And a snotty goodnight to all

This afternoon at nap time I came up with a brilliant new way to get Girl Terror to settle down into sleep. I told her to say goodnight to all her body parts. "Go asleep, toes" she started. "Go 'sleep knees. Go 'sleep belly. Go sleep elbows. Go 'sleep neck." I thought this had to be the cutest thing ever, plus it seemed to be working! She was being still, and quietly telling her body to settle down. She continued. "Go 'sleep ears. Go 'sleep mouf. Go 'sleep nose." (teh heh heh!) I didn't see what was funny, but I was still very impressed with my parenting genius. "Go 'sleep boogers!!" and she exploded into giggles. And all the parts woke up.

Hi Tammy,

I'm going to have to remember that the next time I can't fall asleep. Actually I took a stress reduction course that taught us how to relax that was very similar to that technique. ;-)
