If you give a mom a nap,
It's likely that she'll think to pop a load of laundry in the washer real quick before laying down.
On the way to the washer, she'll notice that everyone's sheets changing too, so she'll do that lickedy-split.
After replacing the sheets, she will see that Dad apparently doesn't know how to fold towels and have to re-do them.
Once the towels are folded, Mom will decide she wants a glass of water before laying down for her much-needed nap.
In the kitchen, she will see that they are out of eggs and start a grocery list.
As she's sorting through the pantry to see what else is needed, she will start to clean out the back of the pantry.
An hour later, after she's thrown all the expired goods away, she'll think to haul the trash outside.
On the way, she will switch the clothes from the washer to the dryer.
And when she gets outside to put the trash bag into the bin, the kids will be getting off the bus.
Sorry, Mom, no nap for you today.
