Insomnia...Trouble Sleeping...ICE ICE BABY

Well its been awile since I have updated and frankly not very many people read this, HOWEVER my sis (shout out to MEG) is a fellow blog stalker and she found me on her so she better comment if she reads this!
Lately I have such a problem sleeping. Now those of you who know me well know that this is NOTHING new, but its been worse. My problems sleeping can be traced back to when I was a child and counting my moms snores to see if it was safe to sneak into my parents bed and BEGGING my older sister to let me sleep with her.... so until college I RARELY slept alone haha. Now in the past I have used medicine to help me sleep....some good some bad but let me tell you it works...
First I tried these but they made my lips and limbs numb every morning haha
Then I tried this interesting prescribed pill and let me just tell you it made for some INTERESTING events (thats a entire other post haha)
So now I have been using these babies...their natural and I love them ha
Now I know none of these are probably GREAT for me, but until you often wake up at 2 or 3 am and never go back to sleep you cant judge!!! ha
Well the past three nights I have had some sleep issues, obviouslt the melantonin is not doing its job...so I've been waking up everynight around 2 or 3 and not being able to go back to sleep..well I leave the bedroom so my man can sleep and I curl up on the couch and watch my absolute favorite thing...INFO-FREAKIN-COMMERCIALS... l o v e t h e m
I have been known in the past to buy these products from INFOMERCIALS

Now last night ummmm around 3:30 am while I was indulging in cocoa puffs and the boob tube....THIS infomercial came on

Now I know I know that most infomercials are crazy and do not work, however I have had very good luck with most of mine, especially the Magic Bullet ( I LOVE IT) and at first I was like whatever this is ridiculous. But after about twenty minutes and two bowls of cocoa puffs I was hooked and ready to buy Precious (aka Carsyn Cunningham) and my prego sis these videos! Ok so the premise is that through your baby seeing a word on a flashcard, hearing the word said, then doing the action of the word or seeing a visual picture that they will be able to recognize the word and READ it or at least act out the word if they cant talk example: CLAP...It looks and sounds alot like "Baby Einstein" but its oh so different. anyway, the program hinges on the fact that the first 3 years of a childs life their brains are creating thousands of synapses every second – allowing a child to learn both the written word and spoken word simultaneously, and with much more ease. As an educator and Kindergarten teacher I understand this but it still amazes me. I mean even if the child doesnt know WHAT he/she is reading just the fact that they can recognize words and maybe letters its insane. So anyway..... I really want to know if anyone has used this program or knows anyone who has. PLEASE I am begging to know if it really works haha... here is the website check it out!

You are cracking me up with your infomercial stories and how your sleeping problems started. Hope you get some sleep soon! I'm having sleeping troubles too since I am supposed to be sleeping on my side. You've got me interested in this "Baby can Read" thing-will have to check it out for baby Hubbard.
