The kids are asleep. All three of them. Guaranteed to be out for the next six hours.
The house is clean.
DH is at training.

What do I do?

It's freaking me out, I'm free! Or at least as free as I can be when housebound due to sleeping toddlers.

I'd put a movie on and watch it start to finish, while stuffing my face with food I normally hide from the kids. Then I'd have a nap. Tounge1.gif

I'd read a book, and consume something that you wouldn't normally in front of them (due to setting bad example) eg, eat a whole tub of ice cream, eating Nutella from the jar...that type of thing....

Paint toes and finger nails, watch a show, long shower, go to bed early, read uninterrupted, Pinterest, sew, clean my closet, organise photos, upload photos to make albums, HEAPS!

Soo not getting into that. I have an addictive personality and this sort of occurrence is very, very rare. Think non sleeping toddler and teething baby type rare.

Wine, trashy TV whilst surfing the net. That's what I do...

Movie;  food that I usually hide from them and DH.  Maybe ring a friend for a long chat.

I wouldnt be game enough to have a long shower or bath and start doing my nails.  I could guarantee the buggers would wake up if I did that. biggrin.gif
