sleepwalking

We have had some issues in the past few years with BB sleepwalking. Not really issues, but it’s freaky nonetheless. One time, I was sound asleep and woke up because I felt someone staring at me. You know, that feeling. I opened my eyes to see him standing there, just waiting for me to wake up. Then, the gibberish started. I picked him up and tucked him back into his bed. Another time, he brought me a book to read to him after he had already been asleep for hours.

It’s so ODD. Really. To have someone walking around, eyes open, but not really conscious. I’m afraid that one of these days he will fall down the stairs or something. It’s a long way down from his room to the main floor!

So, last night, about an hour after he had gone to bed, he walks down the stairs and over to me on my chair where I am watching TV. He begins talking, only I can’t really understand what he is saying. Thanks to some quick-thinking on my part, I grab my phone and start recording, so I can show him in the a.m. He NEVER remembers any of it. I ask him questions and he answers them (sort of). Only he doesn’t know who I am. So.Weird. And when I ask him what day it is? I think he is trying to say “Monday” but it comes out sounding like German or something. Hah!

This seems to happen when he is overly tired. We had just completed our Run the ‘Hood 5K after school yesterday, and he ran the entire 3.1 miles, so I know he was exhausted.

He gave me his permission to post this video, so have a giggle {sorry for all the background noise}:

 

My twins are raising money for charity: water, and would be so happy if you could help:
Ashton’s Thrilling Drilling Campaign
Bridger’s Clean Water for Christmas Campaign

    My oldest son did this too! When he was overtired! Make sure you secure the doors, one time we caught him out in the garage! That was freaking! I hope he’s out grown it now or he will be doing it a lot now that he’s in boot camp!

      NO KIDDING! I hope he doesn’t do it at bootcamp, I can see the other guys having fun with that one. ;p
