Hi I was just wondering if there were any rn's out there that worked the graveyard shift with smaller children like 1st graders. The reason for my question is like how did u sleep during the day because kids are only in school for like 6 hrs. Then u have to pick them up wake up out of ur sleep and then watch them. Can u maybe sleep during your shift for like an hour or so? :smilecoffeeIlovecof
I have a 1st grader, and a 2 year old. I get home, bring him to school, (see my g/f's chat & hang) bring my 2yo home(she walks with us) and we nap, wake up get a 3yo(g/f's son) from his school, take them both to m:smilecoffeeIlovecof y house, lunch, nap for 2 hours, go get my son, and the 3yo's sister(same grade school) everyone one gts a snack, homework, I start dinner, Daddy comes home, the other kids leave, I nap again 730-930pm, before I leave for work at 10 pm. At work, I have 1 hour for my lunch break.. set the handy dandy alarm in my cell phone..... and ta daa!!! I've collectively gotten 5 hours sleep!
I do that 3 days a week, and it has worked out so far. Thank God I have sucessfully passed on the sleep gene!
On weekends, I nap in the mornin when I get home, and have my day, and nap before work again. wouldnt change a thing right now....although I did forget which job I was going to the other day, and had to refer to my calendar of activities to be sure I was headed in the right direction!!
coffeee......coffee coffee coffee!!!!!
