Ahh naptime, seems simple enough according to the dictionary definition. But what does it really entail? Here is the naptime definition from the dictionary of MOM.
NAPTIME: That sweet lovin’ time of day when baby/toddler/preschooler lays their precious little head down and falls asleep for an extended period of time. Bonus points if they sleep in their own bed. Bonus points if they are a school age child napping in the summer. Yes, naptime is a game, and scores are kept.
A time when mom does the following, not ONE of the following, but ALL OF THEM: takes a shower, eats breakfast AND lunch, picks up toys, cleans the bathrooms, washes/dries/folds laundry, cleans up breakfast/lunch mess, goes to the bathroom (glorious), pulls weeds. sweeps the floor, thinks a thought without forgetting what she is thinking about, mops the floor, picks up dog poop, takes out the trash, calls her husband and tries to sound perky, organizes something, watches 10 minutes of a 60 minute show that she DVR’d (it will take her approximately one week to watch the entire 60 minutes).
What she DOES NOT do: vacuum, empty dishwasher (too loud), speak above a whisper, eat bon bons, nap.
Otherwise known as:
2) Ring the doorbell and die.
3) If you wake the baby up you are grounded forever!
Did I miss anything? Probably. Ironically I am writing this post during naptime….
