An Important Lesson

Today I was tired, so I took a nap.

I let the kids play their Nintendo DSi games, and I slept, for over an hour.

I was upstairs, with the door open, with a calico cat snuggled into the back of my legs. I could have heard them if there were any trouble.

There was no trouble.

They were happy, since DSI’s are usually not allowed during the school week.

I am rested.

I was tired, so I took a nap.

Don’t say I didn’t teach them anything today.

    Good for you! Sometimes you need to do that in order to take care of yourself. I’ve also been known to drift off during a few episodes of Dora and Diego on Nick Jr.

    Teaching self care might be at the top of the list of things we need to teach our kids.
