I’ve shared things like this before but I’ve never seen Gavin actually do this… Gavin does what I affectionately call creepy sleep. Typically, this refers to anytime he’s sleeping with his eyes open.
It’s really disconcerting to check on your child before you go to be and find them laying there with their eyes open.
We’ve kinda gotten used to that happening on occasion. However, this morning marked a new level of even creepier sleeping. We were watching a movie this afternoon and I looked over at Gavin and he was sitting there like this.
He was definitely sleeping because I woke him up trying making sure he was okay.
In fairness, this could have been an absence seizure, because he does have epilepsy. However, we haven’t seen any seizure activity in a really long time. Although truthfully, he could be still having absence seizures and we just haven’t witnessed them.
Either way, Gavin has a long history of sleeping with his eyes open. Do any of your kids do this? Aside from being a bit creepy, is this a sign of anything?
