Guest Napper #78 – Facedown Friday

30 Mar

I’d be shocked if there’s a parent out there who can’t relate to this image on a Friday. Heck, I’d be surprised if any adult out there doesn’t feel like this by the end of today. In fact, I feel like this now, having been awakened at 6am to do some surprise tick removal on one of my boys. All this outdoor spring play not only causes exhaustion (see below) but it also causes infestation, apparently.

Um. Ew. (Please send Deep Woods Off)

Anyway, Oliver, here, is demonstrating the kid craziness that can happen when spring has sprung.

Flop.

Ironically, he won’t be doing much springing for the next hour or two.

I see some crumbs...a lego...your engagement ring...

Unless, that is, he’s really awake and spelunking for a half-eaten graham cracker. I could understand that. Playing outside can make a guy hungry!

Elmo likes graham crackers!

Happy Friday, good friends! May your weather be fine and your naps be lengthy. Over and OUT.

Sunny Side of the Sleep

10 Feb

I won’t claim this nap to be bizarre.  After all, which one of us has not sought out the lone sunbeam sometime as a child?

Sunny Side Up

I remember lying down in a sunbeam in my brother’s room once when we lived in Nebraska and reading most of  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader before falling asleep there…circa 1983.

Dreaming of spring circa any-minute-now.
