  • Get up before they do - Let the healing begin with a shower, aspirin, and caffeine. It's easier to do without the little ones hanging around.
  • Take shifts - It really helps to share the responsibility. Once your shift is over, it's nap time.
  • Have a pajama day - The kids always like spending time with you in your big bed. Sounds like a good day to watch movies and relax.
  • Hydrate - Water can help you fight off the hangover faster.
  • Embrace screen time - Looks like it's the perfect time to let your child use your iPad to binge watch their favorite cartoons.
  • Play quiet games - Games are a good distraction but make sure they are calm ones.
  • Call for reinforcements - A visit to Grandma's house is never a bad thing.
  • Bribe them - You don't want to make this a habit, but in extreme situations, it's very useful.
  • Nap when your kids nap - Hopefully, your kids are good nappers. This could give you some series recovery time.
  • Have an emergency new toy stash - Nothing can get your children's attention like a brand new toy to play with.
  • Arrange a swap with other parents - A friend can help you out for a few hours and you can return the favor it the future.

Good luck.
