When I Can’t Sleep

Some evenings I can’t fall asleep. I blame it on the fact that my better half is gone. So what to do when I toss and turn in my bed? I pull out my computer and create a baby mood board (isn’t that what most people do?) 😉

I was thinking of a room in soothing gray/blues and light pink along with sweet little “critters”. Perhaps if I had counted enough of the “rocking sheep” I would have fallen asleep. Yeah, probably not. Is there anything more soothing than thinking of a sweet baby sleeping? I don’t believe so.

I picture sweet dreams in this room with many dreams jam packed with clever animals, like in the movie Sleeping Beauty where she sings Once Upon a Dream. 🙂

  1. I’m all for woodland creatures but I refuse to ever purchase a camo onesie. Two antler mounts may be excessive but I like the grown up animal approach.
