Nap Time

Still no word from the Army about the transfer. (see my last post) Should have guessed it wouldn't be on time anyway!

A lot of my friends have kids, which is cool. I like kids, I think they have such cute little clothes, I love their little smiles and sounds and it’s fun watching them grow up and learn new things (Like little baby “Riley” who can now sit up! Too freakin’ cute!). But, as you should know by now, this is not a mommy-blog, due primarily to the fact that I am not a mommy, so I would have even less to write about than I do now.

Things I’ve learned about babies:
-Some of them like to eat paper (not naming any names here, but… cough cough, Riley.)
-Weight gain and loss is a big deal and needs to be monitored. Like, a bigger deal than it is for dieting women. While I’d love to lose weight, it’s not cool when kiddos do it.
-Whichever child I’m with at the time is decidedly the “best age”. In truth: Babies are just freakin’ cute at every age.
-Babies have nap schedules.

I don’t have to (get to) buy cute baby outfits. I’m not worried about which formula has the most calories and I’m still not sure at what age those cuties start teething or talking, but the nap thing, that I can understand. I too, am on a nap schedule.

Yes. This is the most interesting thing I have to blog about today. Stop here if you’d like.

My doctor prescribed yet another new Rx (This makes about 2 dozen in the last 6 months) which is not intended to treat an inability to sleep, but apparently, this is a side effect (along with weight gain, which I’ve also experienced. Hip-hip-freakin’-hooray). I wish I could say how long I’ve been on this particular prescription, but frankly, my days are all blurred together because I’m sleeping for most of them. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s been about 10 days.

Until the “sleepy” side effect wears off (ok, and we’re not talking yawning here, this is like, falling over sleeping ), I am a childless adult who cannot leave the house between 11 and 1, and then again from 3-7 due to nap times. Then I get to take an Ambien to sleep at night because after all those naps, who needs to sleep at night?

Yup. Totally just blogged about my sleep schedule…


  1. When all else fails (like sleep) just blog! Hey I'm all about naps!

  2. when I can't sleep I blog or read. =) good luck with your sleepies!

  3. If only I didn't have to work and could nap. I love naps. Funnily enough, I did not nap as a child. I started sleeping through the night at 3 weeks old. Like really sleeping through the night. Like the doctor recommended my mother wake me after 12 hours to eat. But I gave up naps. Cuz opposite of you right now, when you sleep 12 hours at night, who needs a nap? But it made nap time at day care really super boring. I wanted to play!

    I totally take back all the times I didn't want to nap as a kid.


Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like this, compulsive, need, to be liked. Like my need to be praised. - Michael Scott, "The Office"
