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

Some housework (we don't have a dishwasher, so I typically do the dishes during her long morning nap) and hang out with my 5-year-old. Some days I would sooooo love to take a nap with my beautiful girl, though. Sigh.

Not voting cause I'd have to pick 3 of them. I usually go on the computer then either clean or nap. Depends on how long it takes everyone to fall asleep cause I'll stay up until I hear nothing upstairs.

chores, reading, etc.
depends on the day and how much of a rest I need.

and when I say 'rest', I do not mean nap, because mindless mental rest is more important to me than physical rest.

I've done all of the above, but for the most part I clean...I cant stand napping when I can feel the mess around me!

Eat. Watch TV. Post on computer. Do dishes/laundry/homeschool older son/do stuff with the teens. Shower. The list goes on and it's never nap, even though I always want it to be :/

I can't vote because DD gave up her nap at two and I no longer get "me" time. Ughhh..

Chores and games/computer time. If DH is available too, we normally get super lazy and play computer games. But if he isn't around I am a lot more likely to do only chores.

Workout physically in my home gym. Takes about an hour to 1:15 minutes 3 days a week(MWF). The other 2 days, I mess around on my iPad, watch trash tv(court shows) or take a nap myself.
