Why do I take naps on Sunday afternoon?

On the weekends that I sing on Worship Team I come home from the third service on Sunday completely exhausted. Bone tired. Newborn tired...I simply can't keep my eyes open and as soon as we say "Amen" after lunch I flee the table and bury myself under the covers and sleep. Sleep hard. It's glorious until it's bed time and suddenly I'm not tired...at all!

I'm sitting here watching the TLC show John and Kate plus 8. Has anybody seen this show? It's hilarious! I'm in awe of this woman who has a set of twin girls who are 7 and sextuplets who are three. She is amazingly organized, completely involved with her kids and so very real. I watch this family and think that if they can do this with 8 kids I can certainly handle my 4. And secretly I think, well, my kids aren't that bad.

Wrestling is big in our house right now. That's all the boys do all day long...that and jump off the coffee table into the bean bag chairs. It's a little nuts. The funny thing is that Wesley(the baby) is big enough and tough enough to take down every last one of his siblings. It's so much fun to watch all of them play together.

Well, I should start turning off the lights and trying to force myself to get sleepy..wish me luck!

I love Sunday naps. I've been taking them alot more as of late... like for the last 6 months. Sundays are truly a day of rest for me. I don't make a big lunch much anymore either. We just kind of do a snacky lunch thing after church. I'm not a big football fan, so I don't watch much of that. I do read or computer stuff and sleep. Yea for naps!

I love Jon and Kate!! Watch them interact and you will see me and Tim. We are EXACTLY like them. hee hee She's my hero.

I never take Sunday naps anymore. Last time I did I ended up with Wyatt. Learned my lesson.

It's so weird that you say that because I almost wrote that she reminds me of you!

I love napping. That said, my bed is my most favorite place. Really. I want to spend some $ & get some really, really wonderful sheets & I also hope to make our bedroom more peaceful & pretty.

I want to see this show! I've never heard of it. Thanks for sharing! :)
