    I have the opposite problem OP. I put my kids to bed at 7.30 and then I am asleep on the couch every night by 8.30. My husband sends me to bed at 10 ish. I would desperately like to stay up longer to enjoy some quiet kid-free time. But I can't keep awake. We are all up at 6.15 am. And when I get up, I still feel exhausted.

    I feel like all I do is work, looking after the kid/home stuff and then sleep. There is no time for me anymore because I can't stop myself falling asleep

    Have you been to see your GP and had bloods taken to check vitamin levels?

    Not yet because between a very demanding job and two kids, I haven't had time. But I think I need to make time. It is getting me very down.

    I go to bed about 9, and I read for however long I feel like. I guess, most often, I would be reading for 30 mins, or so. I will wake through the night once or twice, but I get back to sleep easily. I get up about 8am. No children, no job stress. marie.

    I go to bed probably between 930-10pm, up around 7am for work. Granted, I have never had problems sleeping. I would suggest having a hot bath before bed to wind down, and also no electronics in the bedroom to distract you. Even reading a book makes me tired. Perhaps you could try reading a book at bedtime or even a magazine.

    Dh and I are up early, the boys are usually awake by 5.30 too but if not they are woken at 6. We all leave the house at 7am.
    The boys are in bed at 7.30 and are asleep soon after. Dh and I are in bed by 9.30 often go to bed at 8.30. The boys aren't allowed technology after 5pm and dh and I limit ours then too usually, we certainly have a good hour with no technology before bed.
    The weekends are the same as weekdays.
