Naps

I used to never take naps before I had kids. Now I relish nap time! Whether I take a nap or do something else productive, it's my quiet time without the kids treating me like a jungle gym! The boys unfortunately rarely take a nap anymore. This weekend was different though. They took naps Saturday and Sunday. Yesterday it didn't look like they were going to take a nap, so I announced I was going upstairs to take a nap. I got in the bed followed shortly by the 2 dogs. Shortly after that Twin B comes up the stairs and says he wants to take a nap with me in my bed, so I told him to hop in and BE QUIET! Twin A, not wanting to be left out pops in not too much later to nap with us. Let's count this up...1 adult, 2 smallish dogs and 2 4 year olds. Poor Twin A was curled up at the bottom of the bed. We all had a nice nap though. Maybe I have found the key to getting the boys to take naps - just take one myself and they will soon follow! I hope everyone else had a restful weekend too.

What a snuggly picture! I used to think there was nothing as relaxing as napping with a little kid. They get so warm and cute. I do miss that!

I take a nap every Sunday afternoon. I work from 8:30am - 9pm, but I have a three hour break, and I need my nap. It's really a special time of the week! I love it, and the four cats snuggle up with me.
