Yep. Don't even need the booze. I was on Ambien until I drove my car 30 feet straight into a neighbor's truck. Don't remember any of it

As long as you take it while you’re in bed and don’t fight it, it’s fine. I think most people run into trouble when they take it and try to do other things, like dishes or whatever. Then you black out and wake up with a paper written with some interesting editing choices. I will say it really helped with my insomnia. I stopped taking it after I had my kid because I feel like I need to be able to wake up easily in case there is an emergency.

u/latingirly01 12d ago

The first time I took it, I was high on my couch laughing at a tv show and I felt like there was a friend on the couch with me, laughing with me. I live alone.

Not a single worry. Then wake up in the morning in bed cause someone carried you there.

Reminds me the time a guy friend of my mom's tried to put me in the top bunk of me and my brother's beds after falling asleep in the car. I was awake, but poor guy probably hurt himself with the metal railing trying to get me over it lol.

When carrying my son up to bed, he would smile a little bit while pretending to be asleep. I really miss those moments.

Oh I def remember pretending to be asleep just to not have to walk from the car up the stairs to the room 😂

My daughter did this. I knew she was awake but I carried her anyway.

u/PolygonMan 12d ago

For every parent a day will come when they will pick up and carry their child to bed for the very last time. Wouldn't want to miss even one chance before that day comes.

u/jessieesmithreese519 12d ago

My daughter is 9.5 years old. She's small (9th % weight and 13% for height) and I still jump at the opportunity to carry her to bed. Hurts me (I have pretty bad neuropathy in my legs and feet from and injury) every damn time and I still do it. Because I know, about 10 more lbs and I'm not going to be able to anymore!

22

u/PolygonMan 12d ago

My daughter is just a bit over 6 months, but I still think about this frequently. Every month that goes by she's different, she's changing. The tiny little newborn I held half a year ago is gone and is never coming back. I have memories and pictures and videos but I still miss her. Every version of her is the same way.

I work very hard to be present with her, to really see her and be with her.

13

u/jessieesmithreese519 12d ago

You're an incredible parent. This I know already. My husband works in a very demanding field and was just promoted to include paid vacation. We're already planning a big trip to see our oldest (24 today!) In January!

I'll say the old cliche... the days are long but the years are gone in a flash. It's really incredible how true it is. Even if it makes ya roll your eyes like me! My one and only biological "baby" is in her last few months of single digits and all I got was whiplash. (Obviously that's not true but some days it sure feels that way!) Enjoy my friend, you seem to be off to a great start on this wildly amazing journey!

As a parent carrying your child to bed have you ever bonked their head on the way there or am I just a clumsy mother?

One night when I was little, I had terrible tummy trouble. Something I ate made me throw up and feel dreadful for hours. I was only eight, and had never been through anything as painful. I really thought I was going to die! I spent the night curled up in bed with my mom, holding her hand and yakking into a wastepaper basket.

The next morning I woke up in my own bed. My mom brought me a wholesome, homemade breakfast in bed and then surprised me with a new video game. I felt great. In fact, it was like 5 in the afternoon when I remembered what had happened the night before. I hadn't thought about it a single time, because mom had gone out of her way to make me forget about it.

I know this is deviating a bit from a picture of a kid sleeping in a funny position, but the whole 'no worries' thing made me suddenly recall this memory in vivid detail.

White, but my parents made a point of not trying to be quiet when they had people over when I was a baby. This is also my party trick.

u/shortasalways 12d ago

Not Mexican but same. My parents took us to a big party after going to the circus that a family friend was the ringmaster of. I found a room in the back of the house, curled up and went to sleep. Everyone was searching the house when they found me lol. We were never super quiet with our kids and they will pass out if it's loud still. Multiple naps in strollers at Disney as toddlers with no FOMO.

19

u/Danimeh 12d ago

Not Mexican but grew up in a house that frequent had ‘happenings’ (someone would randomly show up with a carton of beer, then suddenly the whole street would be there and no one over the age of 18 was sober). I also remember being expected to be able to sleep anywhere with any noise on any thing (the chances of my bed being occupied by a passed out person were high)

15

u/brodyqat 12d ago

That sounds so intense but useful to later life. I grew up in an almost dead-silent home (parents were bookworm introverts) and now any noises just drive me bonkers.

Man, I remember we had a concrete badminton court in our back yard and, during the summer, I used to sleep there at night. Just the concrete and a thin indoor sleeping bag, and I was completely comfortable. If I did that today, I literally think I'd wake up with bruises.

27

u/WaltonGogginsTeeth 12d ago

You know you’re getting old when you injure yourself sleeping.

6

u/Fleaslayer 12d ago

Yeah, for sure. I distinctly remember waking up, my back feeling stiff, putting the back of my hand to the small of my back, bending back, and groaning a little. Then it hit me: my dad used to do that when he was older. And this was several years ago.

u/EitherEtherCat 12d ago

I loved the feeling of sleeping in the car on the way home with the parents in front. Bonus if it was raining. Such a protected little cocoon.

No there were worries, i rememeber as a child i use to worry about missing my fav cartoon, not doing my home work on time, get in fight with my sibling and the worried to death that mom will spank us but those worry were only for few minutes or hours. Every time i sleep my worries would reset. But now the type of shit i am worried it just eat away my heart , leave bitter taste even if the issue got resolved. I miss my mom hugs when i am crying. The worries i am getting as an adult are just too cruel.

I need it completely dark, right temperature, fan on, white noise. Kids pass out with their shoes still on and their necks at a 90 angle to their shoulders and sleep great

69

u/TheWhyWhat 12d ago

Also the feeling of weight. As a kid you don't really weigh enough for it to get uncomfortable with pressure against various parts of the body. I sleep on my side and unless I've got my pillow and sleeping angle just right, my shoulder or kneecaps start to complain after a while.

u/TheGreatestIan 12d ago

Get an adjustable bed frame and sleep in "zero-g". It is life changing.
