As Kayleigh gets older, she naps less and less.  The naps that she does take are pretty short.  Sometimes she’ll nap for 10-15 minutes, and other times I’ll get lucky and she’ll sleep for an entire half hour. 

Whenever Kayleigh naps, I’m faced with what I call “The Mommy Dilemma”.  I have a very short period of time to myself, to do whatever I’d like to do, but there are so many choices, that I don’t even know where to begin!  She’s been super fussy and clingy lately due to her teething, so I really need to make the most of the time I get while she naps. 

You Know You're a Mom...

10 Things I Could Do While Kayleigh Naps:

1.  Wash the dishes that have been piled up in the sink for 2 days.

2.  Attempt to put a dent in the backload of dirty laundry that’s overflowing my laundry room.

3.  Finally swap out that full Diaper Genie bag for a new one.

4.  Make myself a cup of coffee and hopefully get at least half-way through it before she wakes up.

5.  Make something to eat??  What can I make that is super quick and easy??

6.  Work on my blog.

7.  Try to beat the next level of Candy Crush.

8.  Take a shower and hope that I have time to shave my legs this time.

9. Fold the 5 loads of clean laundry that’s currently residing in Kayleigh’s pack n’ play. 

10.  Stare at my beautiful daughter while she peacefully sleeps.

What do you do while your kids nap?
