do you get any "downtime" when baby is asleep during the day?

if so, what do you do?


what about time in the evening?

what do you do?


do you ever get out of the house without baby/s just by yourself, even if to get some shopping?


for those that are at work away from home, how do you like to spend your "breaks"?


If you could have downtime for 2 hours, what would you do? (and that means NO housework too)

what about 2 hours with your SO?

what about 2 hours with friends?

Since I am back at work, I view work as my "downtime" . I want nothing more than to hold her and play with her as much as I can!

I try to include her in all the chores and let me nap in my arms.

do you get any "downtime" when baby is asleep during the day? Yes, on most days.

if so, what do you do? My workouts in the morning (P90X).

I also clean/laundry during nap times but I don't really count that as my down time.


what about time in the evening? After all kids are in bed I usually catch up on a show or two on the dvr and swap back rubs with dh a few nights a week.

There usually isn't much down time after about 3pm until about 8-9pm.


do you ever get out of the house without baby/s just by yourself, even if to get some shopping? Yes, dh is really good about letting me get out for a couple hours every week or every other week for "me" time. Usually its just mindless shopping at Target. Sometimes its a coffee or dinner/lunch date with friends. It's important for me to have that little time to myself.


If you could have downtime for 2 hours, what would you do? (and that means NO housework too). Hmm spend it at a spa (if I had the extra money!) Massage and pedicure!!

what about 2 hours with your SO? Dinner or just going for a drive. We used to take random drives all the time just talking about life and our future and daydreaming.

what about 2 hours with friends? Dinner/lunch and maybe a cocktail lol!! Although sometimes shopping is fun when I have the money Of course I usually spend it on the kids and not myself!
