motherhood,  reality check

Ode to Naptime

Scorned in childhood,
Oft-maligned and put aside
Feigned in college, aided by drink
Or study sessions past the midnight hour

Now in motherhood,
Finally returning to my senses
And watching the clock
Tick
Tock
Down
Till
Noon

And if he sleeps,
Then all is well
And sometimes
I’ll sleep
Too
