It's A Comfort Thing

Lately, I have noticed that as I am falling asleep, I tuck my thumbs in.

I am assuming it is a comfort thing.

I am known to twirl my hair around my finger as I fall asleep. When I was younger, my mum said that she used to have to unwind my hair otherwise I probably would have cut off the circulation during the night.

Do you or your children have a comfort thing?

When Annabelle was a baby, and she lying in my arms to go to sleep, she would play with my ear until she fell asleep. If I moved her hand away, she'd get cranky with me. :)

I crack my toes before I fall asleep and if anyone was to trace small circles on my temple i'm asleep in a matter of minutes!

My son rubs his ear when he needs comforting or is sleepy (and gosh, if I had $1 for every time someone suggested he has an earache!).

Comforting things don't hurt anyone and can be an easy way to get relaxed, quickly. I like fluttering my eyelids on my hands, that delicate feeling always relaxes me and calms me down!

My children don't and i feel so lucky. I have heard too many stories from friends about their kids not going to bed because they can't find their comforter. No dummy, no blanky, no special toy - any old toy will do!!
