Rules of Motherhood

Today we will discuss: The Rules of Nap Time
  1. No cleaning, laundry, dishes, sorting, etc. is to be done during this time!
  2. You are allowed to take a nap yourself--though you may want to hold off and take this while your kids are watching a show
  3. Eat any extra cookies, chocolate, candy that you do not want your kids to have at this time
  4. Waste ample time on the computer, watching TV, or any other mindless, but legal, activity you can think of
  5. See rule number 1!
  6. Mostly enjoy this time--before you know it the kids will be awake again.


  1. You're a genius, Em. I don't know how you come up with this stuff, but it's spot-on. Absolutely brilliant. I'm applauding as I type. Bravo, bravo. :)

  2. Thanks! :) I actually thought of it all on my own.

  3. I will add to the cookie, cake rule by saying any consumed at this time do not count because they were not your calories in the first place. This was great.

  4. Couldn't agree more! What a fantastically useful and fun blog you have here!

  5. I think this needs to be framed and on my living room wall:)
    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. I can't imagine going through a major surgery at such a young age. I hope you don't have any issues now and that your heart is treating you well.

  6. I felt as though I had written those rules! And I'm so glad I'm not the only one that sneaks treats I don't want my kids to have- hehehe!
