    HI Melissa! found your blog through scarymommy.com. My husband and I used to have the nap fight all the time! He works part time and goes to school full time while I stay at home with our (almost)2 yr old son. He would come home, say hi, maybe have a snack, and then lay down for 20 minutes to an hour. occasionally longer. and then he’d have to study the rest of the day. And I’m alone with the kiddo. again. Every. Single. Day. For a while, i resented him for it, but I kept telling myself, ‘hes working his a$$ off so that we can stay home, keep your mouth shut’ … and then “but why does he get all day with no baby and then still needs a break?! wth? I can’t wait til..blah blah blah.” It took some time, but I finally got to a point where told myself “Look, it’s not going to be like this forever, but it’s not going to change any time soon, so stop fighting it. He obviously needs the rest. Remember just how horribly stressful and exhausting college was WITHOUT a spouse and child to worry about and support, and give him a break. It’ll be better in a few years. Stop wishing your life away,and just take it one day at a time. You’ll be there before you know it. “
