09-20-15 Strange Bed Fellow

It took two hours to get my girl to sleep last night. She kept dozing off and then coughing and waking herself up. When she was finally out I thought I was in the clear. But no sooner had I come downstairs to relax when Big E start screaming for me. Worried he would wake up his big sister, we ran in and grabbed him. To keep the peace I decided to let him sleep with me. 

Believe it or not this was the first time Big E spent the night in my bed. When he was little I used to try to get him to sleep with me when he didn't feel well, or during a nap, but he always wanted his bed and would fuss until I put him there, so I really didn't know what to expect when I laid him down beside me. 

Apparently when he is sleeping, Big E never stops moving. Seriously, this kid tosses and turns all night long. He also talks in his sleep... A lot. And giggles. He giggles in his sleep. Which is really kind of creepy! I mean, I'm just minding my business being fast asleep when all of a sudden there is some quiet cackling beside me. Gah!! Also... He falls out of the bed. 

I have no idea how this child gets any rest at all.
