Am I ready for Christmas? Not at all. Cate stayed with me today, and there wasn't a bed anywhere in the house that was cleared off for her to take a nap. I told her she could sleep on the couch, and she told me her mommy didn't let her do that at her house. I agreed but told her this would be a special treat at Mimi's house. (You gotta pull out the big guns sometimes, you know?)
I told her she could watch one show, then she would have to lie (lay?) down and try to sleep. She said her mommy let her watch two shows. I agreed as long as she agreed to nap after that.
Since she would be on the couch, I sat across from her to keep an eye on her. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you she was asleep in less than 5 minutes and she didn't move for an hour. I had to take a picture.
Please notice the Christmas pillows at the foot of the couch. They prove I've done some decorating.
