Missing Underwear and Buzzing in the Dark

Why do interesting things always happen at our house in the middle of the night?? Why can't I get a good night's sleep like normal people?

Here's my conversation with Noah at 3:00am last night.

I'm getting up to go to the bathroom and run into Noah in the hallway.
ME: Hon, what do you need?
NOAH: Sometimes, I don't know how, but some way, somehow I'll wake up in the middle of the night and my underwear are gone.
(sure enough, he is completely naked---my older boys only sleep in their underwear in the summer)
ME: Ok, let's head back to your room...........Where are your underwear?
NOAH: I don't know..............oh, here they are in my bed.
ME: Do you want to put them back on??
NOAH: No, I'll sleep naked............and will you lay with me for awhile??? I'm a little scared, I think I just saw a big bee buzzing around.
(keep in mind it's completely dark with the exception of a little nightlight....oh, and we ARE sleeping in the house, not outside)
Later in the night I get woken up again because he had a bad dream about 3 bees buzzing around and he had a headache (Must have been all the buzzing).

We were also up with Aiden for awhile because his allergies or something have kicked in and he was all congested and coughing. Todd was also up half the night all nervous about this triathlon he's putting on Saturday so he got up around 2:30am to work on things. I think we're becoming nocturnal.....except we don't sleep during the day either!

Okay the undewear thing had me cracking up! I can just hear him explaining things.

And we hear you about the sleepless nights. Must be in the air. We've had about a week of lost sleep for various reasons. I'm not as used to it as I once was.

Tell Todd to stop worrying. The triathalon will be great I'm sure:)

I remember too many sleepless nights with Nate...could not handle them now. I loved the underwear talk with Noah.....the things they do in their sleep.

Ohhhh maaannn....I know that feeling! Unfortunatly when our family becomes nocturnal, we also become completely looney during the day because the lack of sleep makes us lose brain cells. Naked humor always cracks me up though. that was a LOL moment....he...he...

Cody was my "naked sleeper". He went through a phase that he would take off his PJ's and only have on his mittens when I'd got to check on the boys at night. Nothing like the butt end of your toddler staring at you in the night to bring a smile to your face.

I hope Noah has forgotten all about the bees by now.

Love the talk you guys had. Little boys rock. Mine always wakes up differently from what I dressed him in.
