Things That Go Bump In The Night

Lately Zach seems to have been somewhat of a sleepwalker. Ever since he was potty-trained at 2.5 years, he has consistently gotten up at least once in the night to go to the bathroom. Drew often gets up once a night to potty, too, but not as consistently as Zach. It's easy to tell who has gotten up, because Zach tends to stomp into the bathroom in his sleepy haze, and he opens the toilet loudly. Drew, on the other hand, amazingly travels to and from the bathroom a little more quietly. At nighttime Zach also leaves the lid up and doesn't flush, but Drew puts the lid down and does flush, and then Drew often shuts his bedroom door a little loudly. So it's common for us to hear Zach get up either shortly after we've gone to bed, or sometimes even before we head upstairs to go to bed. That was the case both Monday and Tuesday of this week. Monday night I heard Zach get up while I was down in the living room, probably close to 10 o'clock. When I went upstairs a little later to go to bed, I checked in on him, and he was dead asleep in bed, but his closet door was open and the light was on. And on Tuesday night, Mike and I woke up around 11:30 because our bathroom light was on, and neither of us had gotten up.

Those two nights were weird, but not too crazy. Other times Zach has gotten up to potty and then wandered into our room very confused, and we basically send him back to bed. On Wednesday night, Mike headed upstairs to get ready for bed first and immediately called me up and instructed me to bring the camera. He had noticed that both Zach and Drew's doors were slightly ajar. This is what we found.

Zach is curled up on the left, and Drew is stretched out on the right. This is Drew's bed. We're not sure how Zach climbed in and over Drew without waking him up, but he appears to have done it.

We contemplated moving Zach, mostly because we were worried Drew would wake up and, being in one of his moods, yell at Zach for sleeping in his bed. Or the possibility was that Drew and Zach would wake up, get into a fit of giggles, and really struggle to get back to sleep. Neither of those situations would be that big of a deal, except that I really didn't feel like being woken up in the middle of the night. However, we ultimately decided to just leave Zach there and see what happened.

Before we went to bed I snuck in for a couple more pictures. I'm really bummed this next one turned out so blurry, because I thought it was very cute how they were laying in basically the same position.

When I got up at 6:00 on Wednesday morning, I went to check on the boys. Both boys' doors were shut tight, which was a clue to me that something had changed since I'd gone to sleep. Sure enough, Drew was asleep in his bed, and Zach was asleep in his bed. When Zach got up, I asked him if anything weird had happened in the night. At first he said no, but then he remembered and said, "Oh yeah! I woke up and I was in Drew's room!" I asked what he did next, and he said, "Oh, I just got up and went back to my own bed." Drew never had a clue about any of it until I showed him the pictures.

I half expected Zach to end up in Jake's room on Thursday night, but thankfully he stayed in his own bed and nothing strange happened.
