#Autism Parenting and the battle with insomnia 

I fought a losing battle with insomnia once again last night but I did fall asleep around 4 am and I’m grateful for at least getting that..  ☺ 

Lizze didn’t sleep well either and ended up downstairs at some point because she needed to sleep propped up and that’s much easier on the couch. 

While she was downstairs, Emmett climbed into our bed and glued himself to my arm, at some point after I did finally fall asleep. 

As a result of all this lack of sleep, we got a late start and things didn’t go as smoothly as they could have. Emmett in particular, had a very unpleasant meltdown, not that any meltdowns are pleasant. He did however, get off to school with his shoes and socks in place. ☺ 

Gavin’s sleeping, I’m exhausted as well but my goal is to push through it and not take a nap. 

Lizze is not feeling well and is laying down also. She’s pretty miserable and I’m hoping this bug, whatever it is, moves on quickly.
