The Middle of the Night

A couple days ago during Simon’s nap I left Elias alone in my bedroom for a few minutes so I could clean the bathroom. When I came back, this is what I found:

P1170654Since it was an odd sight for Elias, I asked him, “What are you doing?”

His answer? “I’m in the middle of the night.”

I just had to chuckle at that one. My son…the boy so far removed from napping that he thinks you can only lay down in the middle of the night. Elias stopped napping about a year ago when Simon was born. He has quiet time almost every day, and I always remind him that he can lay down and rest as one of his choices. He never chooses lay down and rest. Usually I find him reading or playing with stuffed animals. This boy never lays down. I was quite shocked to find him doing so. But I savored it. Because I never know when the next time might be!
