Why do I hate going to bed every night. I dread to think what little sleep I will get having to get up to the kids why DH snores away and gets a full night sleep.
I work 2 jobs, study, look after the kids and try to keep the house clean.
How am I suppose to function as an adult on 4 hours sleep and then go to work all day, come home and look after the kids and then do housework and study when they are in bed?
I can't keep doing this.

Why isn't your husband helping/sharing the load?

I don't know why. He just doesn't. If I try to wake him, it takes forever and he grumbles a bout it ans the kids are hysterical by the time he gets to them

Hugs. I am not working and struggling on 2-3 hours sleep a night with 2 kids - and my hubby does all the cleaning. Can totally understand your resentment! I would be furious.
Don't know your situation OP but can you hire help? A cleaner etc? Tell your DH it's either he clean or pay for a cleaner, you can't be doing that working 2 jobs and looking after young children. Especially if you're not getting sleep.
Not much advice sorry just wanted to offer a hug. You are right you can't survive on 4 hrs sleep indefinitely. Less than 5 is a recipe for depression. Your DH needs a good kick up the bum by the sound of it.

He only helps out 'when he feels up to it' as he has the kids during the day.
