I posted but it didn't show up, so posting again. It can be very hard during the "2 naps/day" stage. It always seems to be naptime! While it's true what they say about resting when baby rests, adults don't need 5+ hours of rest during the day. First of all, know that you will move from this stage to 1 nap/day, then none - you'll get there! Meanwhile, is there another mom on the same schedule you could chat with sometimes during naps. You could keep each other sane! Also, if you have a portable nanny cam, sit outside or do a little yardwork or gardening - the fresh air and sunshine will do wonders and I remember from experience feeling like I "went somewhere" even if it was just the backyard LOL. Also there are lots of free/almost free online classes you could look into: online marketing, etc. - Hubspot has free courses for certification. Udemy also has certification courses - they run approx. $200 but watch for sales, classes are sometimes $10-15!!! You could occupy your mind an improve your skills and resume at the same time - and at your own pace!
