There are some human activities that are universal. Everyone eats and sleeps.
All parents know how difficult it can be to get a young baby to sleep through the night. In the Sunday page above, from October 1, 1989, Trixie somehow mangages to get out of her crib in the middle of the night. Lois then lets Trixie go to sleep in their bed. This is usually not a good idea for parents with a restless baby. In this case, Trixie is the one who is kept awake.
Families can be dysfunctional when it comes to sleeping. Especially on a hot August night as in this episode from 2013.
In this sequence from 2015, Hi, Lois, Chip, Dot and Ditto are all having trouble sleeping. Trixie is the only one who is getting a good night's sleep.
Sweet dreams to all of our loyal fans out there!
