Sleepwalking Hubby

Some of you may know that Travis is a somnambulist (sleep walker) but doesn't have very many episodes.  The last time he did it was when I was pregnant and I found him sleeping on the couch at 3 in the morning during one of my many mid-sleep bathroom runs.  I thought I'd been snoring or something so he camped out on the couch.  In the morning he asked me how he got there.

I've never actually seen him sleep walk until just now.  He tends to talk to me while he's sleeping though so we have a "code word" that he has to tell me before I believe he's awake.  He typically doesn't even remember the word when he IS awake but the way he responds to the question always lets me know whether or not he is actually sleeping.  Our conversation from just a moment ago was just so cute I want to share it with all of you.

The bedroom door creaks open slowly.  I get up off of the couch to see what's going on.

Me: Travis?

No response.  Travis peeks around the door and starts to walk towards me.  I notice his eyes are closed.

Me: Are you sleeping?

Travis: (indignant) No!

Travis shakes his head vehemently and then gives me a hug.

Me: Okay, what's the password?

Travis: (whining) Aww, I don't know the password.

Travis hangs his head, turns around and walks back to bed and lies down.

Is he not the cutest husband ever?  : )


  1. BAHAHAHA! i used to sleepwalk as a kid. and when i'm manic, i talk in my sleep.

  2. In my defense, I only have somnambulist events when I'm overtired. Yesterday was definitely one of those days; I was exhausted! No recollection of this event at all.

  3. hahaha! This is great! I used to sleepwalk, too, but I haven't had an episode since high, I think.
