Along comes KC. Who has been ours since he was 5 days old. Who co-slept and is probably the most emotionally secure child I know. Able to be right out there with his feelings and also to be empathetic to others. And guess what? This year HE started sleep walking. If he is going to do it, it is between 9 and 9:30 at night. So it must be when he goes from one stage of sleep into another.
Clearly there is not really trauma as an issue here. Or a disability. So I am guessing that maybe at this age they are putting order to their worlds and understanding more. At that knowledge is exciting and also at some level scary. Obviously I don't know for sure. But I sure listen closely around 9 p.m., these days for the footfall on the stairs.
