Happy Illustration Friday where this week's prompt is "spent".

Remember the good old days where we just woke up when we woke up, then just played until we fell asleep in our tracks?

Neither do I.

This morning, both Chaco and Wolfgang overslept. I could tell because of the "sound" of their oversleeping - that would be silence in the place of the usual banging and clashing that accompanies their morning ablutions.

I purposely did not go and wake them, but lucky for them, Magnum's banging and clashing that accompanies his morning ablutions did serve to startle them into consciousness, and they both made it to school on time.

There's a time to sleep, and a time to wake. Too bad we don't always agree when those times should be.

Sweet picture! I remember my babies being able to fall asleep anywhere and everywhere.

I also remember being of the age that sleeping until I woke up and falling asleep in my tracks was an option. Seems I was always awake early because I didn't want to miss anything good. And I was never ready to go to sleep when I was supposed to because I didn't want to miss anything good.

Hey Abby! So cool! I remember my kids falling asleep in this exact same position. You nailed the topic perfectly! Nice work!

You got it, I also thought of the spent hammock, but didn't know if it had the same meaning in English!

My lad never just fell asleep he'd just keep going and going and going the only problem was his mood would just get worse and worse.

A super illustration

I see that I'm not the only one who is reminded of our kids sleeping in that position.

I can imagine the drool coming out of the corner of his little mouth, staining the cushion. :)
