Sleeping Tips

Hey! Wanna know how to get a great night sleep? Here’s a few things you can try:

Place your freezing cold feet in the armpits of….. your hot husband. Try not to wake him up, be prepared to have him toss you across the room.

Listen to the sweet sounds of….your four year old coughing every two minutes.

Go get the feverish/coughing child and put him in bed with you.Now you are nice and warm. In fact the four year old is emitting so much heat that your skin is melting off your body.

Be sure to place the four year old high on your pillow with his mouth right next to your ear.
Now you’re able to hear him coughing up his toenails directly into your eardrum. Oh, the sweet soothing sounds of your baby coughing, you’ll be asleep before you know it.

Might as well throw a cat in the mix. Put your cat on your head and tell her to please start rubbing her claws on your cheek. If that doesn’t work then just ask the cat to rub her butt on your face or lie down across your neck….because the best way to go to sleep is by NOT BREATHING.

Make a deal with your dog… wake up just as you might be nodding off between the hours of 12am and 4am to go outside, because he knows that if he goes outside and starts barking at the air and other invisible things that you will feel safe and protected and be able to go night-night.

Let me know how these work for you. If you need to borrow a kid, cat or dog I can help you with that.
