First, your not baby-sitting, your parenting. They are your children, right? I don't know if your looking for advice or what, you didn't say. But your kids will get better and then you will get more sleep. For now though, coffee is your friend.

You need to rethink the "noway am I sleeping during the day"... When you have a newborn, you need to grab naps while you can. Even a 1 hour nap here and there can help you get by until the littlest one is sleeping longer.
There's a reason that parenting is exhausting! Keep up the good work being an involved father.
haha!! mommy42boys, that's exactly what I was going to say about the baby sitting remark!! as for the OP sleep when they sleep. good luck!

Exactly :-) Why after three years do you still consider it "baby sitting"?
>>For now though, coffee is your friend.<<
Or Darjeeling tea :-)
