What I do when I am really tired is lay down with my son when he takes his nap. I just lay there and by the time he wakes up I have slept enough to get me through the rest of the day. Also on weekends I make my husband get up with our son so I can get an extra hour or two of sleep.

I don't understand why is your husband waking you up? You need your sleep or you will lose your sanity. It is hard enough being a mom well rested. I don't know your husband but mine can be demanding at times he thinks because I stay at home I have all the time in the world. SO not the case!! If I need time for me or can't do something for him I need to tell him because his idea of what I need and do all day is wrong. Anyway I guess I'm trying to say maybe you just need to let your husband know you need your sleep.
