238 Those genes…

April 24, 2009

Dude doesn’t need to sleep much.. He keeps sleeping 1-2 hours less than me every night – and of course he is tired – but so am I. He would love to sleep more than he does.. but he can sleep 5 hours/night without falling into pieces… In busy times – this is actually good. Hey.. we can sleep when we get older – right?

Though the problem is – that this low need of sleep-gene seems to pop up in our kids too.. which is less good when they are still very young. Our 4-year-old is sleeping 9-10 hours/night.. which is really not much for his age. Now seems like the “baby” has the same thing going on. Since a few weeks she refuses to take a nap some days.. so it’s more or less every second day that she is not napping. Isn’t that very early for a 18-months-old kid?

well.. at least I can blame dude for those habits.. and make him go up when the kids wake up in the night – because he needs less sleep.. and it’s “his fault” that the kids don’t need to sleep.


ยค 144 Well needed rest

October 26, 2008

Today is Sunday.. Holidays are over and we are back to routine. The kids are back in Kindergarten, and I’m home alone with the baby.

Today I don’t do so much.. this is my morning of well needed rest. The baby has been napping now for a couple of hours.. and I do nothing! Feels great.. I have to recharge my batteries after this last month.. I don’t even feel bad about not doing anything serious. I need this. But only for today. I have a lot to do this week.. and the next.. and the next.. until June.

So now.. coffee.. just resting, having a great time.. listening to the voices in my head.. I didn’t hear them for a while because of all the noise!! Aaaah. so.. only the chocolate missing!
