Oh hepcat,  you simply do not understand what a herculean feat it is for a married man and father of children to achieve such a glorious and amazing length of rest. 

Words like unprecedented, incomprehensible, statistically-impossible come to mind!

Having just pulled this off myself two weekends ago, I have to say it is worth crowing about.  I was telling people right and left, and I was in a great mood.

I don't even remember the last time I slept for more than 8 hours at a stretch.  Even if - by some miracle - my sleep doesn't get interrupted by Mrs. Gratch, Little B, the dog, or the cats, my body naturally wakes up at around 5-6 hours.

Now that I'm a parent, just 7 hours of unbroken sleep is enough to get me this excited.

On a business trip recently got to have an evening free of kid obligations.  I got to go to bed at the hour of my choosing, and wake up whenever I felt like it.  I even had those heavy duty hotel curtains that block out so much light you have no idea when the sun rises.

I woke up in the morning, felt completely rested, felt no need to sleep in further.  I looked at the clock and it turned out to be 7:30am.

Nine?  I usually get 7 (although I do have bouts of insomnia that pops up every few weeks for a day or two) and if I sleep more than that, I actually feel a bit tired the following day.  I know a few others that have the same issue, so I wonder why that is.

Yeah between seven and nine is usual unless I go out that night, which happens once or twice a week.  Typically asleep sometime between 10-11 and always up around 7am.

looking back I think I average about 6 hours a night. I usually go to bed between midnight and 1am and am usually up by 6:30am.  of course on days I'm off that varies; I may be up until 6am and out of bed by noon.  if I do go to bed around 10pm I inevitably wake up around 3 or 4am.

The kid actually, at this point, has very little to do with my lack of sleep. It is mostly my complete lack if skill at sleeping. All this will change in a month with kid #2, I am sure... but at least I will have been in training for it.

Greta is an awesome name, though to fit with her older brother, I'd go with Beatrice, and name your third "Good".
