PEKOE SHARES NAPPING WISDOM

OKAY SO TODAY I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT NAPS BECAUSE I AM A NAP EXPERT. ALSO I WENT TO THE PARK TODAY AND AM VERY TIRED AND AM GOING TO TAKE ONE SOON.

SOMETIMES I BORROW AUNTIE ARI'S BEAR. SHE DOESN'T MIND.

THERE ARE LOTS OF KINDS OF NAPS. THERE ARE REALLY SHORT ONES THAT PEOPLE CALL CATNAPS BUT THAT’S A THING THAT HAS THE WRONG NAME THAT I CAN’T PRONOUNCE.

THIS KIND OF NAP I DO WHEN I AM TRYING TO BE SNEAKY AND CONVINCE MUMMY I’M A GOOD DOG AFTER I’VE DONE SOMETHING THAT MAKES HER YELL. I USUALLY TAKE THEM LYING VERYVERY FLAT ON THE FLOOR LIKE I’VE GONE SPLAT AND AUNTIE ARI CALLS ME A MARTIAN FLAT DOG WHICH IS APPARENTLY FUNNY.

THERE ARE ALSO ATTENTION NAPS WHICH ARE THE ONES I TAKE WHEN EVERYBODY IS LOOKING AT ME. I USUALLY TAKE ATTENTION NAPS BY LYING VERY STILL UNTIL I AM SLEEPY AND THEN ROLLING AROUND ON MY BACK UNTIL I AM COMFORTABLE. THEN I FALL ASLEEP WITH MY LEGS ALL IN THE AIR AND MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WAKE ME UP LAUGHING WHICH IS MEAN BUT THEN I GET PETTED SO THAT’S ALL RIGHT.

SOMETIMES I ALSO TAKE ATTENTION NAPS WITH MY CHIN ON THE ARM OF THE PEKOE-COUCH SO THAT I CAN OPEN MY EYES AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE AND DEFEND THE HOMESTEAD FROM NINJAS.

MY VERY LONGEST NAPS I TAKE WHILE MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI ARE AT SCHOOL AND WORK AND STUFF. I CURL UP IN A TINY BALL ON THE COUCH AND I SLEEP REALLY REALLY WELL AND THE DAY GOES BY REALLY FAST.

I NEED TO CONSERVE ENERGY FOR THE NAP HOME STRETCH.

SOMETIMES I SLEEP SO GOOD THAT I DON’T HEAR MUMMY OR AUNTIE ARI COME HOME AND I CAN’T GO AND WAG AT THE DOOR LIKE I’M SUPPOSED TO AND AUNTIE ARI SAYS “What if I’d been a burglar?” AND MUMMY SAYS “Good job protecting us from ninjas” WHICH IS SILLY BECAUSE IF THERE WERE NINJAS I AM SURE I WOULD WAKE UP.

THIS NAP IS A MIX OF ATTENTION NAP AND ALSO LONG NAP.

BUT IT’S OKAY BECAUSE THEN WHEN THE PEOPLE COME HOME I’M ALL RESTED AND HAVE LOTS OF ENERGY TO DANCE AND JUMP AND PLAY AND ASK TO PLAY AND SIT NEXT TO MUMMY WHILE SHE’S TRYING TO DO HOMEWORK AND PUT MY CHIN ON HER LAP AND CRY AND GRUMBLE UNTIL SHE TELLS ME TO GO TAKE A NAP EVEN THOUGH I JUST HAD ONE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH THE GLOWY BOX. I MUST BE MORE INTERESTING.

NAPS ARE A GREAT INVENTION BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE COMFY AND YOU GET TO SLEEP, WHICH IS ALWAYS GOOD. MAYBE SOME DAY I CAN TEACH GINNY IF SHE’S EVER NOT A JERK.

    Oh, please, let Ginny grow out of her jerkiness. I would love for her to learn deep napping so she doesn’t wake up when I enter or leave a room. Particularily at 3AM…
