So, I went out side with my 2 little girls, so they could play in the pool (just a little 1 foot plastic one). I was sitting on my swing, by the pool, and the next thing I know I wake up. 1.5 hours have passed and both girls are in the house

So much for being a watchful mom:

I am so wiped out, just wish I could sleep better at night, I sleep OK until about 3 or so, but then am awake for a couple of hours and some days don't get back to sleep before the girls get up:

I wasn't really worried - we live in the middle of nowhere and my 8 year old was in the house playing a computer game. I just couldn't believe I fell asleep - and sound asleep while I was watching them. It was such a nice day, only in the high 80s after 3+ weeks of 110 weather, so we have not spent a lot of time playing outside lately

Glad everyone's ok Was your house wrecked?

I cleaned my living room spotless the other day and then sat down to rest on the couch. I woke up an hour later to brown sugar covering the floor, toys strewn about, and papers everywhere. My carpet is still sticky. So, I hear you on the fatigue thing, I can't believe I just fell asleep like that. One second I was tired but awake and laughing at the kids as they showed me a new dance they'd made up, the next I woke up to that mess.
