Children should appreciate naps more.
Thing 1 has not been doing a good job of napping this week. And I know it’s a bit cliché. But I do wish the boys could appreciate how great it is to be able to take a nap. I could quite happily doze off during their nap time. Thing 2&3’s dad arrived home from work at lunch time and took a nap whilst the boys slept. But the boys would rather be doing anything but sleeping.
I would ask how it is that I can be more tired than them at naptime, but this week at least I do have an answer. Thing 1 has mostly been sleeping well at night – anywhere from 9-11 hours, from what I’ve been told.
I, on the other hand, seem to be barely able to get six hours, if I’m lucky.
Which is why I’m going to bed now. To see if I can get a bit more sleep.
