Anticipation Proves to be Exhausting

After anxiously counting down the months, weeks, days, hours, and minutes to his long anticipated John Deere birthday party my four year old grandson conked out just minutes before party time. 

He was smack dab in the middle of his family room sound asleep on the couch as his party guests arrived. 

He had talked for weeks about the party. It's party time and he is missing it. There was NO waking him up. The house was filled with 9 other excited children and ten chattering adults. He slept clear through his birthday dinner! He ended up sleeping for the first hour and a half of his long anticipated John Deere birthday party.

Thankfully, you don't know what you don't know. So, when he finally woke up it was then that the party began.

He was full of energy when it was time to open the gifts.

And, it must have been a power nap from the way he took after the John Deere Pinata!

Have you ever fallen asleep at a really bad time?
