Ds funny- Sleep Advice
Old 06-28-2020, 09:53 AM

I mentioned to my husband this morning that I didn't sleep very well last night. (33 weeks pregnant, so no big surprise there). My 5 year old overheard me, and he immediately spoke up and said he could give me some tips on how to go to sleep. This was his advice:

1. First you just lay there and close your eyes. It's super boring to just stare at your eyelids so after a while your brain gets bored and you just go to sleep.

2. If you try closing your eyes for a bazillion hours and you still don't go to sleep, you should get up and turn on the ceiling fan. Then you just watch it go around and around. It's like a magician and it will hypnotize you and then you go to sleep.

3. My teacher at daycare used to pat my back sometimes to help me go to sleep at nap time. But if you're all alone, it's not that easy to pat your own back. Believe me, I've tried. So maybe you can try patting your head to see if that helps. I bet that works the same.

Bless him. He was very concerned. I promised to try some of his tips tonight.

Aw thanks for the smile. Maybe one of his little tricks will work for you but if not I hope you can find one of your own to work.
