What are you doing right now? Me? I am sitting in my in-law's living room with a computer on my lap, typing in silence a post about napping while the girls nap and I will certainly hate myself a little for writing later. But really, I just love nap time and I shudder when I think of it not not happening for every party of the household some day. From the day Lucy was born I started to make it my life's work to get her to nap at the same time as Naomi and Bernadette, I did the same thing after Bernadette was born making it coincide with Naomi's nap- I dare say I am a tad anal about it. I honestly don't know what I would do without this much needed mid-day break and for myself and the children. Even while we are on vacation and entering the last few days before my little sister gets married and the families are all together and the little ones are running around like crazy allllll day.
While most of the cousins age 3 and up play and make merry over at my parents' house, I have ever-so-meanly torn them away from the festivities because I am overly obsessed with their schedules, or more precisely, with NAP TIME. It is an addiction of sorts.
I really don't think about it much during the day-to-day other than when it dictates our life because Lucy is on her 3rd nap of the day and making it so we cannot leave the house, but who cares? I am hands-free, she is sleeping and happier when she wakes up than when she was yelping angrily in my arms.

|You need sleep for these moves.|
For now I will relish it and keep being the loser who needs to leave the party early for her kids to sleep.
