This is how I found my little sleep walker this morning! I think he just moves in his sleep, kicks the blankets off and then he gets cold and wakes up. Or he walks out of his bed and makes a huge mess of things and then just crashes! And because he is DeafBlind he does have balance issues so he might not really know how to get back into bed. Either way… It’s becoming a hide and seek adventure trying to find my kid in the morning. But HE SLEPT!
As I stood there watching him he reached up and grabbed my leg. Now, he was snoring away, totally out and NOT playing possum… (I know how to tell these days… After all its been 10 1/2 years of this) once he felt I was there he stopped moving again. So he felt me standing there staring and he just sensed I was there!!!!
Ok the reason I mentioned this… There have been times when I’m totally asleep very soundly and I suddenly wake up to a kid just standing there watching me sleeping, wondering if they dare wake me up because they are scared or feel sick, or can’t sleep. They don’t say anything or even move they JUST stare…
Yes mom and dad I know right now you are thinking “payback time!” I know my brother and I did this to you as well… And how mom would scream because she would wake up and realize a kid was staring at her just 2 inches from her face!!!
But this is another example….
And then a silent photo… Someone watching and no flash…
Yep! You guessed it NOW I’m awake! Ok now the winner gets to carry the 50 pound lug of a bug up to his bed… Thanks so much Colt. Now I can breathe… And now my neck hurts again. Shoot!!!
“Kodiak Kodiak please go to sleep tonight”
“Ok, Mommy! I’ll lie on the edge of my bed and soon drop off”
