Well I hate to admit it but this parenting stuff is a little tough. My son is now 3 1/2 and my daughter is just a little over three months and I am beat. I have to be at work at 5am and that means trying, and I say that sarcastically, trying to get to sleep before 10pm.  According to 'Web MD' most kids between the age of 3 to 6 need at least 10 hours of sleep. Including the nap my son gets at daycare we are pushing it. My house generally goes to sleep right at 10 and sometimes later. And the weekends are just a whole other deal all together.  Here is a picture of him from Saturday sleeping in a shopping cart at the grocery store after a big birthday party.
