Monday Mommy-ism

Mommy-ism #121: sleep (part 1). Little kids can sleep anywhere. This is usually because they have fought going to sleep so hard that when it finally hits them, it hits them hard. And in a variety of different ways:
  • There's the 'fell asleep while eating' position, usually occurring at the dinner table and involving either a hand still grasping a spoon or fork, or a handful of food that never quite made it to their mouth
  • Or the 'half on, half off' position, normally occurring on a couch, favorite chair, or even from time to time on their actual bed
  • Or the 'fell asleep while doing something' position, similar to the first one, but this usually involves them holding onto a favorite toy or toys, surrounded by books (because they couldn't decide which book they wanted to read), or on the rare occasion, shoes
  • Or the very popular (if somewhat uncomfortable) 'fell asleep in the car seat' position

My personal favorite is the 'fell asleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed and now they don't want to move me in case they wake me' position - yup, that ones a killer.
