News From Sleeping Beauty

I'm back in my old kindergarden/day care center. The children seems to have been concerned about the way of sleeping arrangements "over there".

We were sitting by the table, drawing the other morning. The three little girls were drawing magic stairways and beds, so I was drawing a wooden bed with a quilt on.

A co-worker of mine (to the children):

Oh, åslaug is probably drawing the bed she was sleeping in in America.

A little blonde haired girl leans over to look at my drawing, her eyes big:

Woow, could you sleep over there???


And then yesterday one of the boys approached me, crawling all over a stack of mattresses:

On the farm (they know I stayed on a farm in America), did you sleep with the animals?


-Why not?

-Well, they had beds in the house...


Short pause while his little brain was processing this new information.

-Not even with the cow?

-No, the cow slept outside.

-Oh. And not with the dog?

I wonder what they've been told about farmgirls?

Working all the time, no time for sleep,

and if such a thing as a nap should ever occur it has got to be next to the cow?

I have fun talking to them though, they are SO CUTE... and, seriously concerned!


I'm going to bed,

I'm back to the life where it's all about

the battle for getting enough of this wonderful thing: sleep!

Oh, and in the picture is my beautiful and faithful companion, Mindy, whom I would most definitely choose if I ever had to sleep next to a cow =)

We live near a farm..they are harvesting feed corn this week. My toddler loves tractors and likes to watch them. It's fun living on a farm with all sorts of animals.
