I Love How Some Things Don't Change.Ever since my daughter was a baby, I have always rubbed her back to help her to fall asleep.
This afternoon I was sitting on my bed talking on the phone with a friend. My 12-year old daughter jumped on my bed to watch TV while she waited for me to get off the phone so we can go to the mall. She's stretched out cuddling my pillow when I put my hand under her shirt and start rubbing her back. She turns around and says...Mom...you know I'm not going to sleep. I nod my head yes and continue to rub her back as I am on the phone. Within a few minutes, I look over and there she is. Completely out cold. I'm better than a sleeping pill!!! She took a three hour power nap.
