What Happens When a Three Year Old Skips His Nap

There is the occasional school day when Isaac is too wired from learning which prevents him from falling asleep at naptime.

Dinner is...interesting on those days, either involving a hyper, chatty little boy or a big ol grump.

Isaac did not fall asleep today at naptime and was exhausted by the time bedtime rolled around. At night, Tobe always gets Isaac settled into bed with some books (He is like his parents and loves to read for about 20 minutes before turning out the light) while I get E. to bed. I then go in, kiss Isaac, and tell him how much longer he may read.

This is what I found when I entered Isaac's room tonight: I wish I could say this was staged, but it wasn't. The child was out cold.
Being the caring Mommy that I am, I immediately ran and fetched Tobe and the camera. Because what is childhood without at least ten completely mortifying pictures floating around?

Aren't the houseshoes the best? Isaac believes that one must actually sleep in one's houseshoes, which he does most nights. I love to see his stick figure frame in PJs with those big ol houseshoes on his feet...makes me smile everytime.
Goodnight!

Those houseshoes are classic it was the first thing I noticed when I looked at these pictures. And concerning your post about Evelyn she and Ava really do need to meet because oh the "passions" run so deep here at the Hamrick household with that one. She is not so much on the talking thing, I am amazed at how much Evelyn says. At Ava's 15 month appt. pretty sad when the dr. said wow you must be exhausted at the end of the day!

Love it! Obviously that book couldn't compete with no-nap exhaustion.

Clara and Ian share Isaac's affection for sleeping in their houseshoes, too.

Lynley, that picture is awesome. Did Isaac have Papa Bear imprinted on his face?!
