I work night shift part time, two 12 hour shifts, then come home and care for my 2 year old and 10 month old because my boyfriend works days. We worked it out this way so we wouldn't have to pay for child care. I worked full time up until I had my second child, then went to part even though we could really use the money. Anyway, I had been getting a couple hours of sleep before I had to go back to work until here recently, when my oldest has begun to outgrow naps. Now I literally stay up from Sunday morning around 7 until Tuesday evening when my boyfriend comes home. I stay completely exhausted!!! I don't know what to do. I can't afford daycare as we are barley scraping by as it is, and don't qualify for childcare assistance (even if I did, I don't know that I would be able to leave them with people I don't know...). Any other moms out there with a similar situation?? How do you sleep??
