If you know us, you know that Henry is a spitting image of Charlie. From his walk to his mannerisms to the way they sleep.
This picture...can you tell is it Charlie or is it Henry?
It's Charlie but seriously could the picture look any more like Henry? Crazy identical and apparently there is one more thing in common.
See that picture that is Henry sleeping on the landing. Sleeping on the landing, you ask, yes, sleeping on the landing. It is 11:45pm and we are headed up to bed and there he was. I gasped and Charlie started laughing. We were in complete shock. Do you know how many Christmas gifts we talked about, how many times Donald was moved - the whole spirit of Christmas could have been flushed down the toilet.
Charlie promptly picked him up and put him in his bed. He came in our bedroom and asked if I sent the picture to his mom and I said No. He said, send it. Charlie told me that when he was a kid he used to like to sleep at the top of the steps because he never wanted to miss anything. He would like to listen and see the light of the television. He also said he took a blanket with him most nights. I just started shaking my head.
How could two people 30 years apart be so much alike. I know that they are father and son but honestly as there mother and wife - it freaks me out. I've never been around two people that are so in sync with each other, that it gets down right scary.
This morning when Henry woke up, I asked about last night. He made this face......(this picture is an old one, but it was the same face)
He knew exactly where I was going next. I asked him why he got out of his bed. The smirk continued. "Mom, I slept in my bed, MOST of the night". Henry, why did we find you on the landing? "Well mom, I wanted a fruit bar and Daddy says I can't have them in my bed." Really, Henry? "Yes, Mom."
So now I wonder what he heard or saw. It didn't seem that he saw too much but he certainly was down there a long time. I wonder what time he fell asleep and I wonder if he will do it again. I guess, I'm going to have to check the landing more often.
Keeping us on our toes, all day, every day. Grandma you have any tips for this?
