Being a stay at home mom (SAHM) can be tough sometimes. But even on the worst days, I always have one saving grace to look forward to...nap time. No matter how our morning starts out, it usually turns around after nap time. And when I say "it usually turns around," I mean that Mommy gets a little break and is able to face the afternoon with renewed energy, positivity and peace.
I am fortunate because my son is almost 4 and he still takes a 2 hour nap every day. I know plenty of other kids his age who have given up their daily nap. I can sympathize with their moms because I just can't imagine what it must be like to face those difficult Mommy days without the promise of a break.
This week has been a rough one. My 2 year old has only slept about 30 minutes for her afternoon nap. It's torture! She's fighting a cold so after about 30 minutes of sleep her nose starts running and she begins to cough and wakes up. But unfortunately she will not go back to sleep.
I am hoping (praying) that this is only a temporary setback in our nap schedule and that after she feels better she will resume her regular 2 hour nap again. But in the meantime, Mommy needs a Mommy break!
For all of you SAHM's, what do you do to maintain your sanity? It'd be nice to have a backup plan for weeks like these!
