Sleeping Comparison

Could you ask for a more peaceful scene than this? Genna, wrapped in her blanket, head on her princess pillow, her hands tucked beneath her cheek, piggy close by, and a spread of books around her (toe nails polished). I just want to curl up beside her and go to sleep.

But then you come across Kate and are confronted with her double (triple?) jointedness. How do her shoulders fold to enable her to sleep with both of her arms behind her? I'm afraid some gypsy circus is going to rumble by and enroll her to one of their shows.
