Saturday night Ranaan and I had a long overdue date night. We had a lovely dinner, a few drinks and didn’t get home until 1 am, I haven’t been out that late in ages (but really ever)!
Needless to say the next day I didn’t feel so fabulous. When I finally had the chance to take a quick nap, I could NOT fall asleep. I was getting so frustrated. I couldn’t stop thinking of all of the things I needed to do and how selfish I had been. Not only for the night before, but also for wanting to nap. Then I started questioning why I was having those feelings. Why is it that I feel guilty for wanting to nap? Many of you know that a hot topic of conversation between moms is what nap schedule your baby has. I am more or less on Roderick’s schedule as we both have to get up at the same time. Why then does it feel so “unnatural” and like I’m failing if I take a nap mid day? Obviously when I am tired my thoughts go down a dark spiral pretty quickly lol, but does anyone else have these feelings? Are there any other tired mamas out there who would love to take a nap but feel as though they “shouldn’t”? What are your solutions?
