I say I'll use the baby's naptime to write. I need that naptime to shower though, too--oh, and clean up the dishes. Now that he's mobile, naptime is a really good time to load the washer and fold clothes, or eat a peaceful lunch, or try to read something.
We have all taken turns being sick lately so I'm behind on everything--except cleaning the bathrooms. Nothing like physically ill children to inspire me to follow behind and truly scrub those bathrooms. When I look back at the week, it seems I can get more done than I thought! (Although the clean laundry is not only spilling out of the basket, it has surrounded and conquered it.)
It all works out in the end. If the kids can't keep up with helping out, they'll just have to hunt for their socks in the Tower of Laundry. They won't find the Holy Grail but hopefully, they can find some socks without holes.
