Mary is at an in between stage with naps. She won't fall asleep at a reasonable hour. Then in the late afternoon, she passes out (or is absolutely miserable). And I can't wake her up for several hours. Then she won't go to bed until late, and she sleeps a bit later the next day. So she's not ready for a nap at a good hour. Etcetera.
The other day, I went out to hang up a load of laundry and wrestle spent tomato plants out of the ground. When I came back, I found her thusly, next to my desk. Note, the floor is stone tile - not very comfy. Also note the long sleeve dress, unbuttoned. She was playing dress up. Daytime temps are still in the nineties here, so she's more than a bit overdressed.
I find these transitional periods wearisome. Very wearisome. At least they're good for funny photos.
|Should I color? Do some schoolwork? Eat a lollipop? Naw, I think I'll just sleep, right here, on the cold hard floor.|
|First she plunders the lollipop jar, then she passes out, evidence in hand.|
