Fact. My kids are not great sleepers, never have been. They apparently don't need much sleep to thrive...apparently I can blame that trait on my DNA.
Fact. My husband is an excellent sleeper. Why didn't they get his DNA?
Anyway, we're a no nap household as of late. One would think of my earlier sleeping woes and suspect I would be mourning the loss of the nap.
Quite the opposite, actually. Skipping the effort required to get ready for a nap is quite grand. We have freedom and flexibility and more time for projects! Plus, as a bonus, better night time sleepers....as in both slept all night last night and I slept 6 hours straight (first time in 4 1/2 years!).
So yes, we are a no nap family right now and I'm quite content with that.
For the most part anyway, as I might have done a little celebratory dance when they both randomly agreed on a great day/ time to nap last week. Both kids sleeping AT THE SAME TIME?! Time to sew by myself? How relaxing! When did that happen last?
What was all that rambling I was doing? I'm ridiculous. I take all that back. Napping is good. Sleeping is good. Could someone please convey that to my children?
