Oh, how I love nap time. oh, how I love nap tiiiiime. Oh, how I love nap time, becauuuse it first loved me.
Carter napped for about 4 1/2 hours today, not all at once but usually he only naps for a total of 3 hours a day, then sleep through the night. (Which is completely normal) But nap time is really called MY TIME.. not Stephen time or house cleaning time... but MY time. Keeps me sane, really. And as we all know... A HAPPY WIFE IS A HAPPY LIFE! I get to watch my shows (CSI, 24, Crossing Jordan, and too much Disney channel).
That brings up a whole 'nother issue... why do I love Disney channel?? It's odd and quite embarrasing, or should be, but I don't care. I'll willing admit that I, a married 23 year old mother, think Hannah Montana is awesome and Raven (That's so Raven) is quite hilarious. In fact, I even started saying "Oh, snap" from watching that show. I'm not so much a fan of Nickelodeon, Disney is much more wholesome, oddly enough. But why do I enjoy watching these shows that are created for the tween generation? I hate being too serious, I've gone through enough serious things in my life, I just want to be a kid... FOREVER! I want to build forts, climb trees, paint pictures, babysit babies (mine in particular), have a really cute Ken doll (aka Stephen) and not have a care in the world.... and I pretty much have that. It's quite awesome. I have been so blessed, I can't even begin to say.
So word to the single women, find a man who loves to bbq, loves to make lots of $$, and loves to love you and spoil you... ok, it sounded better in my head. Obviously, that's what every woman wants, right? But granted when I met Stephen, he worked at a meat shop and I payed for the majority of the dates for the first year. But it was time and money well invested because now I am living the high life. Granted I don't have a car but gas prices are too high anyway and I don't really have anywhere to go but to buy more painting supplies and diapers.
Well, Carter is done bathing, I think. He has started throwing all his toys out of the tub and won't stay on his bum. But all that to say, a little me time does a momma and a family good. Thank God for making NAP TIME!! Yay!
