Poor Elliott is unable to sleep tonight

It’s about 1:30 AM and believe it or not, Lizze and I were in bed shortly after 10:00 PM. Elliott is unable to sleep and shows no signs of being tired. He’s still in his bed and I’m trying to sleep in mine but it’s hard for me to feel comfortable sleeping if I know one of the boys are still awake.

I feel like he’s more likely to fall asleep if I keep on him until he does. If left to his own devices, he be on his tablet, trying to entertain himself quietly, until he’s tired.

The poor kids been in bed since 9:00 PM, with 10mg of Melatonin on board. He’s been laying there listening to music, which normally helps him sleep. I hate the idea of him being up all night and the best chance of him falling asleep will be for us to camp out in the living room.

There doesn’t appear to be anything wrong, but he’s been running a fever this weekend and maybe he’s under the weather.

Either way, he’s made a valiant effort to fall asleep. I think we’ll move to the living room and see if the change helps him to beat this little boutique of Insomnia.
