It's usually the same crowd during the day- lots of stay at home moms and kids and/or nannies and the kids. Pretty easy crowd.
Well, that day, a woman came in with her four year old daughter. The daughter went to play and the mom put her head down on the table and left it there for a while. Being that I have some of the youngest kids there, I am usually on the play area with them to watch them. This little girl was desperately craving some attention, so she started talking to us.
After a while, the little girl went over to her mom and started asking her a question. I couldn't hear what was said (and you know I was eavesdropping), but I did hear the mom reply, "Honey, go play. I'm tired and need to rest."
And then she did this...
She was full on NAPPING on the bench! What?!
Never in a jillion years would I leave my kids unattended in a public (or even my own private home!!) place. Eesh! She was out for a good 20 minutes.
The poor girl came and sat with us while we ate and just chatted with us. I didn't know what to do! We needed to leave, but I felt bad for the girl. I was tempted to go tell the front or go wake the lady up and offer to buy her some coffee. WEIRD!
A few seconds after I had my internal debate, the woman popped up and came over to the play area and started playing like she had been doing it the whole time.
I was baffled.
Ps- those pictures kind of creep me out. I feel like it looks like my kids emerging from the birth canal!!
