The Power of Naps

Naptime is a beautiful thing! It is my time to do chores, answer emails, blog, and just veg if I want. But it has been a struggle around our house for a while. Kailey is trying to outgrow her nap and mom is trying VERY hard to keep it going! She wants to rest on the couch and watch a movie or look at books. That all sounds fine but it only lasts about 5 minutes and then she is up following me around the house and come 3:30 she is a bear! So today, I had a brilliant idea! I asked her if she wanted to take a nap with me? To my suprise she said YES. We slept and snuggled for an hour and a half. It was nice to sleep, but it made my day that she wanted to snuggle up next to me. I have missed that! I'm not sure that will work everyday but today it did! And i am feeling recharged. Also, can i just say that I am loving this fall like weather. It has been sorta dreary with all of the rain but the cool temps are great. I am so ready for the leaves to change, for apple cider, carving pumpkins, warm soup, and my very favorite...flannel sheets!

I want to send out a huge thanks for those of you who constantly check in here and leave me comments. I really look foward to reading them and hearing from you! THANK YOU!!!
