I see 2 problems here. First is the habit you need to build of checking your lists regularly. I always work from my lists unless it's work as it shows up, but whenever I am not sure what to do next I pull out my iPhone and take a look at my Omnifocus lists. The habit is to make a point of checking your lists at the end of every task. I also check my lists at natural breaks, like when I go to the bathroom, lunch etc.Try putting reminders in your phone to alert you to check your lists, several times day until the habit becomes ingrained.

I see absolutely no reason why "Toddler Asleep" wouldn't be a perfectly valid context to have for you. So my main suggestion is to try out a bunch of other creative contexts and get a set that works for you. Feel free to add, use and then get rid of as many contexts as you eel are important. Particularly with Omnifocus it's really easy to change or modify add or delete contexts on a whim. I will on occasion make a context that I only use actively for a day or 2 so feel fee to experiment.
