You know how it can be *too* quiet?

You know how sometimes, when you have children in your home, it can get too quiet? So quiet that your Spidey Sense starts tingling and tells you to immediately go seek out why there is such an absence of noise?


Sometimes, what you find is utter chaos and destruction.


Sometimes, what you find is an impromptu nap...



It seems that the combination of Kiddo's extremely active day at camp (this is "sports" week and baseball and soccer were played with much enthusiasm as well as a few spills, if the grass stains on the front and seat of her pants offer any evidence) and a twenty minute, read quietly to yourself in your super-comfy beanbag chair activity once we arrived home were just too much for Kiddo. By the time my Spidey Sense tingled and I went to investigate, there was already a pool of drool larger than the size of her hand accumulated beneath her cheek. Hopefully she was having highly literate dreams...

Hopefully she still sleeps tonight!

Oh, how lovely! I know the Spidey Sense feeling well. The "It's quiet ... too quiet" feeling.

Awwwww - how incredibly sweet! She's such a cutie, Heather.

The drool, not so much.

Those Spidey Senses rock. And so does the the fact that she has a book in her lap. How smart is SHE going to be when she gets all grown and stuff?

Rather find a sleeping kid than a very active quiet kid, holding something like toothpaste or red paint...
