Aww, poor little fella' fell asleep at the dinner table again...

Little DJ fell asleep in his chair in between the blessing and the serving of the food tonight at dinner. This is happening more and more now that he has totally given up formal napping. (You know, where I put him in his bed at a certain time and he magically falls asleep, and then I finally get some housework done...or eat cookies...) I think that maybe I'm the only person around our house who doesn't get as much sleep as I want. Or maybe I'm the only dorkwad that takes pictures of unsuspecting sleepers.











Elise's Humility-o-meter Update: So, you know how I was bragging about my nifty Scrabble word that scored me fifty-something points? Well, I had another amazing game and got this 71 point word ('tornado'--all seven of my letters on a triple word score space. I wish you could've seen it!) and I was telling the tale to my sisters and mom the other day while we were out yard saling. My mom listened patiently through my story before asking humbly, "Elise, my child, have I ever told you about the time I played a 118 point word?" Then she got this far-off look in her eyes as she described her victory, which took place some time back in the 90s. Maybe the 80s. And now I have been sufficiently humbled (but I'm still a teensy bit proud of that 71 point word).

Aww Elisey! I didn't mean to burst your bubble on your 70 pointer word! You did good! I was just so proud to have smacked Dad with a 117 point word. Hence the far away look......
