Restful ~ Theme Thursday

It has been anything BUT restful around here this week, and I rarely get photos of the girls resting any more. (Um, note to girls – would it kill you to take a nap or two a week when Mommy is home? Hey, let’s try it, just for laughs. Maybe tomorrow?)

So I didn’t think I had any photos for Stacy’s Restful Theme today, but then I realized that I do have lots of photos of Addie “hangin’.”


This is Addie’s favorite place, and way, to rest. At least a dozen times a day she will throw herself over the arm of the chair or sofa and she literally just hangs there. Not quite sure when, or why, she started this. But this isn’t really normal, is it?

Sometimes she’ll ask to “hang” on my lap. And then she gets mad if I don’t keep my legs perfectly straight and comfortable for her wiggly little body.

I think that it is just her way of getting a little reprieve from her very hectic life. (And, yes, that would be sarcasm, there.)

    That is cute and I would say perfectly normal if there is such a thing. Oh and my daughter has that same nightgown!!

    What a cutie! I love the hanging out thing. πŸ™‚ If it gets her to sit still for a little while I’d take it. Naps seem to happen only every now and then nowadays for toddler too.

    That is too funny! I always used to sleep crouched in a ball with my rear up in the air — for years. However, I am pleased to report that this is a habit that has been broken.

    LOL…well, not normal but funny! They all have their little idiosynchrocies, don’t they? πŸ˜‰ That’s a cute shot of your little bug hangin’ out and resting. πŸ™‚

    It’s just so funny to think about when we loose this. Cause, now if you did it, it would be weird. Maybe she’s on to something and we just won’t try it to find out. Hmm.

    Too thought: Restful, that is not my kiddos or happening in my house.
    Cute shoot of her hanging off the couch

    Sweet. Kids do the funniest things. Speaking of rest, we are having a contest…

    Harrison would love to “hang” out with Addie in that position! He’s all for doing those crazy type of things.

    LOL….that is sooo cute!

    So cute!
    I think it’s a normal thing. If I’m sitting on the couch with my legs up on the coffee table Zoe can’t resist hanging over them.

    *snort* That’s hilarious. I thought I have the world’s weirdest kid, but A. might be tied for that dubious honor. πŸ™‚
