Children aren’t the only ones who need a nap, adults need them too and when you’re a parent, you definitely need and deserve an occasional nap or two.
Today, I was zonked, tired, and a complete mess. I was also a crank despite my best attempt to stay composed. Yes, I may be a great mom but I can get cranky sometimes. Somehow, I made through most of the day and then it was nap time. Although my kid is older now, she benefits from taking a nap especially since we’re up late sometimes.
Well, today, I had a nap. I can proudly say I enjoyed my nap and I’m a much better parent after the nap. I took responsibility for my actions and apologized to my daughter for being cranky today and my daughter apologized for being cranky too.
Now, we’re off to play some board games, happy as can be (she’s waiting for me to finish this because I said I’d post this thought on our website).
See, parents need a nap too. If you haven’t had one yet, I highly recommend it!
