I take a break.
I take a nap! when I had one child I would take the time to get things done but now with two boys one of which is a month old, I take a nap when I can. I feel I need it in order to function and not be grumpy later in the day.
It depends on the day. My kids fall asleep on the way home from the sitters every weekday. I left them sleep a little while I make dinner. If it is the weekend... it's family nap time, which includes the cats. My husband and I catch up on much needed shut eye too.
It happens rarely that they take naps anymore. It depends on the night before. If I was up late and exhausted, I will sleep. If not, I will take the opportunity to clean up the house and get some things done without them trying to "help"
I usually take a break for some and get things done for some.
I usually clean and then take a break.
