I figure I will get rest in about 10 years or so. LOL. I have the normal 8-5 job and when I get home, I play with them (3 yrs and 10 weeks) and then its time to make dinner. We have a nice relaxing dinner, then play, then bathe and quiet play. I don't do any of the cleanup from dinner and chores until they are both in bed. I go like a madwoman cleaning up the house and throwing in a load of laundry. Then I have that time to myself and chill out for about an hour before bed. I then get up and do it all over again at 5:00 a.m. so that I can get ready, and do some misc. chores around the house before they get up. I know that I am only getting about 3.5 to 4 hours of sleep at night, but I figure I will get to sleep again someday. It's important for me to spend quality time with them. Don't get me wrong, my 3 yr old does clean up his toys and room before he goes to bed - I don't want him to think we have a cleaning fairy. LOL. Also, preparing some meals the night before works wonders!
