A Conversation With a 4-year Old

A conversation with my sweet 4-year old when we were talking about napping.

Mommy: Emmie, why does Mommy take naps?

4-year old: Because she’s bery tired.

Mommy: Really? Why is she very tired?

4-year old: Because you have a baby in your tummy!

Mommy: Right.

4-year old: My Daddy takes naps too.

Mommy: Really? Why does Daddy take naps?

4-year old: Because he’s bery tired.

Mommy: Why is Daddy very tired?

4-year old: Because he’s 32!

This is sooo funny!!!

When I was pregnant and "honey" asked me what I was up to all day (when it looked like all I did was lay around the house), I said I was busy making whatever body part was on the list for that week. "Oh, nothing. Just supplying nutrients for some lungs and fingernails. What'd you do today?."

What a funny little girl! I'm glad you're getting some rest.

Being 32 sounds like a good reason to me to take a nap!
