Hi, friends! It’s time for another Memory Monday.
When I first moved into my home, I had a very tough time falling asleep and staying asleep. That happens after you’ve been living on the street.
Every night, I would get in bed and then lay down. Stand up. Do 87 million circles. Lay down. Stand up. REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT. I didn’t like sleeping. You could tell it scared me and I wouldn’t fall asleep until exhaustion left me no choice.
Often, I slept on the floor with my back up against the wall. Another sign that my time on the street effected my sleep.
I was also a thumb sucker/chewer. It was very soothing for me to put Mom or Dad’s thumb in my mouth and gnaw on it where I’m missing a molar. When I would do that, it would put me to sleep.
I dug into Mom’s video treasure chest and found this gem of me when I first moved in. I had VERY long hair! (There’s a surprise guest at the end of the video too 😀 )
I’m sure glad I found my Mom and Dad. It’s nice being able to sleep knowing I’m safe now.
