The Midnight Clapper

Just when I thought Robyn had ceased doing interesting things in her sleep, she decided to give me another story.

I was drifting in the world of slumber, gently floating through the happiness of dreams, when suddenly I awoke to the sound of clapping.
I hope this image helps you imagine the sound I was hearing

I opened up my eyes just in time to see Robyn clap her hands a few more times before exclaiming, "Yay!"

I've learned through experience that if I can get her to interact with me when she is asleep, the awesomeness multiplies ten fold.

So, I asked, "Why are you clapping?"


She doesn't always speak english when she's asleep. She often speaks in tongues. So I thought I'd try a different question. I thought maybe she was cheering herself on. "Did you do it?"

(This was said with much pride.) "MMMmmmmHHHhhhhhMMMmmm"

"What did you do?"

At this point she decided she had enough of this conversation. She rolled over and quietly continued sleeping.

We may never know what Robyn did that she was impressed with herself enough to incite applause. But what I do know for sure is that I'm glad we don't have those lights that are activated by clapping. That would have just ruined my whole world.


  1. I love sleep talk and always try to get more out of my husband too because it makes it that much funnier. Good job on attempting a different question!

  2. I am sorely tempted to buy you a clapper light now. Just in case. :)

  3. I've always thought those lights were a bad idea anyway... and this is why.

  4. If your happy and you know it clap your hands!

  5. I'm so glad that Robyn has so many successes while she is sleeping. I've been working on increasing my success rate while sleeping. I'll have to get some tips from Robyn on that.

  6. Hahaha this was great. Yay Robyn!
