Comments Closed-Winner of the giveaway is Angela! Congratulations!
If thunderstorms are not your thing, the Midwest is not the place for you.
You can feel thunderstorms here in your bones.
The lightning will wake you from a dead sleep and the thunder that follows causes you to flail so quickly your bunk mate usually scores a knee to the gonads or a slap to the face.
Once your heart rate is down to a non lethal level your mind wanders to that little kid sleeping all alone on the other side of the house. You wait for it.
*door creaking open* “moooooooom?”
As a kid I walked the curved staircase up to my moms room and curled up on the bare carpet next to her bed, even though she had a king I never dared get in with her. I also scared the snot out of her every morning when her feet hit me instead of carpet. (Sorry mom.)
When the moosh comes in I set up thunder camp on our couch (yes, THAT couch) and give her my softest blankets and pillow to cocoon herself up in. (Why don’t I let her in my bed? A. my bed is at least 4 feet off the ground. B. the moosh is huge, sleeps diagonal and is very kicky in her sleep. C. We’re not insured. See where I’m going with this?)
What do you do? Or what did you do when you were a kid? And if you tell me you were one of those kids that never ever got scared and needed your grownup I’m going to roll my eyes at you. Tell me your brilliant (or utter failure) solutions in a comment and you’ll be entered to win the last amazing bedtime kit from GoodNites, worth over $175 which includes…
- 2GB Silver iPod Shuffle
- Logitech Speakers
- $25 iTunes Gift Card
- Brookstone Cuddle Blanket (I own THREE of these.)
- Patagonia Bag
Remember last week when I told you that entering the Bedtime Theater contest would pay off? Leave another comment that you’ve entered the contest over at bedtimetheater.com and you’ll have five extra entries into the giveaway ( I have ways of knowing so be honest.)
Thunderstorms are like tofu, or mold. Sure they’re natural and can have their place in the world, but they still strike a bit of fear in me and give me pause. I will pick one random winner from eligible entries Friday, April 9th at midnight EST. You have until April 15th to enter the Bedtime Theater Grand Prize.
I have partnered with GoodNites for the second year in a row to help make bedtime easier on everyone. I am being compensated for my participation in the Bedtime Theater program and not for promoting a product.
