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!!
