"Asleep at the Wheel," continued...

Natalia woke up this morning on the couch since I had been afraid to move her to her bed. (When I had tried, she had started to wake up, so I just let her sleep there instead). 

The poor kid thought she had been doing homework all night long!!!!! She didn't realize that I had taken away the workbooks and tucked her in. It's still very dark here until 7:30 a.m., so she was a also a bit disoriented. 

"Mom-my? Oh, it's just sooo hard! I had so much homework that I did it all night long! Spelling and reading and writing and spelling and..."

I then showed her that she had not only finished her assigned homework, but she had also gone ahead in the books. She then beamed, jumped up, and said:

"Doing homework while asleep is just the best!"

We'll see how that works in years to come...!

How sweet! Too bad homework does not get done while asleep (same for housework).

I don't know Tina, I distinctly remember two years of haze as I worked and went to college full time. I got straight A's one semester and don't remember a thing from those classes! Looks like she'll do just fine!

Hey! She's got a head start on the whole college experience. Staying up late - doing homework - not remembering a thing! :)

Hi, I'm a student from the states currently studying here in Moscow. I stumbled upon your blog and I couldn't help but notice that a few posts back you had a picture of your table with pumpkins on it. I was curious- where did you find those pumpkins?! As Halloween is drawing near I would love to carve one but I've looked around where I live and there are none to be found. Any suggestions?
