Is sleeping a skill?
Because if it is, then my boys haven’t learned it yet. Every night I go in to check on them before I go to bed. 9 times out of 10, I find them in some sort of bizarre position (similar to the pictures). Blankets are half covering them or on the floor, stuffed animals become pillows, one sock is on and off is off. Every night it’s something different.
This doesn’t happen to me. I lay down and wake up in essentially the same position. I don’t lose the covers and my pillow is an essential part of that process.
At least Parker understands the importance of sleeping in. Kent, on the other hand, wakes up at 6am and instantly wants to eat. I don’t really need an alarm anymore when “I wann see-re-all (cereal) now!” is repeated over and over at 6:01.
I love sleep. I just want my sons to love it too (and be good at it).
