As you can see from today's photo, I had a lovely surprise this weekend . . . after our big hike on Sunday, Beansprout was absolutely spent by about 4:00. At 4:30 he asked me to take him upstairs and I pulled him up on my lap to explain it was too late to take a nap so late in the afternoon. As I was talking, his eyelids drooped and his little body moved with those falling asleep twitches. He dozed off right there in my arms.
A priceless moment, that any mom of an almost-four-year-old could not disturb. I held him there, snapped a photo, and tried not to eat him up.
