Do YOU take naps?

I wish I could take a nap everyday but being the silly woman that I am, I wait until it's DD's naptime before I start cleaning up lol (biggest procrastinator in the world) and by the time I'm done DH is getting home, then well it's time to wake up DD lol.....

But sometimes I get my sh*t together and handle everything before I sit down to veg on CM and I'm able to take a nap when she does (ahhh the bliss)

So do YOU take naps? And when do you take them?

  • I wish I could!! I've always been bad at taking naps, and rarely take them unless I'm sick or have a really bad migraine. When my son is napping, I either clean, meditate, read, watch tv, or mess around on CM or FB (usually a little of a few of those). My husband is one who can fall asleep within minutes, and I had an old college roommate who was awesome at taking power naps. I'm so jealous of them! LOL On the rare occasion that I do nap, I feel groggy and more tired. Needless to say, I was very sleep deprived for the first 6 months or so after my son was born, while my friends who are good nappers had an easier time in that regard. I do try to have some 'down' time or quiet time for myself each day though, and that helps--though sleep would be great.

  • Right now yes. But I'm almost 37 weeks pregnant and not sleeping well at night. DH watches her while I nap.

  • Yes. I take them when I get my 2 yo and 8 month olds down for their naps - generally they are asleep between at least 1 and 3, so I clean for 30-45 minutes and then lay down until my 2 yo wakes up or my 13 yo gets home from school at 3:20.

  • Almost everyday for the last 3 years. It is very rare for me to not take a nap.
