What do you do during your "mommy time"?

When the kids/baby is napping, or with a sitter, what do you do? Today i went shopping while my dad watched my baby. I usually naps when my son naps, so my only chance to do something is when he is with a sitter

  • I get up for work at 1:30am to be in at 4:00am so when my DD takes her nap I take a nap also, If i don't nap I sit down and watch my shows and enjoy the peace and quite.

  • well he's 8 months and just hit the "I don't want to nap" stage so I usually use my mommy time doing chores and getting things done, the computer is on the whole time though... if everything is done I usually play video games, read or watch a movie.

  • I watch my DD while she sleeps sometimes just because I still can't get over how big she's gotten. It's MINDBLOWING! But most times I either clean up the house, jump on CafeMom, or I sit on the couch and stare into space because the silence in the house makes me wonder if my children aren't plotting something having to do with the toilet again. LOL

  • I tidy up the house from whatever mess the kids made between my morning cleaning and lunch. Then if I have time after that I'll play the XBOX360, or put a movie in. I'd take a nap, but I know I would over sleep and I don't want the kids in bed all day.

  • I always plan on taking a nap when ds goes down after lunch (the older ones are at school). All morning I'll look forward to naptime thinking "god the couch looks so cozy right now"... then when he does go down for a nap, it's like someone just poured adrenaline into my bloodstream cuz now I'm like "oh goody what do I wanna do?" so I play the piano.
