I was at one of Lillyana’s many social engagements and was talking about how busy the kids have been since school started to another mother. I mentioned that I was relieved the Lilly still napped on the weekends. She was shocked.
I assumed that all children still napped. We plan our days around it sometimes. Perhaps I am just blessed that my children have always been good nappers. At 1pm on the dot they are in bed with their heads down for at least one hour. Lilly does not nap in kindergarten but we make her nap on the weekends. I think it is important for kids to rest.
Life is already so busy – wouldn’t we all be a little happier if we closed our eyes for twenty minutes on the weekends? I don’t mean going to bed an hour early. I mean really darkening the room, turning off the TV, shutting off the phone and taking a nap. I try to squeeze one in now and then. Alex can sleep anywhere....even Home Depot if he is tired enough.
Do your kids still nap? Do you nap? Don’t you think the world would be better if we all napped for twenty minutes a day?
This post made me extremely sleepy.
