    But god I'm bored!!!

    I'm used to having a baby that doesn't nap longer than half an hour at a time. But after finally introducing a nap time routine he's napping brilliantly and is on his second long nap of the day!

    I've gotten so used to having hardly any time to myself, to doing the bare minimum of housework etc while trying to entertain him and to taking him out for walks and in the car to try to get him to sleep! Today I've already done everything I would normally get done in a day and I'm sat here thinking 'now what?!'

    Anyone recommend any good telly I can watch on demand?! Lol!

    Lucky you! Make the most of it lol.. My LO still has one long nap (usually about 2.5hrs 10-12:30), where I manage to get most things done. But I still find myself rushing round for the rest of the day doing little bits here and there. I never have the time to be bored! :( haha xxx

    Try having 2!! Especially when they nap at different times! lol
    Our house is also on 4 levels which means i'm usually running around like a loony so I don't leave the boys on their own for too long!

    James still has a few long naps, his main one in the afternoon so if we're home I get at least an hour [sometimes two] to myself!

    I normally end up cleaning though, or prepping dinner or doing something not relaxing or fun :shock:

    OMG! Make the most of it while you can!!! My LO is now very resistant to napping of any kind during the day and I am so relieved when she has a half hour nap after lunch as I get a bit of a rest! Otherwise we're both up at 6.30am and she goes to bed at 6pm, no real breaks for anything in between. Just trying to wash up the dishes this morning was really difficult as she's so active now I had to put her in her playpen and she just screamed her head off!!

    The house is a mess! Mainly because now I'm pregnant again I'm absolutely exhausted by the evening and only manage to do a couple of bits and pieces round the house.

    He's four months. Usually I am running around like a loon and never have chance to get anything done! I generally just turn a blind eye to everything else other than LO's bottles and the dishes. I did think about hoovering the bedroom, but thought sod it and had a lay down in bed!

    Normal service has now resumed as I'm running round trying to get LO, OH and I fed before LO's bed time at 7.30!

    Well I'm thinking as it's only temporary, I'll dig out my 30 day shred dvd and get back into my pre-pregnancy jeans!

    Although I have to say I actually miss all my play time with my son. He takes almost an hour to drink his milk, he's laughing and chatting so much. Then he's only really awake about another half an hour before getting tired! Mummy might be mean and only let him sleep an hour at a time tomorrow so she can have more cuddles!
