Cubbie loves to play, but he also loves to sleep! On weekends when I have to get up early, I will get up and start getting ready while Cubbie is still in bed. Most times I have to physically pick him up to take him outside. He looks at me as if to say, “It’s too early. Let me sleep.”
Today, I woke up around 7 a.m. Cubbie woke up around 9 a.m. to go outside, and then he headed straight back for the bedroom and didn’t get up until almost noon (only because I made him take an outdoor break). Then, he came out to the couch where I was reading and curled up under my blanket and when to sleep again! He loves it when I have my days off. He gets to sleep in and just be very lazy.
Sometimes he sleeps in the most random positions. The funniest is on his back with his legs in the air. Most times his legs are bent, but every once in a while his legs are stiff straight in the air while he sleeps. I have no idea how he does it.
During the night, he’ll often go back and forth between on top of the sheets and underneath the covers. When he’s under the covers he’s always nestled up against me. In the middle of the night I’ll feel something pushing against me as if trying to shove me out of the way. It’s Cubbie stretching his legs!
I’m jealous how Cubbie can wake up and go right back to sleep. I wish I had that ability. Often times when I’m up, I’m up. I also admire how he can sleep anywhere. From the back of the couch, to my lap, to the car. It doesn’t take long to hear a low snore.
Maybe I shouldn’t let him sleep until noon, but he’s already so spoiled! Plus, I can tell he’s more relaxed when I don’t start getting ready for work. I’ll explain his “pouty” mood in another post when he sees me getting ready for work.
During most of the day I just relaxed and read a book while Cubbie slept. I figured why not be lazy, too? Sometimes we all need a lazy day.
