My kids (yes, plural) slept for two hours this afternoon

Sometimes I swear my kids sit around thinking up ways to make me a liar.

I put both Benjamin and Miriam down for a naps around 1:00 and he was asleep by 1:30 while she was almost asleep. I set my alarm for 3:30 thinking I wouldn't need it because the kids would surely wake me up before two hours was up.

But then my alarm did go off and it was awesome.

My kids were still sleeping. Both of them.

Benjamin's awake now. He stumbled out of his room a few minutes after I got out of bed. But Miriam's still sleeping. I'm torn between waking her up so she'll still go to bed tonight (she hasn't taken a nap in ages) and just letting her sleep because she's actually sleeping and not coughing.

I must say that having a quiet house for two hours was amazing—even if all I did for those two hours was sleep and my house is still a complete mess and even if it means my two little ones are so sick.

  1. So I am just wondering, is your brown-haired child less prone to illness than your blondies? I don't know if it is true, but I read that somewhere when my kids were little (when I just had one blonde and one brunette) and the blonde one DID tend to catch every little bug wafting around, compared to the brunette. Something (else) to research!
