Dear Sleep,

I missed you last night. I am sorry that my children’s needs kept me from dreaming in your arms. I’m willing to try again though friend. Don’t give up on me. I long for your embrace.

I’ll meet you at around 8:45PM in my bed. I’ll be the one wearing the turquoise nightgown. I’m 5’4” and have brown hair. It will be splayed all over my pillow.

Please also make an extended visit at the little crib next to my bed where the foot and a half long person will be sleeping. She is more or less bald. Correction, she has a little bit of blond downy hair on her very round head. She’ll be wearing a one-piece sleep suit equipped with purple flowers.

In the next room over, if you could also please call on the three-footer with the blond curls it would be much appreciated. He’s sleeping in a bed that says Xylus over it. He may be cuddling a furry animal.20131004-133616.jpg

My husband will be joining us later. He has long curly hair. You may notice him by his snore. Also, he’s naked.

Thank you.

Yours kindly,

    Been there, not slept through that. My kids are grown, but I have a 4am wake up dog…or 2…or 5. That’s dogs, not times. 🙂

        Good luck with enticing the sleep to come for a visit. Thanks for looking at my “about” page–not many people do that. Or, if you didn’t look that far, for glancing at the left side of the screen 🙂
