power nap

Yesterday 7 year old Caleb woke up from a short nap and asked me, “How did I get here on the couch when I fell asleep on the bench?”

That’s a good question. It went like this. Caleb was eating a granola bar at the dining room table. When I asked him a question and he didn’t answer me, I went to take a closer look. He was lying down on the bench, sound asleep.

A couple minutes later, his arm was dangling on the floor, with his head hanging down a little bit too. I knew it would be just a matter of time before his whole body would follow.

Sure enough, there was a loud crash as he fell to the floor. He didn’t even wake up. He spent about 5 minutes asleep under the table before he startled awake, then crawled over to the area rug a few feet away where he curled up into the fetal position.

About another 5 minutes and he stood up and stumbled into the living room and onto the couch.

Then we woke up and that’s where this story began.

All in all, he didn’t “sleep” more than 20 minutes.
