My little sleepwalker woke me up again. This time he actually made it to the door of my room (and scared me half-to-death because we have had another rash of break-ins in the neighborhood).

Sleepwalking is very creepy. Ben seems to be awake but he is oddly both very driven and disengaged. Curiously enough he is always looking for something. "I can't find Nik." "I can't find it." Tonight it was, "I can't find someone to play with." I can usually get him back to bed pretty easily. I just say, "Ok. Go get in bed" and he does.

One night I came into his room and he was sitting upright in bed and staring. That was REALLY creepy. I told him, "Go to sleep!" and he fell straight back onto his pillow and was out instantly.
