Some families may nap casually, but in my family, we took our napping seriously! If there were a sport called “napping” our family would definitely have been a championship team.
The beauty of napping as a sport is that it requires no equipment (well, maybe a blanket) and can be practiced anywhere …
out in the open:
(btw, I think someone should be checking to see what the little kid in the background is putting in her mouth when no one is looking!)
or under cover:
A chip off the ol’ block 20 years later, I was “reading the paper” after work. Hubby told me to “wake up!” before he took the picture. Obviously, his family didn’t adher to the same “rules” for taking pictures of competitive nappers as ours did. My family favored capturing shots when we were actually practicing our craft, i.e., napping!
While everyone in my family has participated in the family’s favorite “sport” at one time or another, there is, without a doubt, one all-time champion, Daddy!
Daddy could always sleep anywhere. Confirmed by the fact that the pastor of our church told Daddy one time that if he didn’t doze a little during the sermon, the pastor worried that something was wrong — either with Daddy or with his sermon!
