I’ve felt a bit under the weather this week, so I’ve been very, very covetous of Ali’s naps. But alas, her naptime is my only opportunity to get two jobs and three blogs attended to, so me napping is not exactly an option.
HOWEVER, I have discovered a little power nap solution that has been quite blissful.
A half hour before Ali’s naptime, I’ll pull out my nice and generous Mommy Voice and say, “Hey baby, it’s naptime, but would you like a special treat of getting to watch Thomas, Veggie Tales, or Curious George first???”
Of course, she thinks I’m the most wonderful Mommy in the world.
So we cuddle up together on the couch, I turn on the show, and I go to sleep.
When the show is over, she starts poking at my eyes, and I know it’s time to wake up and put her to sleep.
By the way – that short-power-naps are better than long-naps theory? Totally true. I just hope Ali doesn’t discover that fact.
At any rate, my new napping discovery is totally awesome.
Except that I’ve been having some very strange nap-dreams, that have just added to my unhealthy obsession with Ali’s cartoons…
In this Week’s episode of Soap Opera Digest:

Strange, maybe…but totally worth it for the nap.
