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.
