The morning nap, I either nap myself (like another said I have a hard time getting to sleep at night), shower, or just relax/ internet time. Afternoon nap, clean the bathrooms, kitchen, bake something yummy, and/or relax/ tv time.

I used to do my house hold chores, dishes, pick up everyones stuff, fold laundry, cook dinner or start dinner, and then get on FB/COM. Now that I have my sister and boyfriend around to help out, my sister and I do the chores while my daughter is awake and I take a shower and take a break while she's sleeping. She takes a 2 hr nap during the day so I have plenty of time to relax and dinner can be made at the normal time and not at noon to be reheated =] Once I start school it's no more relaxing for me except on the weekend...I need to take advantage of all my free time while I can before it gets filled up with studying!

I have 3 boys so they all wake up about 5:45 am get ready for school and when I get home baby goes down for his first nap around 9am I get all the clothes washed, I shower, and pick up kids from school(dad stays home while i run to pick up). His second nap around 3 is normaly my chance to just mess around on the comp. Older kids are playing in there room baby is naping so i get a few min to my self. lol

It depends on how I'm feeling that particular day. Right now my 15 month old son is taking his nap, and I'm fighting the urge to take a nap, too! Sometimes I sleep when he sleeps & other days I either take a shower/get ready, eat, or play on COMs/facebook like today. :)

if im really tired i will sleep, but most days i try to do something pampering during her first nap (face mask, hair mask, paint my nails.. ANYTHING) and then i usually just browse the internet. i try to do the least amount possible lol.

Well, i used to be able to get everything done- washing, tidying, clearing up etc - but now that she is 19months she only sleeps for about an hour, so i normally put some washing on, tidy her toys in the living room then have the rest of the time to myself with the tv or whatever - just to keep me sane!!! lol

i shower. if they're out long enough i have time to put on make up or do something w / my hair. but usually they're only asleep long enough to shower and get online for a few mins. they like to help me out w/ cleaning up when they wake up so i also use this time as my "break" :)

I'll usually clean! I clean all day and am very anal about the way my house looks so I'm finding myself not really taking any mommy time and just cleaning! If I'm feeling sick or am tired I'll try to nap, but I do inhome daycare and I usually wait for my fiance to bring the girls from preschool home about an hour into nap time...soo I really wouldn't have too long to do much anyhow!!!

I either run around the house like mad trying to get some housework done or sometimes I'll get dressed for a
the day put on some makeup or sometimes I might sit down and watch some telly! But rarely ever sleep! Lol

Depends on which nap and how much sleep I got during the night. He sleeps 10-12hrs a night, but I can never fall asleep until 3am and only get about 3 sometimes 4 hrs of sleep then. I will nap with him or cook dinner if it is close to dinner time. I also do housework or just take it as me time. It really depends on how the day is going.

It depends on how tired I am...since I'm preg I might sleep, but usually I do some kind of house-work or work on a craft. Latley for his afternoon naps I go help my husband with the ranch/birds since it's usually to cold to take our son outside with us. Also since it's Christmas I worked on wrapping and cards a few times...baking too. :-)

Make lunch, do any dinner prep if not using slow cooker (ie; chop veg, cut up meat/trim of fat, wash potatoes, measure out rice, etc), catch up on a show online (every friday night it's on Syfy and it shows up on you tube the next day but obv weekend is family time so monday I watch!)

When its a day I worked (I work 3am-9am then stay home with him during the day while daddy goes to work) I sleep. Occasionally I take the time to clean things I dont normally get to clean or take a shower, but most of the time I sleep. On my days off I use it to play on the computer or do something for me, or sleep.
