Jeffrey and Emma were having a hard time taking a nap. They were too tired and began fighting and hurting each other. Since Nana's here, I asked her to go in and read books to them. Ten minutes later I went in and she was sitting in her chair, the books on the table next her, and she was just watching them....THEY WERE ASLEEP! It worked. Nana had something to do and the kids settled down and fell asleep. Thanks Nana!


I think this picture is funny, however when I told Adam that I emailed this picture to my family because I thought they would all get a kick out of it, especially my dad (because he and Adam love to spar with each other and my Nana in this picture is my dad's Mom), he kinda got upset with me. He didn't think it was so funny. I think it's funny because Adam loves his personal space and really doesn't like to share things like food and his bed. I'm not sure if it's a germ thing, but I still think it's funny to tease him.

The story goes like this....Nana's staying with us because Debora had her baby and my parents went to help her out. Nana does NOT like to be alone and has dementia, so she should be with someone to help her out. On Thursday, Adam came home early from work not feeling well with a headache. He told me he was going to take a nap. A few minutes later, he came to me and said Nana was hanging out in our room and just sitting there staring at him while he was trying to fall asleep. He asked me to come and get her so he could rest. I told him I'd be there in just a minute. Of course, I got distracted and forgot. About a half hour later I went into my room for something and this is what I found. I couldn't stop laughing and had to take a picture. Nana loves going back to bed and really likes our bed...this isn't the first time I've found her in my bed. The best part is when Adam woke up he came downstairs, he said that when he stirred it woke her and she had a sudden look of surprise on her face. Remember, she has dementia--the early stages of Alzheimer's--I wonder what her first thought was, "Why am I in bed with this strange, young man!?!" And of course Adam's thought was, "What? You're in MY BED!!!" I don't see how he doesn't think this is hilarious!
