The starting point of this little story was a conversation with my daughter Lily. Her son was no longer sleeping in a crib and getting used to a junior bed. He went through a period of waking up very early, around 5:30 in the morning, and coming to his parent’s bedroom. Needless to say, she was tired and annoyed with the whole situation.
In one of our phone conversations, I thought a story approach might help. Most of the story is exactly the story I told her spontaneously on the phone. I wrote it down and sent it to her. Once I shared the story with friends, the pictures were inevitable.
“Everyone is Asleep but Me” is dedicated to my grandchildren, Erez, Maya, Ethan and Milan who inspired the story. These days, they’re all great sleepers!
