There is so much commotion when your little one is awake. Especially if you have a baby and a toddler under one roof. It’s crazy. Whatever my daughter has, my niece wants and whatever my niece has, my daughter wants! It’s madness! So much chitter chatter and hustle bustle all day!
So, I think by midday you need to shut down and take a breath! It’s so calm & quiet when we put our baby to sleep.
But do we sleep when our baby sleeps? Hell No!
Once your baby sleeps it's the most peaceful and happiest time of the day! Automatically, mentally we are charged again and we start thinking of one million things to do.
But here are the top 25 things we mothers do when our little one sleeps-
Lie down next to our baby and stare at your cell phone. Social media monsters!!
Clean the room quietly
Finish off all your pending household chores
Talk on the phone and catch up with mom
Listen to music
Clean out your cupboard
Draw Paint Colour. Be creative
Sort out the laundry
Plan your schedule
Make the shopping list
Get someone to look after your baby so you can step out of the house for threading ( sort out that monobrow) or grocery shopping.
Read a book
Poop in peace
Put a face pack
Have a cup of tea
Gossip with your family
Take a shower
Clean the fridge
Check your email
Look at your babies pictures and videos and wonder when they are going to wake up! Crazy! But true!
Enjoy all the moments you have to yourself when your little one is sleeping.
PS -My little one doesn’t sleep in the afternoons anymore.
