Oh, yeah! Been there! Fuss, cry, refuse to sleep on comfortable mattress with ample pacifiers and stuffed kitty. Lay down on sunroom floor and pass out. Go figure. Kids are weird!

That's hysterical!!! I can say that Zoe never did that. She's done many strange things... but not that.

Did you really move her? Or did you just leave well enough alone and let her nap there?

Colleen - Seeing how I'm slightly insane, I did move her. I was convinced she was going to wake up, but no, she was limp as a wet noodle. Never even stirred.

In the photo, she's lying directly in front of my washer and dryer closet door. Which I, of course, needed to get into.

And yeah, Heather, kids are very weird.

What a little cutie! Yes, sometimes you just leave them there so you can get a little bit of piece. A long shower with a little one is just a slice of heaven, isn't it? :)

That is way too funny! I wish Alexis would fall asleep when I was in the shower. Or even just stay asleep. Or just go find something to do besides holding the shower curtain open and watching me. Whatever.
