Life with two kids: The quality of sleep

Sophia brought home a cold in the middle of last week, and it's been going through the family, with Sophia being snot filled Thursday-Saturday, and Jane and Gideon being sick Sunday and today.

Last night this led to Gideon sleeping even worse than his usual "awake every two hours". I had to use the nose sucker twice to clear things out. And a few times I was woken up by what sounded like an old man drowning in their own phlegm.

Sophia, on the other hand, I got over to sleep just before 10pm, and then slept all the way through to 6:30. Which is absolutely unheard of, to the point where I snuck carefully in to her room at 4am to make sure she was still breathing. Hopefully this isn't just because she's getting over her cold, but is instead a sign that she's getting more comfortable with her new bed. We shall see.
