When your LOs are napping, do you take a break or get things done?

    When my kids napped, I would lay down with them for 15-30 mins. Then get up, put a movie on then clean.

    My 1 yr old naps still, and during hos nap I school the boys on subjects they need one on one help with.

    Oh man, yeah, thats rough.
    With mine they weren't falling asleep at night and nap was just a battle and not worth it. So, I decided better for them to go to bed early and relax then rather than having an epic battle at nap time every day, lol. My 3 year old will on rare occasions fall asleep in the car but that's about it.

    Quoting PEEK05:

    Oh man that sucks.  I took away my daughter's nap after she turned 3 on purpose because it was starting to take her 45 minutes to an hour to fall asleep, so then my kids would be sleeping opposite times and I could never go anywhere or run any errands because it would take a span of 4-6 hours for their naps to be over since one would wake up way earlier than the other because he went to bed way earlier.  It was almost a year after my son was born.  She just sleeps 12-13 hours at night so she gets all of her sleep at once.

    Quoting do11face:

    I've never had the privilege of both of them napping.

    They each quit napping at two years old and they are 2 1/2 year apart, so...yeah. : /

    Dd doesn't nap anymore, but really it just depends. Mostly I just ate junk food and watched whatever I wanted on the big TV lol.
