Eighty Nine: Nap Time

“When the going gets tough, the tough take a nap.”  – Tom Hodgkinson

Sunday, March 30th

Today was the make-up day for the community work party. Some people worked yesterday, less worked today. I did a half day yesterday in the rain, and had a full day of minding my kids while my husband worked. It felt like a quadruple shift this weekend. Some days parenting is not the rosy energizing experience it looks like in the parenting mags. Ummm, most days?

But what do you know? A nap did me wonders. I had some very foolish illusions that I could convince my kids to nap with me. Instead, I moved in and out of lucidity while the kids read books, moved their teddies into the room, and bounced off my head. But it was still glorious!

Do you make room in your life for naps?
