16 Things Moms *Actually* Do When Their Baby Is Asleep
When the baby is asleep, some moms may attempt to (gasp!) leave the house!
This excellent use of sleeping baby time requires a bit of pre-planning. Because you can’t just leave the baby home alone, right? Of course not! So line up a grandma or a sister or a sitter or your partner to man the fort, feed the baby, get the baby to sleep, and GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. Alone. Completely and totally alone. No kids, no worries, no obligations. Go get a cup of fancy coffee! Get your nails or hair done! Enjoy a nice quiet lunch at your favorite cafe! Or aimlessly wander the aisles of Target with some Starbucks and popcorn. As much as you love your baby, you need to spend a little time by yourself. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?
