Eitan is in transition. At school, we’re told he sleeps during rest time. At home? Not so much. Here’s an exchange following a recent rest time at home.

Eitan: Are Nana and Papa here?

Me: Not yet. It’s still still early. You didn’t sleep.

Eitan. I slept. I sleep with my eyes open.

Eitan proceeds to shove his face, eyes wide open, into my own.

Eitan: And I talk when I sleep.
