It works for us. And more importantly, it works for our kids.
That doesn't sound like a lot of time for anyone, and it also sounds like you are losing sleep.

As they get older and get more school activities, their bedtime will move up accordingly, and you will lose the evening hours. It sounds like it might be possible for you to blend your husband's GF with yours, but that doesn't help your loves.
