How do I get my son to understand that even mommy needs a nap sometimes?

this week has been stessfull, we just found out my dad has cancer and my schedule has been full keeping up with my son and helping my hubby. My son is eight and wants my attention 24/7 > I don't usually nap but once in a while we all need one and I just don't get a break.

  • You tell him. 8 year olds are more than old enough to understand.
