Behind the Scenes: Too Tired to Play

After dinner last night, we decided to play a few hands of "Go Fish" and "UNO" at the kitchen table. Mom, Dad, and all four kids enjoying an evening of cards...until someone was too exhausted to continue. Sweet little Katie Grace wanted to be near us, but needed to "rest her eyes", so she brought her pillow, blankets and stuffed animals to the kitchen and took a nap right on the kitchen floor. Hilarious! Not even our loud teasing and joking during "Garbage" could wake her up. 

She slept there for about an hour. I was sure that meant she would be up until the wee hours of the night (because she is 3 1/2 and at the awkward stage of "I still need a nap, but if I take one, I won't go to sleep at bedtime, so mom tries to get me to survive without a nap, even though I get really grumpy and sometimes fall asleep at dinnertime anyway"). Thankfully, the heat and busy day wore her out and she asked to go straight to bed - which she did without any issues!

"Behind the Scenes" is a fun link up where we show those photos - but tell the real story behind them. The sneak peek behind the scenes, a look past the edges of the photo to the real life behind it. - Crystal Stine
