Sleep, oh ye elusive sleep

Sleep issues around here are going haywire. I'm an on-again off-again insomniac from way back, that's a given, but now my 10 yr old seems to have caught it. He was awake until 2am last night, and then was crying this morning that he's too tired to go to school. He's now comfortably reclining on the couch with an electric throw rug and kids ABC telly.

He lies in bed for hours simply unable to sleep. We've done the warm milk, the warm bath, we've tried reading and not reading - he just can't seem to get himself off to sleep.

Miss Z just woke up. At 10am. She also took ages to fall asleep, even with me sitting there and doing the hair-stroky head-massagey thing.


I need a nap.
