  • Read, Cafemom, Facebook. I also trade babysitting with a friend of mine; I'll go get my hair done or just shop.

  • I love baking so I do that a lot, I go to my DD's house every day for a couple of hours to look after her baby so she can get some time to herself, I go shopping, beauty salons, the gym..

  • Honestly I dont really get alot of free time until they are asleep at night, which is when I get most of my laundry and cleaning done. Right now I am sitting here at the table with my laptop while they eat their lunch.. So I guess you can consider this some of my free time lol

  • What free time? I have 4 kids, I am constantly doing something, whether it's cooking, cleaning, schlepping kids to/from school, grocery shopping, laundry, dishes, etc etc etc. My only "free time" is the few minutes here & there that I sit to rest and check e-mails, facebook, cafemom, or when I'm sleeping, or when I make it a point to get out of the house (which is usually grocery shopping, or shopping for other stuff for kids, or family get-togethers). The only time I get to read is when I'm in the bathroom, and that's barely 5 minutes at a time any more.

  • I get online all throughout the day (whenever I have a minute). When I have bigger blocks of time (after the house is cleaned up) I knit or write usually. I have 5 kids but I've taught them to be independent from the start so they don't need me 24/7. Sometimes I'm bored out of my mind because the house is clean and there's nothing else to do. My kids are 10, 9, 8, 4 and 5 months.
