Today I am grateful for peace and quite and a little break to take a breath, eat my lunch and rest a little.
Naptime serves many purposes for both of us. His reasons are obvious, he needs to sleep to grow, he needs to gear up for the afternoon of madness that is being a 2 year old boy. Mama needs it for many other reasons.
Naptime is my PTO. I get everything or nothing done during naptime. I get the one meal of the day were dimpled hands are not grabbing at my food or my chin asking me to “aaaa” wanting to look at my chewed up food. It’s when I get to read a magazine, watch tv, clean up, take a shower and sometimes, take a nap too.
Oh, naps! I’m a sleeper, always have been. I know you will shake your head but I need 9 hours of sleep per night to survive. I’m not much for sleeping in though, I make it to bed around 10 so I get my sleep by the time Nate wakes up around 7:30. So I get a lot of sleep and sometimes I curl up on the couch and take a nap in the middle of the day. Sometimes I even go to bed.
Ahhh, it’s good! Naptime, please stick around until pre-school. Please?
