Why is it (and my parent-readers may be able to answer this) that the child you are laying next to will NOT fall asleep, until you, yourself, fall asleep first? Is sleeping like yawning, in that, when you see someone yawn, you join in the yawn too?
And then, how do they stay so silently asleep while you (the assumed parent) wake up with a start, drool plastering your hair to your face, to dizzily pick yourself off the floor and stumble into your own bed?
(Wait... I think I'm referring to myself in the second person again. Dang.)
