What do you do when you can't sleep?

So, hubby took his sleeping pills and he's knocked out! Me, on the other hand, I can't sleep. I slept until noon today, because our 3 year old kept me up ALL night last night. So now my sleeping schedule is screwed up!

What are some of the things you do when you can't sleep at night?

  • I sometimes just soak in the silence. With 6 kids and a husband, I don't often hear silence. When they said it's golden - they were serious. I'm sure a mom coined that phrase. LOL

    I play online. I watch stuff on tv that no one else likes. I play games on my phone. I read. I wash dishes. I bake. Whatever I think won't wake any of the kids up :)

  • I take a Benadryl and read a book. I'm always out in no time.

  • Read a book, word search games. Cafemom, and drink a cup of warm milk w/vanilla. That pretty much helps knock me out for a while. I usually fall asleep with very quiet mellow music and I'm usually asleep before the 1st song is over. Mty therapist told me to try that, and I've been doing it for yrs now, it just relaxes me and I'm out like a baby.
