How To Take a Summer Afternoon Nap.

1. Run around like a crazy person all morning until your muscles get that heavy, exhausted feeling.

2. Find yourself a comfy hammock.

3. Let out one long, contented sigh and close your eyes.

4.Charm someone into keeping the rocking going and your face shaded long after you fall asleep.

That’s how my Tori does it. And she? Seems to have this life thing all figured out. We could all learn a thing or three from her…

      At least for an afternoon or two. However, I like my curfew-free life, so I wouldn’t want to go back there for too long!

    I am jealous of her. Probably more than I should be.

    Oh man, I want to take a nap time that. A perfect way to spend a summer afternoon.

    I wonder what I would have to do to get my hubby to hold an umbrella like that for me?

      Even my baby doesn’t always sleep like a baby. But it would be nice, every once in a while.
