There is a common method of falling asleep in our home. This is how I imagine my children would explain it.
Whenever possible, pretend to sleep. This will usually accomplish nothing but an “aw” from any adult that is near.
When your parental unit comes to tuck you back in, wake up and repeat. Certainly this will accomplish instant gratification.
Eliana has a way of pretending to sleep right after I make our bed, causing me to remake it after she’s done “sleeping”. This time, Elijah joined in on the fake sleeping, then Eliana insisted Isabelle needed to “sleep” as well. Put all that together and you have the following pictures.
The next photos are a result of Isabelle wanting to cuddle with Curious George. Eliana wasn’t too keen on that idea.
