Naptime


Mommy Musing: Naptime

I don't want to say that naptime is my favorite time of the day because there are so many things I love about being a mom. But I do look forward to naptime every day. It's that hour or so in the afternoon when the house is quiet and peaceful, when I know that the quiet doesn't signal that someone may be busy getting into trouble :) It's that little bit of time during the day that's mine - and let's face it, as a parent those times are in very short supply. At any time we may be "needed" to fill a sippy cup, give a hug, look at this morning's creation, break up a fight, put on a band-aid...honestly I'm exhausted by noon!

A lot of moms use naptime to get things done. Nope, not me. First off, my kids aren't deep sleepers so I don't want to make any noise that will disturb them (that's why the most recent photos I could find of Tyler asleep are from October. I just can't sneek in there and snap one, even though he looks so cute when he's asleep). But mostly I just need the time to indulge myself so I use the time to read, or scrapbook, or mess around on the computer (ok I do that even when they aren't sleeping). And so for today Happiness is...Naptime :)

I also adore naptime! I usually read a little and then have a nap myself so I can make it through the rest of the day!
