Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Dinosaur Egg

A few nights ago Princess Nagger crept upstairs and was awfully quiet.  Usually when she sneaks upstairs fairly early in the evening, it's to jump on our bed because it has a nice fluffy feather bed on the mattress.  Though she knows better than to actually 'jump', since she's been making the feather bed lose feathers by doing so.

So instead, she pretends to do the Snuggle ad move and fall backward into the softness.  Since I hadn't heard a peep from her upstairs in a while, I thought I'd better go check up on her.  This was the sight that greeted me:

She was sound asleep on the bed snugly tucked into an extra pillow case from the guest room.  The only thing outside of the pillow case was her head.  Of course I had to take a picture.

Out like a light, and didn't even flinch when I turned on the bright overhead light, or when the camera flashed no less than three times.  I switched off the light and let her stay, since I didn't want to end up waking her up by moving her, and she needed the sleep.

I asked her the next morning why she was all crammed into the pillow case and that I found it rather funny.  Her response?

"It wasn't just an ordinary pillow case, Mama, I was in a dinosaur egg!"

She is too funny. How do they think of such things. She looks so comfy, sound asleep. I am tired, but know I will cough if I lay down. Eyes are heavy though, so I best go try!

She is too cute. She's got quite the imagination too. That pillowcase could double as a dinosaur egg with the multicolored stripes and all. Very 80s. I mean, late cretaceous. ;)

I have never seen a child crawl in a pillow case before... that's awesome! Could be the next snuggie?

Sherean said...

Absolutely brilliant! I read somewhere that you can use a pillow case as a stroller blanket (won't fall off) but Princess Nager's pillow case-as-sleeping bag is absolutely GENIUS. That it was a dinosaur egg, too, only makes it more special. She is a cutie!

Run DMT said...

That has got to be the cutest thing I've heard in awhile! How precious!

Andrea (ace1028) said...

That is absolutely too sweet! I am always afraid to capture pics of my daughter sleeping because I am terrified she'll wake up!

Brian Miller said...

too cute...all about hte dinosaurs...i imagine she will be extatic come christmas...i think you definitley have a paleontologist on your hands...

magda said...

what a li'l lammie punkin pie. her fascination with all things dinosaur is the best. the fact that it makes her so happy to think about everything this way, to see all of life through her dinosaur lenses and to have you treasure, support and blog about it. my angry non fun dinosaur mother would have been all "get out of that pillowcase now, before you rip it, it is not a dinosaur egg. dinosaurs are dead. do you hear me, dead?" therapy session over. thanks. you can bill me.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Oh, such a relief to see her sleeping like that. When my dtr was that age and snuck up stairs & too quiet...she cut off her hair.

Glad ur princess has her hair & imagination in tact. What a cutie!!!!
