Crackers in Bed

I love Norman Rockwell's work but only just discovered this painting from early in his career: Crackers in Bed (1921).


In our house the kids not infrequently stay up late to finish an especially gripping story and despite our best efforts to keep them from eating in bed, somehow it seems they frequently manage to smuggle in some sustenance to keep them going. If he had painted this in our house, it might have been titled Crumbs in Bed.
