The benefits of sleep are many: A healthier heart, a better immune system, and a stronger mind. But when you're a mom of two, a good night's rest is probably just a fantasy.

In an interview with ELLE magazine, TV star Amy Poehler hit the parental nail on the head:

“Now that I have kids, I’m up at 5:30AM no matter what. Sleep at this point is just a concept, something I’m looking forward to investigating in the future. "

But, Poehler doesn't let her lack of snooze time hold her back:

"I’d like to say that I maintain that same sense of play and creativity and spontaneity – of being able to get into a room with people and say, ‘Let’s waste some time.’ When you’re a creative person, even when you’re in a position of power, you still have to be able to straddle both worlds.”

If the actress's idea of creativity is impersonating her 3-year-old, then we sure hope so!

Poehler will be featured in the magazine's fourth annual Women in TV Issue alongside Zooey Deschanel, Mindy Kaling and Allison Williams.
