An Ode To Naps

Children are idiots, so adamantly against missing even a minute of the day with sleep.

With age comes wisdom, as well as appreciation for the delicious luxury that is a good nap. I would just like to take a minute and send out a warm, cuddly thank you to some of my favorite types of naps.

This is for you with love, dearest nap-time.

(Press play to set the mood, please)

To the ideal-setting naps,

The lazy, rainy Saturday Netflix nap,

The arbitrary-sports-game-in-the-background nap,

The beautiful spring day in the park nap, (with sunscreen on, I hope.)


To the naps I couldn’t have accomplished alone, 

The classic food-coma nap, (best accompanied by family during the holidays.)

The your-pet-is-so-warm-and-cuddly nap,

The I’m-glad-I-invested-in-this-couch-’cause-it’s-really-comfy nap,


To the necessary naps, 

The quick-nap-and-rally-for-a-night-out nap,

The automatic-shut down nap (your body says rest, crazy-town!)

The nap that clears your head,

The glorious arbitrary naps,

The just-kidding fake-out morning nap when your body isn’t ready for the day,

The in-and-out nap where you never completely fall asleep,

The nap you actually feel refreshed after,


And the embarrassing naps,

The you-should-call-it-bedtime nap,

The slept-through-something-and-now-have-to-send-awkward-apology-text nap,

The avoidance nap, (putting off today’s problems until you wake again)

To each and every type of nap,

Here’s to you.

You are pretty darn awesome.

And I should tell you that more often.

Love, M.
