i rarely take naps. i should, but i just can't. when i wake up in the middle of the day, i feel disoriented and weird, so i just avoid them. plus, i never feel well-rested or satisfied and it just makes it harder for me to get out of bed again and go on with my day. i would love to tell you that when jude goes down for a nap, i punch out a few loads of laundry, mop the kitchen floor, vacuum out the car, or buff the dinner plates, but i don't. sure, i'll usually tidy up the house when he's sleeping, and get dinner prepped and ready, but i mostly just catch up on my blog reading or pinterest, and then sit outside on the deck and read a book. it's the only time of day when i feel like i can relax for a little bit and do what i want to do.
so...how do you spend your little one's nap time? i'd love to know!
