Today I witnessed a sight

rarely, if ever, seen in my life.

I was thankful to have a camera nearby to record it

in the event no one believes me.

It was 4:40 in the afternoon, and this was in my bed:

Chloe, napping.


I have known Chloe 12 years and she never naps.

not ever.

not even as an infant.

she needs less sleep than any human being I know, which is a bad match up with me, her mom,

who needs more than most people I know.


She likes Steve and I to stay up until she goes to sleep; it makes her feel comforted and safe.

Many a night, I am dying to go to bed and have to wait for her to get tired. I barely outlast her.

I truly wish I had her energy!


this is one rare photo.

Did the sound of the camera wake her up? Poor thing, she's a little wind-up doll.

Marci said...

She looks so cute in that picture...and cozy too...I think I'm ready for a nap!

LaRee said...

Maybe she was just resting her eyes...Grandma Angus didn't believe in taking naps, she always would say, I'm just resting my eyes.

Brittany said...

Yeah I talked to Chloe yesterday a few hours before her nap and she said she was thinking of taking a nap. I was shocked, I don't think I've ever seen her nap or heard of her napping! I sure wish I got those genes.


About Me

I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
