Agreed! He's getting 8.5-9.5 hours of sleep, including dozing on couch. Obviously, 8 hours is ideal, but it is not always possible. Could he try going to bed at 2:30-3 and getting up at 10? Honestly, if I were you I wouldn't even spend that time with him, though... If he got up at 10, I'd take a nap!
I know working is tough, but lots of people work 10 hour days. Maybe if you talked to him, he could make some small adjustments to help protect your health (mental and physical).
Sara, yay for Shay! I get up at 5:30-6 for work, so I don't mind Jasper getting up early. He's usually at daycare at 7:30. On the weekends, we just let him roam around the bedroom destroying things while we get a bit of extra sleep. (It's a safe space!)

I don't think it's fair that he expects (or wants) you to stay awake at night when he could get up a little earlier. Really, your sleep is pretty darn important. You can't be a wife or a mother if you're never sleeping!
