One of my favorite things about camp is F.O.B. or, Flat on Back.  It is a time every day where all the campers have to be flat on their backs in their bunks for an hour.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love to sleep?

I do.  A LOT.  And when I nap, it's serious.  I get under the covers and if I snored or drooled, I totally would during naptime.  I don't, but I would.

Unfortunately, campers (namely my children) weren't actually all down with the whole nap thing for the first few days of camp and they found various and creative ways to interrupt my QPT or quality pillow time.

One of the days, I actually recorded on video the nonsense so you could see what I had to deal with and feel sorry for me. 

Sadie had gotten all dressed for her next activity while she was supposed to be resting.  Then, she woke me up to ask if I liked her outfit.  I told her I thought she had a little too much white going on.

Apparently, that was a mistake because instead of going back on her bed to rest, she made up a dance.  And a song.  And performed it for me very loudly.  And longly.

Later, she tried to sell the water bottle she drank from for $1000, and I vowed to never mention another thing about her clothes.

Never, or five minutes - whichever comes first.

We want to adopt her. She is so much FUN!

"Will you take her with you?" Best line of the whole video. Hilarious- it seems that Sadie and Anna Clare may have been separated at birth.

Yeah, that's not annoying.

This was clearly NOT the day that I was her free-time partner. I definitely helped her expend energy- by overcoming fears of fish and frogs in the lake, as we swam to the trampoline and jumped around for toooooo long, AND looking for somebody whose daddy was "Samuel Jackson"... I'm pretty sure that was a prank call to camp. I'm done. (procrastinating on work, if you can't tell.)
