Let Me Sleep ...



This is what jet lag looks like when you are two.

I saw Baboo lying on the nice comfy wood floor as I was whipping up a gourmet bowl of pasta a la mama.

"Baboo ... don't fall asleep yet. Mommy has dinner coming right up. Really. Just one more minute." I just don't want him to wake up at 2am to tell me he is "hungwee". I really really just want to stay horizontal for a whole night. I can dream, right?

I got the bowl on the table. He got up, walked over, took one look and started crying.

"I was sleeping." (sob sob)

He returned to his spot on the floor and that was all she wrote. I sort of wish I was him right now.

ROFL Poor little guy. That SO does not look comfortable, but little kids can sleep just about anywhere...except their beds!

Glad you had a great time in the states.

What a gorgeous shot! Ha- Awesome.

I love the "whole night horizontal" wish. Isn't it amazing where your priorities lie nowadays? In bed. Asleep. ;)

Aw! I have this same picture of MY two year old dealing with jet-lag, and all we did was pop across the Atlantic for a few weeks...
