Rough Night

      2 Comments on Rough Night

We all had a great day yesterday but it might have been a bit too exciting for Elliott. Elliott and Emmett were both bouncing off the walls last night and we had a terrible time settling them down.

Bedtime was quite difficult because they were so overstimulated by all the excitement.

It was so bad that Elliott never fell asleep last night. He tried and was on Melatonin but he was too amped up to shutdown.

I was up with him until almost 4 AM but finally passed out shortly after.



It’s going to be a really long day because Elliott will likely have a rough day because he’s beyond tired. Thankfully, he’s in a decent mood. I suppose it’s all about the little things today..

    I’m glad the boys had a good time. It’s always good for kids to get out and be active and be device-free for a while. I have a question about Elliott not sleeping last night- I get that there are issues with overstimulation, but would it be as bad if the kids were more used to doing ‘exciting’ things? Aside from walking at the garden center they don’t really do a lot outside of the house so something like yesterday is a huge deal. If they did stuff more often, maybe it would be easier to decompress. If your sister is a runner then she might be willing to help with getting them out and about. Just a thought.

      Kim, the boys get out all the time. I don’t always write about it. What we don’t do is get to spend a great deal of time in our yard.

      As for Elliott, he has these sleep disturbances sometimes. Things like holidays etc will have a similar impact.
