As I was putting SD down for her nap the other day and going through my routine with her, a random childhood memory popped into my head. Both SD and Linus have radios in their room and humidifiers. We pretty much keep them going non-stop, but at the very least, they are on when they are sleeping. Not sure exactly why, partially because of the soothing sound of the humidifier and it does help with their allergies. The music is more for the noise, but also the subliminal messages, they listen to bible music. Anyway, the memory that flooded my mind was the time I spent the night with my cousin Jenna. When we went to go to sleep, she turned on all of this stuff and I could barely sleep. She turned on music, a noise machine, turned the fan on turbo and turned on this siren light, that literally spun red light around the room all night long! Growing up I don't think I slept with anything on, which may be why I am such a light sleeper, so to try and sleep through all of that commotion, was next to impossible!!
How do your kids go to sleep? What did you have in your room growing up that helped you go to sleep?
