we finally got around to hanging our brasilian hammock in our front room last saturday. since then bo and i have managed to take a nap in there together almost every day. we justify it since he's a busy, growing boy who is learning lots of new things and i am ridiculously trying to balance taking care of him, taking care of myself, and trying to take two classes and prepare for two upcoming literature conferences. this week, i have been feeling especially in over my head trying to work on several papers and get reading done on time all during the precious few hours that bo doesn't need to be held or played with or feed or bathed or whatever else we do. and i still manage to waste time taking long naps snuggling in the sun with my boy.
