Tales from the bed

Mind's out of the gutter folks. There will be no "Too Much Info" stories going on here. Actually, these are stories about Adam. I can't remember the last time there was a post about Adam, but I thought this was too funny not to share.

Everyone knows about sleep walking, and talking. But have you even actually experienced it? Thank goodness Adam doesn't sleep walk, that would freak me out. He does sleep talk, or giggle rather. There have been many nights when I'm woken up to him just giggling. I quickly figure out he is asleep, when i look at the clock and it's 2 o'clock. I will, just to humor myself, ask him sometimes what is so funny, but he rarely answers me. Sad. A few weeks ago we had an "incident" which has spurred me to write this post.

See, I hadn't ever really experienced a conversation with him in his sleep until we moved into this house. The first one I can really remember went something like this.

Standing on the bed, looking out the window above it...." Do you see them?"
See WHO?
Do you see them?
freaking out at this point because it's the middle of the night... SEE WHO?
The aliens?

Good Lord, he is asleep during this. Freaking me out. You see, MOST of Adam's dreams are about the world coming to an end unless he can fight off all the aliens, monsters, or whatever else is going to kill him. The VAST majority of his dreams are scenarios like this.

The most recent episode, that is appropriate to share on this blog, was a couple of weeks ago. I was woken up by a shaking of the bed. I rolled over to find Adam sitting up, waving his hand in the air. I thought he was pointing at the monitor, which he wasn't. It went something like this.

"What are you doing?"
"HIGH FIVE!!!!!!
"High five for what?"
"High five for solar panels!"
"Are you going to remember this in the morning?"
"Ok, so I'll be mad at you in the morning then."

Then we rolled back over and went to sleep. He vaguely remember this encounter the next morning. They are great, because I , for the most part can go back to sleep pretty quickly, so it doesn't really bother me, and I can make fun of him the next morning!
