15 Places I Wish I Could Nap

Nap Raleigh Moms Blog

Being a mom of two has brought a whole new level of exhaustion to my life. With my first child, I was tired, but adding a second child has upped the bar. The advice “sleep when the baby sleeps” worked well for my oldest. He’d nap, I’d nap, not always, but it was definitely a real possibility. Fast forward 5 years and naps are impossible. With a 5 year age gap between my kids, my oldest doesn’t nap anymore and his schedule is much more demanding. There’s carpool daily and gymnastics weekly. There’s playdates and one-on-one mommy time.

Baby #2 is not a great sleeper. He seems to thrive on a 10 minute car nap. On a good night, he’s up every 3 hours to eat. Some nights it’s every 1-2 hours. As soon as my head hits the pillow and I close my eyes I feel like I’m up again. The struggle is real! I’m exhuasted and long for a nap. Here’s a list of all the places I daydream about napping.

  1. The waiting room at the doctor’s office. 
  2. The third row of the van. 
  3. The couches in the lobby of my son’s preschool. 
  4. The comfy glider in the church’s mother’s room. 
  5. The benches at the park. 
  6. A booth at Chick-fil-a. 
  7. My husband’s office. Does he take naps under his desk? Because I totally would if I were him. 
  8. The shower. 
  9. The locker room at the gym. That’s what the childcare is for, right?
  10. The dentist chair.
  11. The chair at the salon. You wash, I’ll sleep.
  12. The lawn furniture at Target. 
  13. An airplane. I’ll take a ticket to somewhere warm please! 
  14. A warm pile of laundry. 
  15. My bed. One day…

Kids are exhausting, but time flies. Before long my kids will be sleeping through the night and no longer needing me. I’ll miss those 3 am cuddles, the smiles from a baby that’s fighting a nap. In the mean time, coffee will be my BFF.
