Sleeping Beauty

This is Lauren's new sleeping position. She goes to the La Z Boy and starts rocking. Then she slumps over and the next thing we know she is out like a light. I loved this particular pose with her Cinderella dress on and her hands all cupped around her chin.

The funny part is that she totally denies that she has slept. I will ask how her nap was and she says she didn't nap -- she wasn't asleep. I ask her to explain the snoring. She denies it ever happened. Today I took a different tactic.

"So Lauren. Then why didn't you answer when I was asking you if you wanted a cookie? Were you ignoring me? Or were you asleep? Because if you were ignoring me you must not want a cookie but if you were asleep when I asked then I guess you could have one now if you wanted one."

I could see the wheels turning in her head. I finally had her.

Very sheepishly, almost so soft and mumbled that I couldn't hear her, "I was sleeping."

Mark one up for Mom. Lauren finally admitted she was wrong about SOMETHING. I guess cookies are a pretty good truth incentive.
