well, I said Other but really I guess it might be "nap at the same time"... because holding her the whole. dang. time. is the only way to get a nap longer than 20 mins out of her. Sigh.

Re: When my lo is napping I usually...

I chose other b/c I couldn't choose 2 of them...When the kids lay down, I immediately sit down for about 10-20 minutes of me time at the computer with a couple of cookies. After I've had my little break, then I get as much done as I can around the house before they get up.

Personal hobby (get on the internet, read, catch up on a show I missed). Occasionally I nap but only when we had a rough night or I'm sick.

Re: When my lo is napping I usually...

Always housework first, it is just part of my routine. Then usually homeschool stuff with my older kids and some computer time for me sometimes too depending on what they are working on for schoool. I usually check in on here from my phone randomly during the day during downtimes, I rarely have time to actually get on my real computer or do anything else fun. I have 5 kids ages 7 1/2 and under, including a 6 week old, so naptime means - RUN as fast as you can to get some things done!

Re: When my lo is napping I usually...

I spend it taking care of my other LO. Ha, ha! No break from the kiddos for me. DS naps 2-3 times a day, but my 3-year-old dropped naps over a year ago. So when DS is napping, I'm usually playing with DD so I can keep her interested in a quiet activity. If I didn't spend the time with her, she would probably end up running through the house and waking up her brother.

I am a WOHM so when my LO is napping I am usually at work
But on the weekends or a day off I usually am cleaning, doing laundry, neatening up when she is napping.
