Ten things to do while your newborn naps:

Because you know the second you lay down to sleep, that little fart face is going to wake up.  But as long as you keep your exhausted body moving, he will sleep for HOURS.

1. Write a blog post.  OBVIOUS.

2. Catch up on blogs you used to read - you know, before you got pregnant and stopped doing all those things you used to like doing.


3. Take some pictures of the sleeping fart face. ( But DO NOT TOUCH HIM OR MAKE A SOUND.  Unless you want him to wake up, in which case go lay down for a nap and he'll be up in 10.)

4. Bathe.  hahahahaha just kidding.  5 minutes into your shower guess who will be calling your name!  By the way, intimate moments with your spouse are also a trigger for baby to wake up- not that that would be a problem, since you probably haven't bathed.

5. Eat something while it is still hot!

6. Browse Amazon for things you think you need but know you can't afford.
you know, for all the stud earrings I have scattered around my house.
7. Mindlessly watch netflix.  Find shows you never thought you'd watch in a million years (and realize you actually like them).

8.  Hate on Gwenyth Paltrow.

9. Exercise. (HA! I laugh, not because the baby will wake up when you are exercising- he won't! But because.... well, who does that!?) 

10. Check on your baby every five minutes to make sure he's still breathing. 

Finally, check the clock, realize he's been asleep for 3 hours and wonder WHY DIDN'T I TAKE A NAP???

bahahahah...Every mom know EXACTLY what you are talking about! Thanks for the LOL. The calories I burned off from laughing are going to count as my exercise for the.....month!

Love your posts! It's only been a few years without a baby and I genuinely forgot all that. I mean, so literally, forgot. I swear, it must get wiped from our memories like the pre-existence! It all sounds familiar and makes sense, but I can't recall a specific moment of this stuff happening. But I can say with a religious-type surety, that I KNOW it did. I guess that's why having another still sounds like a good idea...sometimes!
