Things I Think About at Nap Time

The floor doesn’t look that dirty. I’ll wash it tomorrow. The episode of Scandal on the DVR is totally time-sensitive though.

Perfect! Now I can run to the store. Oh wait…

(In the middle of folding a huge pile of laundry) I think I hear the baby waking up in the other room. Better stop what I’m doing and go check.

I bet the vacuum cleaner will wake him up. I better not risk it.

I’ve got just enough time to work out in the basement, take a shower and unload the dishwasher. But it’s also the perfect amount of time in which to take a nap and accomplish none of those things.


(In the middle of a workout) I think I hear the baby waking up two floors above me. Better stop this workout and go check.

He’s awake already?! I can’t believe he took such a short nap. Oh wait, I just spent two hours laughing at Ryan Gosling memes and Youtube videos of cats online. My bad.

(In the middle of an intense episode of Rehab Addict) I think I can hear the baby waking up down the hall. Better finish this episode before I go get him.

Wow. I actually folded the laundry, emptied the dishwasher and straightened up the house. My husband better not get used to this. Tomorrow I’m napping instead.
