How to time manage with little sleep?

I am a mom of two beautiful toddlers. I have a two and three year old. I work overnight so that I am with them in the morning. I am also a single mom. I don’t want to do daycare yet. I do nap in the morning for about two hours before they up. I nap another two to three hours during their nap time. I am always tired and I would like to do more with them. I don’t have much support. Any idea or tips that could help? It’s hard to have me time when I just want to sleep.

    I’m impressed that you’re physically surviving on that little sleep. What if the 3 year old stops napping?? It might be time for a few hours of help a day so you can sleep

    Wow! Those kids are so lucky to have such a hard working momma! I am amazed that you’ve been functioning like this for so long. I think it might be a good idea to look into hiring a few hours of help in the mornings so that you can get some more rest. In order to continue to take such great care of those kids, you need to take care of yourself too!

    yes! When you are at your best, your kids get the best of you too. it's a win win for everyone if you get a few hours of help in the day so you can get proper rest. night shift is already a strain on the body and your sleep is so important. don't feel bad about getting childcare for a couple hours. good luck!
