Today I took a nap.

Sounds so mundane, doesn't it? But naps are so underrated!

The non-mundane part of it is that I ignored all of the house things I usually run around and take care of as soon as one or both (when I'm lucky) children are asleep. But with the craziness of life lately--yes, my life is normally all crazy but it seems to have taken on a different form of craziness and it's leaving me all out of sorts--I'm finding myself bending a fair number of rules.

So today my children both napped--at the same time--and I ignored my chores. A sink full of dirty dishes. Laundry basket full of clothes needing to be folded. Toys strewn the full length of the living room. And I laid my little head down on the couch pillow and took a nap. Bliss.

Of course all of those things were still waiting for me when I woke up. But at least I was rested--or something close to that. I have two children under the age of 3. Honestly, how rested can I really be?!

How brave to take a nap! I always knew it was a good idea but could never tear myself away from the chores. You definatly did the right thing!

A nap, what is that! I haven't had a nap in quite some time now and I think they should be mandatory! Glad you got some well deserved rest.
