Today, while trying to sleep after a night shift, workers came to hook up city sewage service, firing up drills and shouting. An hour later, my child woke me up to tattle on her sister. Just as I was drifting to sleep yet again, the smoke alarm battery started chirping. I give up. FML

Earplugs will become your best friends. but, seriously, start looking for a different shift job. people who have children shouldn't do nights because you will never get enough sleep to function properly. I have worked the graveyard shift myself off and on for 13 years. no kids, and that is the only way I have the chance to sleep decently.
