In Loving Memory
November 28, 2010 – July 29, 2015
It is with great sadness we mourn the loss of Tate’s nap time. It was a cherished part of each and every day in the Barry household for over 4 years and will be a tremendous loss to all. And by all I mean with the exception of Tate who is relishing his new found freedom.
This nap provided Tate’s mom with some much needed time in the afternoons to regroup and typically to haphazardly plan what the eff she was going to feed the maniacs for dinner. Or sometimes to catch up on a Gossip Girl episode here and there without having to pause when an inquiring young mind would enter the room. It was also an imperative factor in keeping “the grouch” (aka, a nap-less Tate) at bay, even though most who know him find it hard to believe that he is ever anything less than sweet and kind.
Although this nap will be missed and could never be replaced, we do still have Casey’s afternoon nap to lessen the pain. At least for the moment since Casey’s nap is hit or miss and this child seems to live off adrenaline, chaos and giving mom gray hair.
In lieu of flowers, please send any activity ideas for the remaining days of summer break or possibly tequila.
