I never knew it was possible to sleep sixteen hours straight until Ada proved it could happen. I put her down for her afternoon nap on Friday and she didn't wake up until Rick went in the next morning to make sure she was alive. We checked on her several times to make sure she was breathing, and she was. Somehow she got into Doc's time machine and fast forwarded to being a teenager . I blamed it on her being sick and needing the rest to combat her cold. Whatever the reason, it was pretty amazing.
Moral of the story: Kids need their sleep. Do your best to provide an environment that fosters healthy sleep habits. And try not to ever wake a sleeping toddler.
