Any Advice?

I dangled my feet off the bed for just a few seconds before I took a little hop down where they hit the floor. It was 6:45 AM, and Abigail passed by my bedroom door. I called her in, flipped on my bathroom light, and asked her if she was excited about going to work with Daddy. As I was brushing her hair, I noticed the sticky white, crusty stuff in the corners of her mouth. I dampened a washcloth, and wiped her face as we talked about the upcoming day. She studied me quizzically, inspecting the corners of my mouth. "How do you keep from drooling at night?" she inquired. She seemed a little relieved when I explained that she would probably outgrow it.

Funny post. My oldest daughter, almost 23, STILL drools when she sleeps. I think that either you do, or you don't. I have 2 droolers and 2 non-droolers.

Ah, that is so sweet.

According to the lady who owns our local quilt shop, some of us never outgrow the drooling problem.

The way she tells it is quite hilarious though!

Tori said...

Aww, that's sweet! The things kids talk about.

Oh dear, I still drool at night. I just thought it was because my dental work was done poorly. hmmmmm. I also know that at least one of the boys drools too. I will have to pay more attention to the others to find out. I guess no advice, but just letting her know that some do and some don't, so she is not alone. It really is no big deal - just a good reminder to wash one's face in the morning:)

I drooled during my naps during both pregnancies... but not any other time, unless I am dead tired!

Terri said...

Okay, I can't believe that I'm admitting this but I still drool too and I'm 46! LOL!

I come from a family of non-droolers who married into a family of droolers (AND snorers!). :o) My DH drools a lot (we never share pillows *laugh*) and I've noticed my daughter drools too (19 mo.). Wonder if the next one will drool, too? :o)
