The night is dark and full of terrors…

Imagine that its the middle o the night. The house is silent. And out of nowhere, you hear a creepy laugh in the distance. You may also hear random mumblings and things shuffling. Sometimes even yelling. I think nothing of it now but occasionally someone who isn’t used to it will hear it and gets scared or weirded out.

It’s Joel. Laughing, out of the blue… just because. No reason. I suppose he has a lot of restless nights. Some nights he makes a lot more noise than others. Lots of nights he seems to be having arguments with himself other nights seems to be telling himself jokes and he just laughs and laughs.

Does anyone deal with this?

Sometimes he really does keep me up but mostly I find it cute and funny. He struggled a lot with sleeping, he becomes sort an insomniac. Things have gotten a little better, he was on melatonin but we’re in the process of trying different stuff behaviorally.  In the meantime, I’ll enjoy his creepiness at night.
