Just look at this poor, exhausted child.
This is the darling daughter of our niece, K, and her husband, B. She is sound asleep on the love seat with a light blazing over her head and one at her feet a couple of nights ago.
The rest of us (Chicken Mama, my hubby, family visiting from California and me) were scattered elsewhere in the kitchen/living room yakking away but this little dumpling at 5-1/2 years old (well, actually 5-3/4 as she will point out) was plumb worn out from the busyness of the day.
Her parents told us later that she cried when they left. Her mama assured her she would see us again in the morning to which L said tearfully, "But they live in MINNESOTA, and I don't!"
It's okay, L. We're keeping you here with us when your parents leave.
A Cold, But Sunny Morning
