Sleepless in… just sleepless

Dear Mr. or Ms. Stork,

Hello! I am not sure if this is the right person individual to write to about this matter, but I thought I’d give it a try.

You have delivered to me two very lovely children (thank you again!). They really are a delight, and I enjoy them very much. But I’m wondering if maybe one of them has a defective sleep mechanism? My son just doesn’t seem to be able to sleep very well. He is more than two and a half now, and the sleepy-making thingamajig in his brain has never functioned properly. In fact, as I write this, he is supposed to be napping, but instead he is screaming “Good morning! Good morning!” at the top of his lungs and jumping in his crib and generally acting like a crazed parrot-ape. This is quite typical of him anytime he’s supposed to be sleeping—except right when we’re supposed to go somewhere, at which point he suddenly becomes struck with a bout of narcolepsy.

So, I was wondering if I could possibly get a replacement sleep-at-the-right-time part for his brain? And will that require an Allen wrench and rubber mallet, or what?

Hope you had a great summer!

Best regards,
Red-Eyed Mom
