the myth of the 8 hour sleep
I had never heard of this before I read this post over at Althouse
It certainly explains a lot with my erratic sleepiness and I will no longer fight the early first sleep. It also reminds me that for about a year when my daughter was 3 she would fall asleep at 5pm, and then wake me up about 3~4am and be up for the rest of the day. I quickly adjusted and it wasn't long before I was falling asleep around 7pm. I do believe that those months gave me the best sleep I ever had.
now excuse me while i go for my first sleep
