My Boy

Confession.

I'm a sleeper.

Give me three feet of space just about anywhere, and I'll find a way to curl up and sneak in a quick snooze. Given the choice between a nap and a slice of chocolate cake covered in chocolate icing, I'd choose a nap hands down.

Any day of the week. And, I LOVE chocolate cake.

My kids are just like me. All three of them are sleepers. We often laugh that they bear my maiden name because, quite frankly, I come from an entire family of sleepers.

During our recent trip to Vermont, we took Mom and Dad out for dinner to celebrate their 35th anniversary. It was a fancy restaurant and didn't really have the - how shall I say it? - "entertainment value" of a more kid-friendly place.

My Jack. He curled up his lanky, 5 year-old body onto a tiny dining chair in the corner and sacked out.

Like this.

For the entire dinner.



My boy takes after his Momma.

  2. My kids have the amazing ability to fall asleep anywhere (and in the funniest positions) too. We have a similar picture from October at my Dad's wedding...such memories. When they've had enough...they've had enough...must sleep!

  10. That is impressive. My kids have fallen asleep in some crazy places when they were young, but at age 5, that's truly a feat!

  11. This is priceless!! I don't think our kids could have slept in a restaurant if there had been a bed in the place and they'd been active all day. Truly hilarious!!

  12. Love this! One of my sons was like this--falling asleep during booming fireworks, under the table at a wedding shower--well you know. Oh, yours is so sweet.

  14. This is hilarious! As a photographer this looks like it should be a picture of a 6 week old on a vintage chair...but instead it's an overgrown baby boy sacked out. TOO CUTE! Love it!
