This was such a funny story! I thought you'd enjoy it...

Sleep at Last

The story of one fussy toddler, one electric toothbrush and one desperate mom

Come on, admit it. We've all resorted to some pretty harebrained schemes at 3:00 AM when our babies wouldn't sleep: strapping a screeching child into his car seat and driving aimlessly until he was out cold (then continuing to drive aimlessly for fear he'll wake up); pushing a stroller up and down deserted streets while humming some tuneless version of her favorite lullaby (or yours); praying out loud to the sleep gods for two consecutive hours of snoozing.

Before I became a mother, I wasn't exactly sympathetic when my exhausted, cranky girlfriends moaned about how hard it was to get their children to sleep. "Um, did you try cough syrup?" I once asked.

oh my God. Kaylee falls asleep to my toothbrush at night! She doesn't need it to fall asleep but it puts her to sleep a lot easier. I always brush my teeth right beside her bed and by the time im done, she's out cold.
