Thank Goodness for Naps!

When Matthew was a baby, there was a time that he would not nap unless we were in the car. I am not exaggerating! Every day, we would get in the car and drive around until he was asleep. There were some days that I was so tired that I would park the car in the drive way, recline my seat back, and nap with him in the car. I haven't been that tired in a long time! Until yesterday! I was so tired. I seriously needed a nap. And miracles did happen when both Matthew and Molly fell asleep at the same time (in the car, just like old times). I brought them in, tucked Matthew in bed and laid Molly in her crib still in her car seat, and jumped into bed with a breath of thanks to God for giving me that nap. It was the best hour and 15 minutes ever. Today, my thanks are to my parents for watching the kiddos while I napped again! I think my body is still trying to get over my pneumonia and it just kind of hit me all at once. Now, I'm off to shower and brush my teeth, yes I know it's 4:33 pm. I love the weekend!

3 people had nice things to say:

The next best thing to a nap is brushing your teeth for the first time, after 4:00 pm!

I think naps are wasted on the young. Its really us grown-ups who need and want them!!

Hope you are continuing to feel better after your run-in with ole pneumonia!

Love you!
