Why Do I Need A Nap More Than My Kids Do?


I just tried to trick my kids into napping. “Come on guys! Let’s all go lay in Mommy’s bed together”. I shut the lights, tucked them in… and they started to role play. If I wasn’t utterly exhausted, I would be excited to watch my kids being so creative.

But all I want is like 20 minutes and it’s just not going to happen.

And funny enough, my afternoon playdate is hanging out in my driveway until her sons wake up from their nap. So at any moment this house is going to explode. I guess I have to make it through this day zombie-esq. It won’t be the first time – and it certainly won’t be the last! LOL

Is it Friday yet?
