Sleep is something my body obviously has issues with. I have tried all sorts of natural remedies, over the counter sleep aids, and I finally went in to get Ambien from my PA only to have it make me horribly ill. I can't fall asleep without listening to an audiobook and when Mr. Superman is gone, sleep is more than a lost cause. Yoga exercises and deep breathing used to help (I'm talking three years ago) but now its just yoga exercises and deep breathing.
The last two nights, Mr. Superman has tried to be extra helpful in helping me fall asleep by wishing me a goodnight in a creative way.
Sunday night came and as we were crawling onto our air mattress (all our real furniture is in storage), he said his normal "I love you's" and "Sweet dreams." He added in a "Baby, sleep like an angel okay" and it just melted my heart. Monday morning came and he asked if I had indeed slept like an angel. Upon hearing that my answer was, "Not really" he let me know he'd have a different sleep wish that night. Sure enough, last night found us again in bed and giving our goodnight kisses and saying our "I love you's" and as I was curling up under the blanket I heard Mr. Superman say, "Please sleep like a koala tonight. They are really cuddly and soft and really good at sleeping."
He just makes my heart smile. I'm quite looking forward to what he has to say tonight.
