Going to Sleep

Sometimes I put Chunguita into the crib and sit next to the crib and patting, rubbing her back until she goes to sleep? That works when she is lying down, but when she is standing up, screaming, and banging the crib against the wall (or moving it over to the wall so she can bang it), it doesn’t seem to work. I found that she only gets more agitated if I don’t pick her back up. And that means that I get more agitated and risk getting a migraine.

I’ve decided that I’m not going to worry about Chunguita not being able to go to sleep by herself. I just can’t imagine that she will be, oh, say 24 years old and still nursing herself to sleep. Now, she may still have problem putting herself to sleep, and frankly, I’d be surprised if she didn’t because it is only in the last few years that I haven’t had trouble, and my mother had trouble going to sleep for most of her 75 years. I also expect that Chunguita will be good at math, have beautiful hair, and need glasses, just her abuela and mama. I hope she doesn’t get all hunched up in the shoulders like we are.

My mother just admitted to me that she put benadryl in my milk to get me to sleep when I was little. Maybe that would work? ;^>
