Rooster Tricks

I don't get it.

Every night, I read you three books, hug you, kiss you and put you into bed.


Very specifically, IN THE BED.

You are so quiet in there.

I think you must be sleeping sweetly.

Oddly, when I check in on you later, you are surrounded by toys and passed out on the floor.



Rats! You tricked me AGAIN!

Gah!

Thank GOD is hasn't occurred to Gatito that he could get up and play! LOL.

(Get up and come find us, sure.)

Hahahaa, even has a bottle of water above her head. She completely moves out, doesn't she?!

That is hilarious and absolutely adorable.

Shannon said...

The little minx! My niece was like that - she would be up playing for half the night - the kid hardly slept.

Veronica Mitchell said...

One of my girls does the same thing, especially in summer when she throws her pillow on the floor in front of the AC vent.

Jennifer said...

Ha! I just told my husband we should sell our children's beds to earn some cash, because they sure as hell don't use them. ;)

Magpie said...

YOU STOLE MY CHILD!

Actually, she does it less than she used to...kindergarten wears her out.

(And wow, my word verification is "hossed" - what does that mean?"

Hysterical - and so, so cute!

Christina said...

Were our children separated at birth? Cordy does the same thing roughly every other night. I find her on the floor with all of her toys arranged neatly around her, and her pillow and blankets on the floor with her.

The other nights I generally find her asleep in her rocking chair.

my niece did that for years! i don't get it...how do they fall asleep IN BED and end up across the room?

Vodka Mom said...

curses, foiled again!! I LOVE this pic- and the adorable commentary.

Aviva and Lilah do the same thing. Hilarious!!!!

Patience said...

Awwwww! So very cute!

furiousBall said...

that is so darn sweet. i can't wait to have my little short people all snuggled up with me this weekend. i'll actually be in your neighborhood

No, it's the late night toy fairy that comes out and moves kids around without their knowing it. Good thing you didn't catch the fairy in action, they can get frightened very easily.

Robin said...

Maybe she wants a 'superfirm' mattress.

Joie said...

Patrick would do that if it weren't for the fact that he is still in a crib. Ours has a very low setting and no adjustable rails so he can safely stay there -- Thank God because otherwise he would open his door.

Very cute picture. She entertains herself very well.

Patois said...

At least the baby doll gets to stay in bed.

Corgimom said...

My son did this for awhile, so we started him out on a pallet on the floor each night until he outgrew it.
She is adorable.

recycling bin said...

That is too sweet! As long as the floor is not too cold I would let it continue. Eventually they outgrow it.

Maggie said...

She's a ninja!

Mine just piles all her toys in the bed with her, so technically she's still in bed.

Day Dreamer said...

That's an adorable picture.

She's a doll! (a sneaky one!!)

Debbie said...

Wouldn't we save a lot of money if we never bought beds or toys and just allowed them to play with paper and sleep on the floor?

Miss Grace said...

I used to do that when I was a little girl.

carrie said...

At least she put her baby back in it's bed, nice and snug! That is too funny!

BlondeMomBlog (Jamie) said...

That photo is HILARIOUS! And I love kids in little zip up fleece jammies. They are so cute.

deb said...

This was lovely, reminded me of when my kids were little. Made me smile.

Childrens beds said...

At least the ground was soft for her to land on!

Karen said...

I used to find my oldest daughter in the strangest places, fast asleep, in the mornings. She never stayed in the bed. Most times she slept in front of the refrigerator, I guess waiting to be first in line for breakfast.

Awwww.....how precious!
