I desperately want to go to sleep but my youngest with #Autism can’t sleep tonight 

Gavin’s the only one of the three boys who was able to fall asleep tonight. Elliott finally crashed about 11:00 pm and was really frustrated because he was tired but couldn’t sleep.

Then of course there’s Emmett. It’s currently about 1:00 am and he’s still not able to sleep.

It’s looking like it’s going to be a really long night. 

These kids have had a really challenging week because there’s been a great deal of change and kids on the Autism Spectrum tend to not do so well with change. 

I’m laying in bed trying to help Emmett fall asleep and he’s currently climbing the headboard like a little spidermonkey…

We do a lot with music in this house and so I’m playing this song on repeat right now, hoping it will sorta calm him down.. I happen to love this song and used to sing it to him when he was little.

I just want to get some sleep and I’m not sure that it’s going to happen tonight. I’m not going to give up just yet. 👍😴
