A Six-year-old in a Sleep Mask

Yes, I love to take pictures of Zoe while she is sleeping and have taken many and posted a few here on the blog, but this may be my favorite to date. The funniest part about the fact that she is wearing the sleep mask is that she insists there be at least 2 different lights on in her room at night -- her closet light and a night light. At least the flash from my camera didn't disturb her when I took this picture.

LMAO - what a fantastic picture! I'm glad to know that other mothers let their kids sleep with a closet light and a night light. DD's room is like an airport runway. I suddenly feel more normal today!

How funny! I like the fact that her sleep mask is half the size of her face.

When my son was little, I could feel the moment he dropped off to sleep. There was a palpable change in the air. I loved to sneak into his room to watch him sleep. In August, the day before he left to go back to college, I stood in the door of his room and watched him sleep for a few minutes. He'd be upset if he knew I did that. For just a second I saw the face of my little baby, and not the young man that he has grown to be.
