Slipping Into Sleep

Cheoah tries so hard to be polite to the Hu-Dad by listening to his stories, but last night she just kept slipping into sleep.

Yes, Hu-Dad. Interesting.

Yes, Hu-Dad. Interesting.

Hu-Dad was muttering something about how Cheoah was older and wiser than her little brother, Typhoon, and she needed to stop leading him into mischief around the house. You can tell that she was hanging on every word.

Unfortunately, watching her little brother get into trouble is much, much more interesting. Especially because she is such a master at appearing innocent just as he is caught. Somehow, this next picture does not imply a guilty feeling at all.

    Cheoah, hang in there. Continue to be attentive to little brother Typhoon. If you want more blog exposure you need to hang with Typhoon. He’s where it’s happening.

    He he he! I don’t think Cheoah is listening either!

    Mom sez: Actually, hu-Dad, I think Cheoah looks extremely guilty, just in the way she’s avoiding your gaze!
