quiet time.

July 8th | older posts


heaven smiled down yesterday and BOTH boys fell asleep in the afternoon.  I didn’t know what to do with myself–this hasn’t happened in years.  So I did what any smart woman would do…I took a nap too.  what would you do with a quiet hour in the afternoon??

    I would curl up with a good book! So glad you got some well-deserved down time!

    You take it when you can when you have little ones. Now…at my age, the naps come more often. Of course, it would help if I didn’t stay up all hours of the night and then get woken up by my husband who gets up at 3:30 AM. Then I get up WAY to early and take a mid-morning nap, and another one later…and so on…and so on…and, zzzzzzz.

    A nap sounds good to me… or a book…

    I have 4.5 year old twins and they nap every afternoon. (yes, I know I’m lucky!) I usually nap, but when I’m not tired, I catch up on junk TV I’ve recorded on Tivo and sneak into the pantry and eat all the snacks I don’t want the twins to see!

    I remember when my daughter was young. Nap times were the best! I would want to be so creative during that time, but I suspect, taking a nap myself would have been a welcomed indulgence.

    journal. it seems my mind is always needing some quiet time to process what is happening in all the great, but loud, minutes.
