If you know Blaine intimately, (and I hope you don't) you know that Blaine frequently sleep-walks.

It's usually funny. (Like the time he tried to change his pillow's diaper, or when he was searching for Jake's air. Yeah, I said air.)
Sometimes scary. (Like the time he thought he was Jack Bauer and was trying to get a "NAME!" out of me.)
And then occasionally hilarious. (Like the time he was telling me to "Come on!" and Legos were falling out of his sides and he was trying to keep them in and fly away.)

Anyway... this is how the other night's conversation went...

Alicia: Where are you going? *sighs* Honey, come back to bed.

Blaine: (As he gets out of bed frantically) I'm going to check on the kids and put them back in the box.

Alicia: No, honey. Just come back to bed.

Blaine: But I have to get them back in the box.

Alicia: I'll do it.

Blaine: You will?

Alicia: Yes, I will go put the kids back in the box. It's okay, I'll take care of it.

Blaine: Okay. Thanks.

Alicia rolls over and Blaine begins snoring.

Way to save your kids from being shoved into a mystery box, the likes of thing 1 and thing 2!

I love Blaine-the-sleep-walker stories.

What the?!... As if 2 kids waking you up in the night isn't enough. You better get naptime when he comes home from work.

Sosososo funny.

About twice a year, my husband sorta mumbles in his sleep and (since I'm always up for a good laugh), I try to egg him on by talking back and asking questions. He never takes the bait, just falls back to sleep.

I wish I had a sleep talker.

This keeps popping into my head when I'm falling asleep at night and makes me laugh out loud. Hilarious!

This is awesome. Haha laughed my butt off! Ryan talks in his sleep too. It's usually creepy...He laughs in his sleep, yells at our dog, and says "worth it!" just like Dr Cox on Scrubs after he kills his "wife" Elliot. haha. It's definitely fun, eh?
