Nap Time For All

Do you nap?  Do your kids nap?  Do you think your kids are too old to nap?

Refreshment during the middle of the day is good for everyone – not just the babies in your home.  Since my diagnosis with Lupus a year ago, I have taken this to heart.  I tend to push myself to keep going, but in the end it seems like it always backfires on me.  I end of barely making it to bedtime and honestly, my attitude and patience level decreases greatly.

So on the advice of my dear hubby, I began taking a small break in the afternoon.  He has always been a big napper and I honestly thought it was rather lame!  I mean, we had stuff to do, places to go, kids to manage!  I didn’t have time to nap – or did I?

When I finally allowed my body to take a break in the afternoon when my toddler took his nap, I saw that I managed to actually get more done and in a better way.  So as a mom, I declare – NAPS for all!

As summer is approaching and older kids will be home for the entire day, I think it is important to incorporate this nice ‘break’ into your day.  It is good for everyone. [Read more…]

As I approach the 2 year anniversary of The Confident Mom, I am reflecting on my goals for this journey I feel God has mapped out for me.  I am contemplating recent changes in my personal life that certainly could not and were not seen over two years ago.  Let me just say, I have had a lot to contemplate!

I am reminded today, that I do not need to know all the answers – but rather let The Lord guide me and touch my heart as He only can.  This verse came up today on my perpetual calendar:

If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask Him and He will gladly tell you.  James 1:15 TLB [Read more…]

This past week my friend and fellow guest columnist here on The Confident Mom, Dana Bailey posted on facebook that she wanted to go to “mom camp”.  Wouldn’t that be great?

No whiny kids, no laundry, no preparing meals or cleaning toilets – it is all done for you.

A week of fun activities planned for you to do and all you need to do it show up.  You don’t have to do any planning, any logistical thinking or negotiating, just decide what YOU want to do.  AHHHHH, sounds wonderful.

Here is what would be included in my week of ‘mom camp’, I mean I can dream can’t I? [Read more…]
