It eludes me

We have a pretty strict schedule around here.

It helps contain the crazy outbursts :)

Right after lunch is my favorite time of day.


Both lil boys lay down w/o complaint and go right to sleep.

This is a time when I can get caught up on things that I can't do with Dimples awake. 

Things like : dishes... laundry... reading a book/blogs..

You know productive things.

I am almost always tempted to lay down a take a nap with them.  By this time of day, my body is ready for a little break.  I always resist the urge to nap because I have this irrational fear that I will sleep thru my phone alarm and not wake up to pick up the kids from school. 

Today though I was faced with this :

and this :

How can I resist curling up with one of them and drifting into sheer bliss myself? 

And so I did. I curled up with Dimples (because quite honestly there's no room next to Fishing Pole) and immediately fell into darkness.   As is always my luck, the phone rang 30mins later and I awoke struggling to figure out what that noise was and how to stop it.

Sadly I do not awaken gracefully like Aurora (Sleeping Beauty people.. you should know your Disney..).  I have to fight my way awake and then my brain doesn't work for several minutes later.  Who knows what I said to the person on the other end of the line.  Let's just hope it wasn't important.

And now I've proven the point.. No matter how tempting, I cannot take a nap on a school day.  It just makes it all worse.

17 more days til Summer break and then we are taking naps every day baby!!
