My goal in life is not to be a "helicopter" parent. I do love my kids and I enjoy doing things for them and with them, but I DO NOT want to be tied to them forever at the hip! I enjoy a little time to myself now and then. I want them to grow, flourish and be secure, independent souls. They have my permission. I still long for those days my husband and I had when we were first married: picnics, movies, adventures with just him and me...and the S** word too. Uninterrupted S** word time.
But, for now I am still very much "on call". So, I power nap when I need it. Unlike my cat, I cannot sleep just anywhere. I need to climb onto the couch and shut my eyes for my nap. I listen to classical music and drift off.
A solid 15 minutes on a nice comfortable spot can make a world of difference for everyone. I bet if you tried it for a week you'd be hooked and agree too.
