Age-Old Dilemma

Eight and a half minutes before game time…

To awaken or not to awaken?

(for the record, Momma woke him up and he kicked dirt for two innings)

Sleeping kids remind us how closely they resemble our idea of little angels. Look how precious he looks in this picture! I can see why you'd want him to be able to hang onto this peaceful repose.

He looks so sweet in this picture!!! I miss those days of pure sweetness....

Hey I like the new look!

Diane said...

Ah, I miss the days when mine would fall asleep like that. They are long since gone. sigh.

Tamar SB said...

So precious! He was resting up for his game! Glad he kicked dirt!

NaomiG said...

So sweet! They're the best when they're sleeping. Or talking. Or playing. Ok, so they're just the best. :-)

Oh no! I've never had that happen before a game...I have a feeling Dylan would be miserable if I had to wake him for a game!

Kmama said...

Aww!! My kids normally fall asleep 2 minutes before we get home and then are wide awake when we try to move them from the vehicle to the bed.

Amy said...

Uh oh. I think there was no "right" answer there dear. Unless you had a piece of candy or sucker or something to calm the waters ;-) Oh the little parts of parenting that kinda make you want to throw a tantrum of your own! LOL

When I was a short snort, I got some of my best sleep out in right field.

Hey, look at the new look! Love it!!!!

Was the dilemma to wake him for the game or let him sleep through it? I have always let them nap on the way to the game (power nap) and then woken them up when we arrive.

There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping child! He's just precious!

I also like the 'new look!'

Sleeping kid pictures are among my favorites.

Heather said...

Poor tired guy.
(If I ever fall asleep in your car please don't wake me. I really need a nap.)

I wouldn't wake up because a bad tude would come on. Besides they are so cute when they are asleep.

Shana said...

Aww, I was gonna say not to wake. I never wake.

I hate when that happens. I had to wake Stunt Man up two minutes into his sleep for Birthday pictures. Ugh.

Beth Zimmerman said...

Josiah still does that in the car ... unless he's driving!

Bethany said...

Car naps are the worst unless it's a long trip. They are a definite no win.

Buckeroomama said...

Aww! Sometimes I open the car door and stand there and take in a few seconds more of the sleepy peacefulness, lean in and feel their breath on my cheek (yeah, I'm weird!) before I wake my kids up for their classes / games... =)
