I've come to confess a sin and get any help I can.
My husband has a rotating schedule of 3 on 3 off. On his 3 days off he takes care of our son so that I can go back to bed for a couple hours after breakfast. What everyone doesn't know is that the 3 days we are home alone is that I still go back to bed. I make sure all dangerous things are picked up, our son has toys and cartoons are on, the doors are locked and kitchen gate is up. It is just an hour and a half or so that he is alone, but my door is open and I am a light sleeper.
Any ideas on how to stay awake would be helpful....I've tried coffee, but I just can't drink it in the summer! I should probably go to bed earlier, but when he doesn't go to bed till 10p I like to have a little time to myself before I start it all over again.
