Stairway to Heaven

One day, I heard William’s talking Little Einstein doll get stuck on repeat, and I knew that a nap was happening.  What I didn’t anticipate was the excellent location.


A real cliffhanger...


Please spare me the shock that I allowed my son to sleep on the steps.  I immediately went to the bottom and piled couch cushions on the floor in case of a mid-dream upset.

Then I callously took this picture of the trapped doll.


Help! Help!


…who was basically screaming in William’s ear, to no avail.

I left William to his snoozes.  A little while later, the doll gave up the ghost.  I looked again and saw William sitting up on the bottom step, looking bleary-eyed.

I walked away.

A few moments later, I saw this:


Second Wind


He slept peacefully for hours.  So, finally, did the doll.


  1. This is absolutely adorable.

    (and watching Leo’s panicked face beneath the curls is fantastic)

    Just saw this…followed through a maze of blog sites and the Versitile Blogger award. Poor kid! These are great photos! Love It! p.s. my child does not nap. I have extreme nap envy…
