Better late than never for a nap

Oh how I love my naps. Before Julia, I could nap whenever I wanted. Well, not really, I had to stay away for work. But I often came home from work and slept from 5-8pm. It totally screwed me up for the rest of the week because I'd fall asleep around 3-4am and then have to get up at 6am. But it was so nice to catch up on sleep whenever I wanted.

Blame it on anemia or a protein deficiency or having a toddler, but I still love napping. I love napping while she naps. This weekend, though, I didn't get the opportunity to nap while she did. That meant that today (Sunday) was my 7th day without a nap, and even the thought is just horrible. Well, I was falling asleep by 5pm due to Nap Withdrawal Syndrome (NWS), and my dear husband took over while I slept. He oversaw Julia's Dinner 1, bath & Dinner 2 while my lazy butt slept.

I wake up refreshed at 8:30pm, Julia's asleep, he's practically asleep, and now I likely have another 5 hours before I fall asleep. I shouldn't have done this to myself, but it felt so darn good while I was doing it!
