As soon as Finn hit age 4, he abruptly stopped napping. It was so weird. He went from sleeping long 3-hour naps, to zero naps, overnight. And he seems to function fine that way, for the most part.
Now that Ollie and Calvin both finally go down for naps together after lunch, our afternoons can be very quiet around here. Gloriously quiet. Finn normally comes into my room and shoves his Sparky book in my face and tries to force me into saying verses with him. And sometimes, when this crew just gets too boring and too quiet for too long, Finn finally gives up and joins his brothers in the wonderful world of sleep. Not always. Just sometimes.
One particularly dull afternoon, I noticed Finn napping on his green sleeping bag in my room and I had to dry my hair. So I turned on the blower and disturbed my sweet prince from his slumber, and he walked out of my room.
After drying my hair, I went in the family room to see what happened to Finn.
I checked the living room.
Hm, that's odd, I thought.
I went back to my room and looked everywhere, including the closets, but still NO Finn.
Both Calvin's and Ollie's rooms had their doors closed, so he couldn't be in there.I wasn't panicking yet, but I was getting awfully curious.
I re-checked the family room and living room again, this time calling his name. "pssst Fi-in".
And then, I noticed the cushions looked a little "off" in the living room.
Are you sleeping,
Are you sleeping?
And sure, enough, there was my little squirt, all curled up with his beloved nemo, behind the couch cushions like a small animal, fast asleep.
He looked so sweet and meager, I just had to take a picture.
