Stairway to Sleep

I’ve heard of it happening.  Children falling asleep on the stairs.  Supposedly in bed…but not.

Only it’s never happened to us.

Forty-eight trips up and down the stairs with petty requests.  Yes.  That’s familiar.

Which was why when my husband stepped over something dark on the stairs instead of on it, he also sucked in his breath.

He wasn’t expecting this.

A child in half his pajamas on the sixth stair.

Completely succumbed to sleep.

    After we moved his father from a crib to a bed, it took about 2 1/2 more years before he would actually fall asleep in his bed. After we tucked him into bed at night, he’d sneak out into the hall with his pillow and fall asleep there. When we went to bed, we’d pick him up and tuck him back in….sound asleep. Sometimes, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!!!
