Sleeping

When I say singing for an hour what I really mean is that I’m lying next to Chunguita on the toddler bed with my eyes closed mumbling the 60 verses (that I made up) to “Hush Little Baby” or maybe it is one more rendition of “99 Bottles of Wine on the Wall”. Some nights we go thru 160 or so bottles of wine.

Why are all lullabies so ridiculously short? I get bored singing the same thing over and over again.

Usually, I don’t fall asleep while putting her to sleep, but this month has been tough. However, I do find that after lying in bed with her, singing, nursing, and patting, that I am sufficiently relaxed that I don’t need additional bedtime ritual to get to sleep. Usually, I have to take a long bath and read some more in bed (total time > 1 hour) before I can fall asleep. Now I can take a shower and read for 5 minutes (total time ~ 10 minutes), falling asleep easily.
