How do you occupy your little ones when they give up napping and you still need to work?
With my oldest I employed the movie each day at quiet time. I preferred that she watch a long film, but she wanted shorter films. I would work in the next room where she watched the movie. I got very little work done as I was constantly going in to help her switch movies.
Quiet time in the room without the TV was more successful. Although I could never predict what type of "quiet time" I would have to deal with in the months after my kids stopped napping. Some days they fell asleep, some days they were wild, and other days they played quietly in their rooms."
What is your strategy for a day when you have work but the kid isn't napping?
