As the mother of an almost 8-month old, I still like to follow the rule, “When baby sleeps, I sleep.” This rule was meant for parents of newborns I think, but since our baby has a touch of the night owl syndrome and likes to party at midnight, as soon as she shuts her eyes I put on my sweats and climb under the covers. Oh, who am I kidding? I was already wearing my sweats. This was the case a few days ago when Hailey started getting a little drowsy mid-afternoon. “Now’s my chance!” I thought. I quickly grabbed sleepy baby and cuddled under the comforter with her, gently soothing us both into slumbers-ville. I was sound asleep in two minutes. Hailey had other plans. Apparently, when mommy goes to sleep Hailey practices her cat burglar skills, which was when daddy walked in and caught Hailey scaling our bedroom wall. Boy does she look guilty in this photo!
