Stuffed Snooze

20 Jan

As we adults tackle our New Year’s dieting resolutions, Cormac simply collapses in defeat over the overindulgences of the holidays.*


Exhausted by the excess...


I know.  I know.  You’re HUNGRY right now.  That Lean Cuisine felt like an appetizer.  The carrots are boring without dip.  Well…think about the red button your jeans are leaving on your stomach (am I revealing too much about myself?) and when that fails to motivate you, remember feeling like this.


Say goodbye to the gluttony.

Just looking out for you, folks.  Now wake up and get to the gym.

*There is a small chance this exhaustion was caused by too much harmonica practice.  I subscribe to the Tiger Mom method.

    I must know the following:

    1. How long did he sleep like that?
    2. Is that the standard length for a Naps Happen Style nap?
    3. When (if?) he naps in his crib, does he stay asleep longer?

      Beth – in this case, I moved him as soon as I’d taken the picture. I didn’t want him falling out of his high chair! As far as the rest of the crazy naps go, I would say they range in length from only a half hour (usually in Cormac’s case – he’s a newbie) to as long as 2.5 hrs (William) with an average around 1.5 hrs. Cormac definitely stays asleep longer if I get him to his crib. The caveat is that once he’s asleep on the floor, moving him risks the chance of waking and having no nap AT ALL. And that is an outcome I do not enjoy! As for William, once he’s asleep, it doesn’t matter where the heck he is. He will continue…

    This is my favorite to date. I think that first shot should be on the front of a greeting card. Maybe a birthday admonishment against overdoing it.

      High praise, indeed! 😉

      I agree. My favorite.

      Although a instant classic, nothing will ever beat Nosedive…with soft landing.

        I can’t say I disagree with you, Jeff.

    This very nearly made coffee come out of my nose. I got myself under control and swallowed in time to read that you subscribe to Tiger Mom practices re harmonica. It’s just too much funny at once.

    And his poor nose! Can’t you get a softer table?

    I like that even in his sleep, he manages to cling to the seat with his right hand, hanging on.
