Productivity when the house is quiet.

My 10 year old son is at his little league with Dad.  10 month old baby girl and 2 1/2 year old sister are both napping.  I just can't find the motivation to do anything productive... dishes, laundry, etc.

How many of you moms get in this situation and just sit there instea of being productive?

Glad I am not the only one.  I am a full time working mom and my husband is a SAHD.  Unfortunately he just doesn't know how to keep up the house along with the kiddos so more often than not, I am taking care of everything during the weekend... But I just don't want to right now. haha.

Nope I'm lazy when they are awake. When the nap I get to clean without someone screaming at me.

Lol I'm faced with this right now. I never get to eat or rest unless they are both sleeping so it's a rare treat.

 I used to use nap time as my quiet time. You need downtime too. Sometimes you need a chance to just shut down and not be responsible for anything. Take the time while you can mama!

I'm so guilty of that. But with as much stress as I go through on some days.... I figure i deserve the break. I usually clean while she's napping or sleeping though.

I do this sometimes, and when they are up thats when i get the urge to clean everything.
But i need the break at times. It fills so good to just take a breather.

That's been me all the way tonight! I did make some cupcakes for my son's little birthday celebration tomorrow, but nothing else. I was going to get some cleaning done, but instead I just sat at my kitchen table on here. So, I finally gave in, put on my pj's, and now I'm still on here while I'm in my bed. HA! Sooooo productive, huh? At least the cupcakes are made. I just have to frost them in the morning. I would have done it tonight, but the frosting had to chill overnight.
