You know I couldn’t leave Halloween behind without a kid who had a sugar collapse.
Luckily, Jessica caught Saul doing exactly what I had wished my kids would do. He just went facedown in a candy coma. I assure you that this is far preferable to the screaming fit that my youngest devolved to, before finally collapsing from exhaustion in his bed at 9:30pm.
Oh yeah – my kids were climbing the walls – and they weren’t even dressed as the right characters. Sadly, I did not get anything like a Sleeping Stormtrooper or a Dreaming Darth Vader. Napping was a concept left behind in a galaxy far…far…awayyyyyyy.
To those of you who lost your power and your water. To those of you who still shiver, unshowered. To those of you whose Halloween was scary in all the wrong ways, we at Naps Happen wish you a warm and clean weekend filled with the comforts of the modern world. May your power (or your superpowers) return.
This is a scene that I fear will not be taking place around 8pm tonight.
Wishful thinking, Mom
No, I don’t care overmuchly if my kids take a sandal to bed with them, but I am afraid that there will be no sleeping after the sugar rush that is due to take place in less than 12 hours.
Cormac is dressings as a contortionist.
Here, you can see that sleep overtook them so quickly that Cormac didn’t even have time to put his hand down. Or perhaps that’s another of his secret baby hand signs.
The Music Man
William, on the other end, appears to have been in the middle of composing his great opus when sleep overtook him. Or perhaps he was accompanying Cormac while he tried out some Irish hand dancing?
Either way, this type of deep sleep will be but a dream for me later tonight. Cue up the candy bowl and hunker down for the long haul, folks. Happy Halloween!
Being a truthful nap aficionado, I have to come out and say that (as you can see) he is not REALLY sleeping here. However, this moment was too funny not to post on this Easter holiday, because I did really come in the room to find him like this — a victim to a strange Easter egg coma.
To all who celebrate, may your hams be honeybaked and may your bunnies have solid ears.
Much Love…Team Naps
