I am a nap person. I always have been. Even though I try to get the nine hours of sleep that I really need each night, I also function best if I can get a quick catnap each afternoon.
The fact is, however, that naps are not always so easy to schedule. What with my job, errands, cleaning, my job, picking up the girls from school, schlepping the girls hither and yon, my job, homework, reading blogs, and whatnot, it's hard to find time for a nap.
But I do manage, sometimes even during the week.
Naps are mandatory on the weekends, and Pete and I often have to negotiate who gets the sofa and when.
The sofa is the favored napping spot in Jenworld because it's like sleeping on clouds. On CLOUDS, I tell you. We even have various throw pillows and a small blanket on hand, just in case.
It's been this way since we got it when Elegant was a baby:
And has remained that way ever since.
Not that the girls nap all that often. They each gave up naps when they were about two, but very now and then, someone needs to recharge her batteries:
Sometimes, the napping isn't very peaceful:
And sometimes the naps aren't alone:
Sometimes naps SHOULD be on the sofa, but don't quite make it that far:
And sometimes the naps are necessary when someone is sick:
The most important thing of all, is that no one disturb the mom or the dad when they're napping on the sofa!
