Yesterday I had a Nanna Nap for the first time in months!
I don't normally nap during the day as I find it usually affects how I sleep at night. I can never get to bed at a decent hour and if I do I have a very restless sleep as I'm not really tired.
But yesterday I had to go to bed. I have a slight headcold. The normal symptoms aren't too bad, just yet at least. Mostly just a dry throat and the sneezes. But the last couple of days have been very exhausting.
Yesterday we were out in the morning running some basic errands and I was falling asleep in the car at 10.30am!!
So by 1.30 I'd had enough and went to bed. Eli came for a nap too.
I was so grateful that today was one of Brians days off so he was able to watch Ethan and then Eli when he woke.
Brian was such a darling that he cooked dinner, a yummy vegie ladened lamb stew made with lamb offcuts, brought in all the dry washing and folded and washed more and hung it out.
Normally I find having a cuppa tea between 1pm ~ 2pm will get me through the afternoon slump that I know so many stay at home mums suffer from. But that was just not going to cut it yesterday.
Do you Nanna Nap? How do you cope with the afternoon slump?
