Crazy Talk

Snacks has been talking in his sleep for as long as I can remember. I used to run in to his room when he sat up and try to make sense of what he was saying. I'd try to get him to repeat himself; tell me what he needed and try to calm him if he was agitated, which typically didn't work.

Until I finally learned that even though his eyes are open and he's sitting up in bed, he's ASLEEP and not rational. So now I just do the best I can to try to get him to lie back down without engaging him in conversation.

Tonight when he sat up and gestured to me and said, "I need something fat...," I just kissed him, laid him back down and said, "Okay, honey, I'll go right out and get that for you."

And back to sleep he went.

in my house. I would have just assumed he needed his daddy.

What a curious request....glad you don't have night terrors or such to contend with.
I love the little red shoes, I did that for Micheyla when she was little too.

If it makes you feel any better...Monkey Butt sleeps with his eyes open and Bry-onicle had night terrors until he was three.

Sounds to me like you did just fine!
