Photostory Friday - The World On His Head

My biggest complaint about Aaron is that he is a very poor sleeper and has been from the start. Apart from being extremely difficult to put to sleep when he was an infant, he is also an incredibly light sleeper.

Apart from the obvious things like flushing the toilet or making too much noise when closing a door, he has also been woken up by the neighbor sneezing and my father stirring his Milo a little too enthusiastically downstairs.

After two and a half years of practice, he's getting better. There are bad days and good days. On a bad day, he'll wake up if you put the slightest amount of pressure on his mattress. On a good day, amazing things like this happen:

The entire world map had come unstuck and flopped down on him!

He was still in the same position that I left him in. AND, he went on to sleep another hour. I couldn't believe it!!!

That's pretty impressive! What is the "Milo" your father is stirring?

Amanda said...

You don't have Milo in the US??? I never knew that!
Its a chocolate-y/malt-y drink that is very popular in Malaysia. In our house, it is the coffee equivalent.

I never realized it until tonight but it originated from Australia!

Your stuck. If you sound proof his room then you won't be able to hear him and it will drive you just as nuts.

Ha! Now that is amazing. Maybe he was just really, really tired. LOL!

Kids are nothing if not inconveniently inconsistent.

Love the title!
I don't know if it is a possibility for you, but we use white noise machines in our kids' rooms to help them sleep more soundly. It just sounds like a fan, but it keeps them from being able to hear a lot of the noises that are outside of their rooms. It has honestly been the best money we have spent on kid items.

Thank goodness for small miracles,huh?!

Sometimes the pressure of the world can do that to you!

What a funny snap! Do you think he was learning World Geography by osmosis? Maybe that's why he's such a light sleeper...he's got a lot on his mind! But on this particular day, looks like he sold his soul to the Sleep Monster, if that little problem with the map didn't bother him!

Miss Peach sleeps with a pillow on her head...I don't know why, or how?
