Aloha Friday



Seeing how it is Friday, today's question is going to require as little brain power as possible.

The question for today: Do you take naps?

Absolutely! I adore naps! Not only do I adore naps, but my entire family does as well. I was very fortunate to have babies and children who were excellent nappers and needed them. Now as teens they truly enjoy a good nap on the weekends. Fortunately for me, I am able to nap during the weekdays as well. :)

You are lucky that the babies were good nappers :)
Actually who doesn't like a good nap ;)

Kara said...

Great question! Yes...but not near as often as I'd like.

Here's mine:

Every chance I get - but that's IF I don't have any other chores to take care of first!

Used to... sadly...not anymore!
Aloha!

Oh my goodness, I LOVE naps. I can't always indulge, but when I can, it's usually a wonderful evening after that.

Ave said...

As i'm living in Spain now, and they have "siesta" then I take a nap some hours after lunch. I love naps.

East Coast Wahine said...

I try too! *L* When I babysit the grandkids and put them down for their nap....I take one too!

Andrea McMann said...

I wish I could nap more often. It's getting to the point where my almost-four-year-old daughter only naps for a short time, and very reluctantly, so I'm usually better off having some "me time" or getting something done.

Kari said...

When my kids were little, before they started school, I would take naps with them quite often. But, now they are all in school and I just don't seem to find the time. I do love a good nap, though.

Veronica Lee said...

Only short ones!!

pam said...

I am a lover of naps as well. Very rarely now do I get the chance, though. If I am sick I always try to though!

Mighty M said...

Nope, but I look forward to the day when I am able to fit one in again (time I have plenty of, ALONE time however is another matter entirely). ;-)

Leslie M. said...

I cannot nap. I have horrible insomnia. I just can't sleep. I think naps are great though!!
Hugs,

I used to nap when lil' D would nap years ago. Unfortunately, now when I nap it's at night, and then I wake up and can't fall back asleep. I did it Wednesday night. Fell asleep at 9 on the couch and woke up after midnight. Couldn't get back to sleep until after 2am. Thanks for your comment. I just think of all the fashion disasters I could have avoided having a uniform. Aloha and take care.

I love naps, though I don't get to do it every day...

I love the idea of naps, but I always wake up feeling too groggy. It makes the rest of the day much worse for me, so I try to avoid taking naps unless I just can't bear staying awake.

AudreyO said...

I do take a nap sometimes on Saturday if I'm home. Otherwise, no naps for me.

MOMMY-MOMO said...

my toddler is a early riser so i usually take a small nap while he is. I never used to... haha what kids will do to you. makes me constantly exhausted!

Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

I do TRY to take naps. Most days, though, I'm not able to rest as that's when the baby goes crazy and starts kicking up a storm.

The Mommy-Files said...

I wish I did! Sometimes I do :) I love it when I get to. ♥ Happy Friday! ♥

Jenny Girl said...

I someitmes nap on the weekends. Depends if I need one or not. Sometimes I wish I could take one at work, but don't get me started on that :)

Pamela M. Kramer said...

I don't really take naps. Naps take me! rofl...
My body just shuts down at different times. I'm a fan of naps for sure.

~*~ Melissa ~*~ said...

Sometimes you just need one! I'm feeling it now, but I will fight it ;)

TheAngelForever said...

I wish I could nap more often. If/when my little guy naps I do laundry and catch up on things that need to be done. My oldest gave up naps 2 years ago - *sigh*

Elle said...

OMG! Naps are my favorite! I would take a nap every day if I could. My husband comes from a family that thinks napping during the day is sinful. Fortunately, he's come around to my way of thinking so I don't have to nap in secret :)

wkiskizt said...

How on earth would we live without naps? I usually take one when my baby does, usually in the late morning but sometimes in the early afternoon instead. I have a hard time relaxing to fall asleep at night, but I can take a nap in an instant.

Shelly said...

I try not to take naps because it messes with my night's sleep. But if I'm exhausted or sick, I will definitely lie down for a couple of hours.

Nina said...

My youngest is not a napper so I rarely get a nap. Plus when he is napping I try to enjoy as much of that time as I can to get something done. I do like a good nap just never get to have one.

Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom said...

Oh I so love naps! I used to not need them, but as I get older, I really think I do. My daughter loves hers too - well now that she is 13. She never napped when she was a baby or little one, which was very aggravating. I'm so happy to reach a point in my life where I actually CAN nap!

Great question!

The Social Frog said...

I do take naps but not very often, depends on the lack of sleep I get,lol.

Thom said...

Nope I think I'm missing to much if I do :) Have a great Friday :)

Mrs. Marine said...

I can only take naps if I dont drink coffee in the morning and I am really tired... Unlike my husband who can nap anytime anywhere.

JamericanSpice said...

No I dont take naps...maybe on Sundays if I cannot help it. The children however still take naps. One is four and the other two.

Becca said...

I love to nap, and tend to do it whenever I have time. I really get tired most afternoons around this time actually, and napping just refreshes me :)

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Very rarely. The last time I accidentally fell asleep on the couch (while I was trying to get the little one to fall back asleep)my four year old opened the gate and I had no idea that the little one left me and went out the gate. During the three minute period I was zonked out the little one managed to crawl up the stairs and then he proceeded to fall down them. I woke up to screaming upset little guy on the landing of the stairs.

Definitely not taking a nap for a while...

Vicki said...

No. If I do fall asleep during the day I feel like I'm in Twilight Zone when I wake up.

Flying Giggles and Lollipops said...

Not as often as I would like. It seems as if there is always one child awake at all times in this house!

Brandi said...

Sometimes...but usually about the time that I actually wind down and fall asleep my little one wakes up! :)

Erica said...

every chance i get i do (not as often as i would like but whatcha gonna do) I love a good nap. :)

Auntie E said...

No, I am busy from the time I get up to the time I fall down in bed.

Jessie Kaitlin said...

As often as I can with my 8 month old :)
