So, the new strategy is: sleep later. It makes the day go faster in those situations where one is not allowed to sit up. The challenge is, Daddy and Toby wake at 7. Toby mostly sings and makes happy noises, and throws everything out of the crib. Daddy tries to be quiet, but closet lights and bathroom lights and dropping things and squeaky drawers and hairdryers... you get the picture. So, the strategy is go BACK to sleep after Daddy and Toby exit.
I have been laying down this whole time... pretty much. But today is hardcore bedrest. I was pretty majorly bummed yesterday - I feel much better today.

We need some discussion up in here. I need to be entertained.

Toddler Gets Stuck in Vending Machine
Wis. Toddler Pursuing a Stuffed Sponge Bob Toy Ends Up Getting Stuck in Vending Machine

The Associated Press
ANTIGO, Wis. - Three-year-old Robert Moore went fishing for a stuffed replica of Sponge Bob and ended up trapped in a vending machine. The toddler's adventure began with a Saturday evening shopping trip with his grandmother, Fredricka Bierdemann, and three siblings.
Bierdemann ended the trip by giving each child a dollar and telling them to have fun in a retailer's game room.

A stuffed Sponge Bob in a vending machine's bin caught Robert's eye. He tried without success to fish it out with a plastic crane.

"I told him I could get it for him," his grandmother said. "He's a character. He said, 'Oh no, I can get it.'"

When she turned her back to get another dollar for a second try, Robert took off his coat and squeezed through an opening in the machine. He landed in the stuffed animal cube.

"I turned around and looked for him, and he said, 'Oma, I'm in here," Bierdemann said. "I thought I would have a heart attack."

Store employees couldn't find a key to the machine, so Robert waited while the Antigo Fire Department was called.

"He was having a ball in there, hugging all the stuffed animals," Bierdemann said. "He was so good-natured, but I was shaking like a leaf."

Firefighters broke one lock but then spotted two latches inside the plastic cube. They passed a screwdriver to Robert.

"He stacked up all the stuffed animals and used that screwdriver to open the latch," his grandmother said. "You should have seen him go."

Eventually, Robert freed himself. But his mother, Marie Moore, and grandmother said they were lucky that he remained calm when another child might not have. He went home safe but without a stuffed Sponge Bob.
