How to use nap in a sentence?

  1. Jodi Mindell:

  2. Tonya Stratton:

    Grama Linda, it's now your time to relax, but first you must learn the definition of that and then learn to sit without rocking, learn to appreciate quiet, no more piles and piles of laundry to fold, groceries to buy, diapers to change, it's your time now to rest, go through your memories, put your feet up or take a nap and try to understand how incredibly worthy you are to do whatever the hell you want.

  3. Courtney Stodden:

  4. Michael Grandner:
