Minecraft Crash: Creeper Edition

The kids…they are crazy for Minecraft! Apparently, after wandering the countryside, touchily exploding on folks, these Creeper things need a break, too. It’s not easy being green.

Exploding is Exhausting

My youngest appears to have tucked his Creeper in for a little nap, using his baby blanket. I mean, Creepers are probably misunderstood. Who knows why they explode like they do? They probably have some serious baggage to relate, if you would just give them a chance to explain themselves.

Maybe this one will reveal his motivations after he has a little snooze. Better mood and all.


Naps Happen in Uniform

Happy Veterans Day to my dad, who served the Air Force faithfully for 26 years. As you can see, he did every job well, and it was pretty tiring…

Our heartfelt thanks to all the men and women who serve. You deserve a break.

That’s me! The little one…about 1973…and one really tired serviceman.

Guest Nappers #203 and 204: Positraction

Don’t you hate it how your kids never behave for you, and then they’re just perfect angels for NANA?

Because we all know children are sweetest when they’re asleep. Jeannette from Mommy Needs a Martini sent me this infuriating photo of her children, who seem to have walked through their Nana’s door and instantly and compliantly started to nap.

Because...it's that easy!

Because…it’s that easy!

Paying homage to My Cousin Vinny, I’d say “The two yutes, OH EXCUSE ME…the TWO YOUTHS” are guilty only of being present at the scene of this napping crime.

It’s all about the positraction, right? In this case, one wheel stayed on the ground and the other rode up on the couch. Still, they nap in perfect synchronicity.

And Nana  thinks they’re easy to get to sleep. Wouldn’t you know? You’ll never hear the end of it.


Guest Napper #202: Reading Room

Tomorrow my kids start school for the year, and I guess maybe I’m feeling a little soft or sentimental. I was looking through my backlog of naps I promised to post for people, and I came across this vintage nap from the early nineties.

Gosh, I was in college when this was taken. I suspect, however, I was in a very similar position on a desk in my dorm.

Naps Happen

The media can be so exhausting.

I love the sweet simplicity of this snooze. Courtney, who is pictured here, is now 25 years old, but her mom fondly remembers her many impromptu naps, taken wherever she felt the need to crash.

As we go into another year jam-packed with activities and tutoring and sports and total craziness, let’s all remember to let these little people have their moments of peace and quiet.

Aren’t they truly divine?
