Remember when you were a kid and you could just fall asleep anywhere? Okay, some of you probably still have that ability. I just happened upon an interesting sight a few moments ago. Reliably for the last couple of weeks after we put Jack to bed, he gets out of bed and just stands at the gate at the top of the stairs outside his room. After one of us goes up and spanks him and puts him back to bed, he typically goes right to sleep. I guess it's just a routine he's developed. But as long as he's not getting up more than that one time or in the middle of the night, I think I'll take it.
So, Josh is working his typical Monday night shift in the ER. So, I tucked Jack in with the usual emphasis on not getting out of bed, etc. Not long after I tucked him in I began feeding Sam. I heard a few rumblings, but hoped it was just Jack getting comfortable in bed. After I finished with Sam, I turned on some lights to see if I would hear a scurry of little feet upstairs. I didn't hear anything, but did notice something at the top of the stairs that looked out of place. I climbed the stairs to see Jack stretched out on the hardwoods right in front of his bedroom door with his lovie in hand fast asleep. So, I guess during the period of waiting for someone to come out and punish him and send him back to bed he decided to take a cat nap. I helped him back into his bed and hopefully won't hear another peep from him tonight.
