Sometimes in the middle of the day, after cleaning, I fall into a nap in my room while Em’s in her room. Sometimes, my nap is so heavy that I wake up to find myself tucked in with a throw blanket.
Then sometimes, I can feel the bed move because a little toddler is making her way up to look at my face. I pretend sleep to see what she’s going to do because little does she know that her ninja mom is a light sleeper. She usually kisses me then leaves the bed to go back to her room again.
One time, I went green and recycled my mom’s old tricks and asked Em to find all the gray hair in my head while I take a short nap. She look through my hair and say, “I found one…” then proceed to brush my hair and make me look pretty for her dad.
