My son comes from a long line of sub-par sleepers. Growing up, I had every sort of parasomnia you could imagine: sleepwalking, sleep-talking, night sweats, night terrors — the whole deal. I once peed in someone’s sink thinking it was a toilet. And it wasn’t college. I was 8-years-old.
Hopefully, Finn won’t have the same sleep troubles I have had. My dreams have always been tiring, and I wake up, usually, without memories of what happened. Just more exhausted. But the way I know I dream every night, so intensely, is when I’m interrupted. When I wake, it’s in the middle of an epic saga. Every time.
At first, Avara would caress my hair and comfort me back to sleep. But when you’ve been with someone for 14 years… “Go back to sleep, Charlie.” She picks her battles. But she can only dream about winning them.
