Amy Poehler Went From Late Nights To 'Early To Bed' — Sound Familiar?

The former ‘Saturday Night Live’ actress is adjusting to a whole new sleep schedule thanks to two demanding little ones!

Amy Poehler, 39, and her husband, fellow comedian Will Arnett, 41, admit the inevitable — that long gone are the days when they could stay up late and sleep in together.

They are now parents of two boys Archie William Emerson, 2½, and Abel James, 9 months. “I stopped being a vampire. Before kids, there wasn’t a night for 10 years that Will and I went to sleep before 2 a.m.,” Amy tells Parade.

“I’d sleep until noon or one and I thought 10:30 a.m. was early. Now I’m sound asleep by 11:30 every night and the kids wake us up around seven — on a good day.”

Being a mom of two rambunctious little boys is no piece of cake, but the Parks and Recreation star does have a few tricks, such as her ever-amusing Blackberry, although it’s not 100% fool-proof: “. . .bring one that’s a few seasons old for them to play with and they look at you like, ‘Nice try.’ Even kids under two seem to have a sense for technology and what the latest product is.”

The funny mom might be short on sleep, but her career and family life are far from suffering.

So, Hollymoms, can you relate to Amy’s early-to-bed, early-to-rise lifestyle?
