DS1 went off the boil yesterday. Lots of screaming, away with the fairies, super stimmy. Didn't go to sleep until late then was up at 5.45am screaming because cbeebies wasn't on. Very week before full moonish if you ask me. So when is it?
ah good should be back to normal soon then. Just took him for a walk. Complete nightmare he kept slamming the breaks on, was trying to go the other way, tried to run in front of a bus on the road. It was more of a drag than a walk- and he is soooo strong. Thank god I had him on his belt. Otherwise no chance.
I don't know how it works either- but ds1 now sleeps very well- he only ever wakes up the week before the full moon- and can be awake hours. Funnily enough my dp's person said today that she is affected by the moon- fells a bit anxious and flitty and wakes up. Just like ds1!
Today he's been all over the place absolutely away wiith the fairies. Have to say everthing to him twice, he won't walk in the street (is all over the place) stimming with spinny things constantly and throwing everything.
[lurk] My (NT) grandad used to sleepwalk and rant around the house every full moon to the point where my Gran used to watch the calender and remove all the ornaments in preparation for his nocturnal wanderings. Point is - the full moon def has an impact on sleeping patterns. Sorry you're having a hard time Jimjams.
dd2 behaviour is bad this week. she has been waking up crying the last 2 nights, mroe than usual. i am expecting the screaming to start in the next few nights, she has terrible night rages, like nigh terrors but she lashes out.
Aw - wee man, Jimjams. DS used to fall asleep on the floor behind his door and I couldn't get at him to move him without just about knocking him unconscious with the aforementioned door . Actually, I've been a bit of a bisom myself the last few days and this thread is making me feel much better - I hadn't thought it might be the full moon.
DS has been truly awful at the beginning of this week. He was great at the weekend but when I picked him up from the playscheme on Monday at 3pm the mood had changed. He then howled and cried for most of the time until 9pm last night when I knocked him out with some stuff the Paediatrician gave me for when I'm desperate. 2.5 days of it, sometimes bubbling under, sometimes low level and quite a lot hysterical. I was thinking of that thread about the AS mother and the things the kind neighbour hears. If you'd heard the noises coming from our house on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights you'd have been onto the Social, and I mostly wasn't even in the same room as him! Today he's been great....! Hope it lasts.
OK changed my mind. He has been manic since my last post. Is now upstairs trying to get out of his room shrieking and laughing manically and jumping up and down. <<sigh>>- he's been going to bed really well for the last few months.
Ds1 has been sleeping badly the last couple of nights and it seems to have had a knock-on effect on his general behaviour. Yesterday he ran off screaming with me running to catch up. Luckily a very kind lady was able to stop him running straight out into the road.
Ds2 is hyper-boy today. He's spent a good part of the day running from one end of the house to the other while imitating Basil Brush. There are only so many "Ha ha ha! Boom! Boom!" renitions that I can tolerate in a day.
