Never admit it

I don’t think Babess can have had a nap at daycare today. Most unusually, she fell asleep in the car on the way home.  And of course, after what can only have been a quarter-hour sleep, she was cranky and fragile when she woke up.

After the third mini-meltdown in as many minutes, I scooped her up for a cuddle and said, “Aw, sweetie, you’re totally worn out, aren’t you?”

“No I not!” she hiccoughed, “I just like crying!”

      It can join mine in a puddle on the floor 🙂

      We didn’t notice she was asleep until we stopped – she’s still in a rear-facing carseat. But it might explain an odd thing. About half-way home, she suddenly asked for a croissant. I told her I didn’t have any, and remarked that it was a random sort of thing to want on the way home. Now I think she might have dreamt about eating one, woken up briefly and been confused, asked for one, and then gone back to sleep!

    They’re so sweet when they’re crabby. Bub always says to me, “I’m just going to be sad and cry now.”
