First: I don't think I would have survived this long in Parenthood without them.
Second: I find it amazing that all the small creatures who rely on me for their well being nap at roughly the same time. Those long hours just before sunset, when the shadows are starting to pop up, the breezes kick in, and the temperature has (in some cases, finally) started dropping.
Usually this is my only quiet moment all day. I can read, watch a non-G rated movie, Facebook, nap, bake, make an elaborate dinner, sleep, get a lot of chores done really fast, or play XBOX.
Today, I took 5 minutes to blog, and then I'm gonna pee (alone!) and take a nap.
In case you cared.
