Like father, like son

 This kid is his father's son.  In  many ways but most recently:


When I met Bryan and saw his bedroom for the first time I was surprised to discover that he didn't have a bed.  Just a mattress on the floor and a recliner.  He didn't like sleeping in an actual bed, he told me...and spent equal nights reclined in the chair or sprawled out on the floor.  Luckily, Bryan does now spend his nights sharing an actual bed with me.  But naps frequently happen on the floor (the corner of our bedroom and the walk-in closet being his two favorites), or on a love sac in the basement family room.

Brandon seems to have adopted this tendency to favor sleep in places other than the provided bed.  For the past couple of weeks he has been spending his nights in a sleeping bag on a cot.  He keeps asking me to take down the bed.  But besides the fact that his bed also has a host of drawers and shelves that are being utilized and where would we put all that crap (?) I'm hoping that this is a phase he will soon outgrow.  Time will tell.

I spent a summer as a poor college student on a mattress on the floor and don't plan to go back. Thanks for your sweet comment about my photography journey.

I looked at the blog title and the photo and thought it would be about shooting. Surprise, no comments about that tidbit of commonality!

Hey It's Brandon and it's not a phase I will never stop sleeping in that cot. IT'S SO WARM AND AWESOME!

Isn't it so strange the little quirks that can be passed on from parent to child? :)
