With my good friend Allison at Motherhood WTF preparing to take an epic flight to New Zealand, I found this picture of wee future traveler Adora to be particularly apt.
Adora’s mom, Ruth, tells me this girl was sitting in her Bumbo waiting for a meal, and I’ll be damned if I haven’t had this experience on an overstuffed jet crossing the Atlantic many a time.
Only I never recline my seat all the way, people.
Quick nap before meal service
I think Ruth is going to have to explain to Adora that only huge men with stinky feet recline their seats all the way when meal service is ramping up. How the heck is a person to eat her custard with some guy’s greasy head pushing it into her lap?
In the meantime, I guess we should still take a moment to appreciate Adora’s flexibility. She will no doubt make a superb globetrotter. Once she gets out of this infernal Bumbo.
Keep the skies friendly for Allison, friends. Recline halfway. Over and out.
Cormac is just taunting me, here. Okay – this is not his bed. But it’s like he said “You have failed as a parent. As other toddlers nap in their beds the world over, this afternoon, I will lie here.”
End of Yoga Practice - Inversions
And he’s feeling pretty serene about it. Note the tranquil expression on his face. If only his legs were a little higher, I’d say he was doing his inversion at the end of yoga class. With shoes.
I especially like the synchronized napping he’s got going on with bunny, in the background. Right leg UP…nowwww NAP!
May you experience a peaceful beginning to your pre-holiday week. Go for the full shoulder stand.
I really don’t know what it is about my offspring that makes them so comfortable sleeping in these ridiculous foot-dangling positions. Seems like a sign of awesomely strong abs, if you ask me.
I mean, was he like a thirsty man in the desert…crawling toward the couch with his last ounce of strength? Never to pull himself completely onto its luxurious oasis?
Now THAT is putting your feet up.
