sleep. My 4 yo is pretty good about making sure I don't fall asleep.

My quality of sleep has been crummy for a few weeks. And the exhaustion is starting to show!

When I'm not working, I always take an afternoon nap now, usually from about 1-3 pm. And sometimes I'll squeeze in a morning one if DS is tired enough to sleep too. And I still feel completely drained!

I'm thinking being up and down during the night for potty & snack breaks could add to this. Lol

Some days yes! I feel like I could sleep all day. Today I came home from work ate lunch and fell asleep. I have absolutely no energy.
