"Often what I hear, especially from mothers, is that they are intentionally staying up late at night because it is the only time they have to themselves" to do laundry, pay bills, and catch up on work.
If I didn't stay up later than my son I'd go insane. Most things can get done in the day time, but I just need some silent me time... alot of silent me time. I get probably about 6-7 hours of broken sleep a night and that's definatly not enough considering I'm trying to grow a human (Due May 22nd). I'm not really sure how I'll manage when the new baby is here but hopefully I'll be able to fit in alot of naps or something.
