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

I voted for "Pursue a personal interest" but I guess I should have voted "Other," because really I do a combination of things. I typically watch something while I exercise (bike), shower, and try to get some housework done. But sometimes, honestly, I sit on the couch and just BE, enjoying the silence, without anyone needing anything from me!

I voted other because it depends on the day. Sometimes I nap with him, sometimes I do chores, sometimes I knit, sometimes I sew, and sometimes I just sit and do absolutly nothing!! I don't work though since I am a WOHM and there is no way I'm bringing work home

They nap at the same time? I voted other, because this is so rare that I would say all of the above.

Any typos are probably a combination of my phone and poor proofreading!

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

I'm in school, so naptime (and weekends) is pretty much the only time I have to do my school work. Boring... I'll be taking a break from school until next fall probably since I'm due with #2 in the spring. When I'm not in school, I usually relax for a little bit, then do housework. I'll nap sometimes, too

chores usually, with some computer thrown in. Also, my middle one doesn't nap anymore, so nap time is our time to play "big kid" games that aren't allowed out while the babies are awake.
