If you are a mom, you know the obvious benefits of nap time. Not really for yourself, but for your sweet little kiddos.
Carmen is currently sleeping.
I reserve this time to be productive. To get things done around the house, call friends, or cross things off my to-do list. What ends up happening? I spend time on the computer.
Sure, I usually do my freelance work during her naps, but let’s be honest. There’s so many distractions out there that sometimes that just doesn’t happen. I check my email, I research things online, mess with my dad’s website, write lovely blog posts, and BAM I feel connected to the “outside world.” I’ve been a computer person for awhile. I guess from school and work and such, it’s just carried over.
Carmen is so happy when she gets a good nap (or two) in. She wakes up with puffy eyes, a big smile, and usually talking to herself or reading books in her crib. So wonderful.
Anyway, back to me being productive during nap time.

Here’s an image I found that someone “pinned.”
