Terror in the Night

If a child screams in the middle of the night, why is the mother the only person who hears and attends to the child?

Daughter has been having what she calls bad dreams and screaming and crying every night. This comes and goes with her; sometimes she'll sleep through the night just fine, but since we all got home from our travels she's been screaming and crying (real tears) every night.

Son has never done this, so this is something entirely new for our household. Only I'm the one who hears Daughter.

Do we as women lose the ability to sleep soundly forever? It used to be I could sleep through raging thunder storms, but now it's like I'm on the edge of a deep sleep.

But don't worry, every once in a while I make Husband get up and soothe Daughter. Why should I have all the fun?

He should help comfort her too.

The Branch cries out too but only very briefly then he goes back to sleep. It's hard to imagine a toddler having nightmares.
