The evolution of sleep signals

Evangeline has evolved into a new stage of "sleep signals." Whereas before she would yawn, rub her eyes, or perform the "seven mile stare," she now tells us she's tired by going from smiles to crab-cakes in less than five seconds. We descend upon her with the swiftness of a B-2 bomber and lay her in her bed. A grin breaks across her face as if to say, "I have them trained." Then, as we shut the bedroom, her Ewok snores begin.
