Naps

I'm not a napper-never have been. It's a rare day when I nod off, because I usually feel worse when I've napped than when I haven't, regardless of how tired I am.

But kids are another matter. All my kids were pretty good nappers, and I always looked forward to that peaceful afternoon nap time, as precious for me as it was for them. I looked forward to nap time all morning, not because I needed one, but because I needed the break from the kids. Sorry perfect moms-I admits I needed a break!

Now I have the kids on Mondays and I have to make an admission here. I can actually fall asleep and prepare for the afternoon if I want to.  They wear me out and I feel old. And here I thought grandchildren were supposed to make you feel young.
