a rare nap

    Newer Older

    Apparently I never slept during the day as a child; I still rarely nap. Here I am with both of my security blankets, though only one would stay with me for years and years. The white one is Cookie Towel (with an image of Grover reading a book to Cookie Monster) and the other is Shirt, an old flannel shirt of my mom's without the buttons. Cookie Towel is truly, truly threadbare now.

      WOW! Very cute shot. I also have to commend you for your decision to love the two best characters on Sesame Street. Grover was my fave and Cookie Monster was a close second but had to share second sometimes with Oscar the Grouch. Very cool that you have shots like this around........ I'm going to have to go dig some of mine up now.

      I love this photo juxtaposed with your "hardened new yorker" photo. What a transition!

      I'm all nostalgic after spending a week at my dad's and this photo is enough to make me tear up a little.

      Childhood was pretty great, wasn't it?

      If I had a non-napping kid, I would never risk disturbing her rare nap by snapping photos. This is pretty cute, though. The memory is probably worth it even if you were awake 5 seconds later.

      My sister's blankie was a gigantic crochet couch cover -- it was literally large enough to go over the whole couch. Not sure how that one happened.
