An Ode to 3 Hour Naps

<- "Why sleep? I want to drive!"

(Are odes supposed to rhyme? Oh well, mine doesn't. I'm too tired. :)

Oh 3 hour naps, oh 3 hour naps,

Where have you been all my child's life?

You make me feel like I have the best of both worlds;

Both motherhood and sanity.

I feel like dancing around the house (I mean, tiny apartment),

Watching videos on youtube and eating more chocolate.

It might be a good thing you don't come everyday, or else I'd become a whale.

You have strangely come twice this week, and my scale has definitely noticed it.

I don't care. I love you. I want you to stay forever.

You make me feel things I haven't felt in about two years.

But I do have to confess... Whenever I'm with you, I'm thinking of someone else.

Yes. I miss that little girl. Sometimes when I'm with her I think of you, but when I'm with you, I always think of her.

Oh, 3 hour naps, the only way to settle this love triangle is if you make your appearance more regular (like you did this week).

Then I don't miss you when I'm with her... But I can't say the same the other way around.

Maybe that's why you've ignored me for so long.

Regardless, please hear my plea. I promise to watch more non-baby related videos on youtube when you're around.

Now I have to check on her, but I hope you'll come back tomorrow.

With love and gratitude,

Tired Mommy

I'm not a Mom, but I am a nanny, so I value long naps as well :)

Oh, I hope you get more visits from the 3-hour nap!

You crack me up. Been there and it gets better. Or should I say, it changes . . .

Anything over 2 hours and I was just constantly checking to make sure she was okay! I didn't have long to be worried though, my daughter stopped napping when she was 2!

Glad you got some relaxation time. Hope it keeps up!

Love this! Right now regular 45 min naps would be great!
