It is a sad day today. We have come together to mourn the loss of Evan's Nap. Evan's Nap was a welcome friend when Evan was a baby. It gave a tired and exhausted mother a chance to rest and recuperate. I could count on two lovely and glorious naps where I could catch up on cleaning and sleeping. When the naps were consolidated into one longer nap I was sad but took it in stride.
I knew that Evan's Nap would eventually pass on. It was only a matter of time. I was happy that Evan's Nap lasted as long as it did, after hearing the horror stories from Grandma about how Evan's father's Nap had it's demise when Evan's father was a mere twelve months old. A mom can still hope though.
Evan's Nap's replacement Quiet Time is just not the same, I think that Quiet Time may be fired soon. First off Quiet Time is anything but quiet. It is filled with shrieks like one would hear in a room filled with agitated monkeys. Occasionally the shrieks will destroy Harry's Nap, leaving mom frazzled and annoyed while dealing with a cranky toddler. Quiet Time is also not very relaxing for mom since she has to listen for sharp and loud crashing noises that tell her that you have tripped and fallen while doing something that Evan was not supposed to be doing.
Please excuse my tears, Evan's Nap was a very dear friend and will be sorely missed in the Awesome Mom household.
