    Planking before it was cool.

    Mommy said I had to sleep on chairs in the kitchen, and get up when the alarm goes off and put the turkey in the oven.

    I don’t understand why this photo is considered an “awkward” family photo. This one is cute. It doesn’t make sense that it’s on here.

  6. Alex says:

    hahaha too cute!!! :)

    I envy that child. If I tried that today, I’d end up breaking my back.

    She was tired of sleeping in a crib and wanted to prove that she could handle a big girls bed.

  11. Kate says:

    beautiful art photo, not awkward

    Too cute. Painful looking, but cute.

    I totally did this as a child! My grandmother had a tiny kitchen and dining room that were away from the living room/bedrooms. She also cooked A LOT. Whenever she needed a break, she’d put two chairs together and lie down on them. I started doing the same. :D

    Ths picture is actually what happened when her family had too many relatives staying over for the holiday. The poor little thing had to give up her bed for Great Aunt Mildred and her 2 miniature poodles.

    Maybe she attended Beatrice’s 1st Birthday Party!

  16. Cellar Door says:

    What a sweet little girl!

    Actually, its not the tryptophan that makes you sleepy. Its the fact that when you eat a lot, more blood has to rush to your stomach to help digest all that food. Thus taking blood from other areas of the body, and making you sleepy

    Before I scrolled down, it looked she was levitating. Now THAT would have been a cool picture. :-)

  19. crayola says:

    What’s funny is that she has a blanket over her and an alarm clock on the table, as though they figure they’ll just let her sleep there all night.

    Aunt Telcia as a child.

    • Ben says:

      Ha ha ha ha I’m waiting at the gate at the airport and everybody is watching me now, because I just laughed out loud at your comment… Love it! (and love aunt Telcia!)

  21. Suki says:

    Not awkward, just cute.

  22. Freak Speely says:

    Give her a pillow and set the alarm on the clock; she’ll be up just in time for school next Monday!

  23. Kate says:

    This is oddly terrifying.

  24. Cindi says:

    No, this is what happens when you watch the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day!

    I’m sure that’s the start of a classic magic trick.
    The next step is to pull away one of the stools.

  26. Tiara says:

    I used to do this when I was a kid!!!
