"let's nap outside bro!" ~ Carson8:57:00 AM
Guest Post -by Dad -
Last week Carson and I had a daddy day. I am blessed to get to work from home, and one of the benefits is definitely daddy days. We played all morning, well after dad finally got up and that was right as Carson’s attention span expired on the episode of Mountain Men we were watching. It was a beautiful afternoon and we hunted animals, collected sap from our tree, and mined for gold all within the confines of our backyard and before lunch.
I would have to say that lunch was certainly one of our favorites….macaroni microwavable cups with chopped up ham and Pik Nik Shoestring Potatoes. After completing lunch, we moved on to our Bible study. I love so much to hear Carson theorize about God, and what God’s character is like. We were getting off our couch, out on the patio heading back inside, when Carson stopped me down to issue what is sure to be one of his classic lines - “Let’s nap outside Bro!”
At first I almost had an involuntary parent response to another one of his hair brained schemes….but I stopped myself, because the boy was onto something. It had already been a perfect morning, why not cap it off with a nap outside. The weather that day was nothing short of spectacular. Seventy five degrees with a little breeze, and the bluest sky.
I awoke around 3:20pm, as the kids got out of school, and stormed through our neighborhood. We only got to take about 1 1/2 nap….but it was the best nap I have ever had. Thanks buddy!
