That sleep deprivation stuff. DH doesn't get home until 10:20 and Kailey and I fall asleep about 11 or just after (yes it's late but I CANNOT go to bed without Josh being home). I wake up once or twice to feed Nola at night and wake UP at 5.... I'm tired. Never had to deal with this working stuff before being a SAHM. Can't wait for DH to get another job so I can be a SAHM again!! oy vey tired.... yummy coffee

Ohhhh that is tough. I am sorry. I was so sleep deprived when Jonah was tiny too. It is such a tough thing to have to push through. Why do you have to be up at 5am....I HATE waking that early!

Do you/ can you take any kind of nap after work/ before dh goes or while the girls do? A little 45 minuter can make a big difference. I'm really sorry you had/have to start work so soon its got to be tough all around. Hang in there.

Yea I went back 2.5wks after having her. Sucks but we can't afford me to not work.

I do take a nap every day with Kailey. It's nice and helps a TON.
