How about them shoes?

For sale: Two pair of shoes.
Come and try them.
You will probably give them back after 5 minutes. But please. Come and try them for a moment.
Here’s what you get when you step into our shoes: We have a 16 year old son who does not sleep. By this, I don’t mean, he wakes once or twice to go to the toilet or get a drink. I don’t mean he stays up all hours on his device chatting to his mates or girlfriend. By this, I mean, he literally gets up every 15 minutes to wander around the house. Sometimes he will go back to sleep for 30 minutes. Occasionally it is a full 60 minutes before he gets up again. My husband and I take it turns to redirect him back to bed or to listen as he wanders around. We listen to make sure he doesn’t go outside into the freezing cold, where, if we didn’t notice, he would probably die. We listen to make sure he doesn’t go into his younger brother’s room to wake him up . This doesn’t just happen once in a blue moon.  This happens every.single.night.  Why does this happen?…
