My Best Friend

Lotus is getting away from naps.

Allow me to rephrase.

We are trying to get lotus to keep taking naps. Lotus is having none of this and does not want to nap.

What we have started to do is bring her in bed and nap and make her be quiet for a bit. Sometimes that turns into a nap, sometimes that doesn't.

What often happens is that Lotus will kiss me and play with me and I will play with her.

Some of my most wonderful time with my daughter is when she is trying to get out of napping.

Today she looked at me and said, "Mommy, you're my best friend." I hugged her really tight and said a little prayer that in 30 years, she'd still feel the same way.


  1. In 30 years, you will most certainly be her best friend. In 10-15 years? It might not seem like it AT THE TIME. Don't ask me how I know . . .

  2. That's so incredibly sweet! Love this.

  3. That's lovely - I certainly hope she'd keep feeling this way! As for naps, I remember I was completely anti-napping as a child (and still am as an adult).

  4. Oh I can't wait for those snuggly days when they say such sweet things. Just saying hello from ICLW.
