An interesting theory on dreaming

My daughter just explained to me that she woke up four times during the night last night, but was able to immediately fall back asleep each time.

Curious, I asked her why she thought she kept waking up (since she’s getting a bit sick, I thought it was probably cold-related).

Her theory is that she was having shorter dreams than usual, and when a dream ends, there’s a quiet period before the next one begins in which you can hear all the scary things that are happening in your room.

Each time she heard all the vampires and scary things creeping around, she had to wake up for a second to check it out.

And here I thought it was simply the inability to breathe through her nose.
