Sleepy Syda

Syda really only has an on/off switch. Which is why she's capable of falling asleep anywhere and generally does fall asleep wherever she happens to be when the fatigue takes hold. For whatever reason, she tends to fall asleep on the rug on the kitchen floor in front of the sink. We are not even attempting to understand this. Cause really - if there is a specific reason she likes to sleep there, I'm not sure I want to know what it is.

She also sleeps curled in a ball on her belly, for security maybe? It makes for a very sad photo because she looks like a defeated 2 year old who has given the most epic, convincing tantrum of her life to no avail. She has given into the exhaustion of the tantrum and fallen asleep where she stood, just moments ago, arguing her point. This is NEVER the case though. She just feels comfy that way. The thing is, it's much easier to believe that when you see her sleeping in her footie jammies in her warm bed - not so much in food stained shirts on the linoleum floor.

Near her brother's shoe - why not? Totoro's there to protect her, no worries.

Strategic placement - she's blocking the trash and the sink in one move. It was a hard afternoon for me, really.

Note her UNused pillow that she brought to the couch herself. Also, how do you sleep sitting up and not get a sore neck?

NOT a tantrum. She slept her peacefully for 90 minutes today.

Office chairs are so versatile!

Even the lollipop in her hand was no match for "The Rug". Maybe it's Lavender scented and doused with opiates?

Oh, goodness. The office chair pic made me burst out laughing. My 2 year old sleeps on her face like that too, and she now insists on sleeping on the floor instead of her bed. What is it with the floor?
