Sleep is a funny thing. I’m home Tuesday and Thursday mornings now through the end of the school term in 4 weeks, since our nanny didn’t work out (another, longer post). Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean I don’t have work to do. So this morning I was sitting at the desk in our living room researching “how to save images to disk in R” with Linnea in my lap, and this happened:
No bouncing, no jiggling, no singing or rocking or begging or coddling. Literally, the kid fell asleep on me while I was completely ignoring her trying to work. And then she transferred seamlessly to the bed.
I never, ever expect this to happen again in my life, but what a beautiful gift in a stressful few weeks.
