that when it's bed time all i do is toss and turn no matter how tired I am, but I can pass out on the couch for 2 hours in the middle of the day and still could have slept longer if I didn't need to get up with the girls...

I'm the same way too...I can lay down to put Anna down for a nap and fall asleep instantly. Or while I'm putting either one of the girls to bed, I just have to have something to lay my head on and I'm out. I lay in bed for over an hour trying to fall asleep every night though, why can't I go to sleep just as easily then?!

Me too! Sleeping at night in my bed sucks butt, but I am a champion sleeper on the couch any time of day. Drives me nuts!

I'm glad I'm not alone.

mom2more - I only ever get a nap on th weekend, while vegging with the kids on the couch and bam I'm out; during the work week I can be dead tired, and ready to pass out standing up, but as soon as I'm in bed forget it, wide the heck awake.

Same way here. I was dead on my feet last night after 2 very late nights and yet I went to bed and laid awake for hours, now I'm tired this morning. It's so not fair.

I'm proud to say this is NOT me... if I can't sleep in bed, the couch isn't a better option I just can't sleep period.

Same here!! I toss and turn all night, but I can nap at any time during the day. It's driving me crazy! I even try to stay up all day (without taking a nap) so I can sleep at night, but it doesn't work.
