This or that? What to do while they're sleeping!












I never thought that the hardest but most excited question that I would one day have to present to myself with would be: What do I do now that my baby is sleep? Honestly, the answer seems as if it should be the easiest answer to find but in all mommy reality (well for me) it's the most flustering question to answer. Now of course there are a variety of things that I certainly would like to accomplish and finish while my little Camden is awoke but as soon as he's sleep it's like a fight to the death amongst all the possible answers or should I say activities I have permission to openly participate in (now that he's sleep). Things like writing a story, a poem or a song, sitting back to enjoy a favorite movie or tv show in peace and quiet and with all my attention, designing or making jewelry, sketching, working on some new dance moves, doing research on google(haha) catching up with an old friend or relative without me or Cam constantly going back in forth interrupting my telephone conversation, conversing or having chill time with my hubby without being screamed and yelled at, recording music, taking a nap, getting up to get food without being yelled and screamed at or simply just watching my fast growing little baby sleep so peacefully. While baby is sleep I usually and very automatically go for one of these pastimes (which is all so very false) but the things that I yearn to do the most while he's woke I often fulfill while he is woke I just don't really get to put all my focus on it like I would want to, but I try to manage my time wisely and still attend to his adventures in growing and knowing mommy. So, when he's sleep most of the time I just lay him right on my chest and watch him until I feel comfortable enough to let him get away from me and into his crib. When it's all said and done this answer and activity beats all the rest because he wont be this small, this precious and this dependent forever, so I'll embrace it now.
