It’s a very sleepy Monday in this house😴
Chloe has been sleeping pretty well since the middle of last week. I’m not sure what happened last night, but she was up by 1:30 am and didn’t go back to sleep.
Needless to say we are all tired this morning. I never know what makes her wake up. I asked her if she was tired and she said “No”. She is the Energizer Bunny. Lol. She is sitting here beside me writing on her Magnadoodle, laughing and smiling. I’m not complaining since usually she is extra grumpy when she doesn’t sleep. Depending on how she does the rest of the day I may have her nap (give her 1/2 dose of her medication).
Sleep is a common issue with children that are Autistic. Chloe started having sleep problems around 15 months of age. She stopped napping and started waking up more at night. The Pediatrician didn’t start her sleep medication until she was 4. We tried melatonin, but it only worked for a short time and then had the opposite effect. I really wish it had worked😔
So we are pushing through another sleepy day.
