Do you sleep walk or know someone who does?

When I was a kid I used to sleep walk. I didn't know that I would sleep walk until one morning I woke up with paint all over me. We had painted an addition on the outside! I was outside walking around in the middle of the night. I noticed my daughter sleep walking a few times also. I think it's strange. I often wondered you would get around without hurting yourself. Does anyone know what causes this?

i have no clue what causes this but my mother told me about a few times i had sleep walked when i was younger and occasionaly now my 6 year old daughter does as well. She even manages to make it down 24 steps and back up again never realizing what is going on. One time she came down and layed down on the floor then i woke her up to get her back up to bed and she wanted to know how she got downstairs on the floor, when i told her she had come down herself she argued with me that she didnt, that i went up and brought her down. When she is sleep walking she just seems really disorientaded but still kinna aware of her surroundings, and it is a wander how she manages to never gets hurt

It is weird that they don't get hurt or fall. They even have their eyes open, in a trance. I guess were all crazy.LOL

Yes, it's kind of creepy when you see your daughter walking around and you can't get her to answer you then you realize she's sleeping. I only caught her doing it twice. The first time was when we moved and I was so scared that she would fall down the steps.
