Yesterday, after Scarlet's play date with Leila (giggles, tackles, park, swings, slide, more giggles, dance party, monkeys on the bed) she crashed at 6:00pm on the living room floor. Ten minutes earlier she was bouncing in and out of the kitchen telling me stories and asking me questions in her Beeble babble language . All of sudden the house was still. I stopped in my tracks, brushed off the acorn squash that was squirshed between my fingers and went to see what my little girl was up to.
If you've seen the vlog (linked below) then you know how I found her, zonked out to the world. Scarlet has never fallen asleep without a fight unless she's in her own bed, in her own room. On vacation I've tried playing movies for her as we settled into bed, thinking her lids would get heavy and she'd give in. Buuut nope! I find myself blinking and trying to stay awake while she completes the movie. So it was really out of character to find her like that! Not only did she sleep for about 45 minutes right there, but then she grabbed a snuggle nap with Daddy on the couch for another hour. I was able to get a few bites of dinner in her before we put her into her own bed where she continued to sleep until 10:00am the next morning. The girl was officially played out!
