Besides taking care of your child, how do you occupy yourself?

Sometimes I feel useless sitting home doing house choires, so I'm thinking what can I get myself into?

  • I work part time, but I used to stay home when my son's were little and i remember being really bored- I found some classes through the city -where you could take your baby and meet other mothers-
    or Scrapbooking is pretty fun-

  • When I was a SAHM I had a big vegetable garden that I worked myself, planting, weeding, harvesting, canning and freezing the vegetables. I also had a small orchard and put up our own fruits. I made our bread from scratch, and I studied nutrition and recipes to provide safe and healthy food for my family. I did needlework, and I made and sold handcrafts- pinecone wreaths and baskets. When the children were in school I also volutnteered at the school, with scouts, and at church.

  • Bmat.. wow, I wish I was more like you. When I have any spare time, I look up new recipe, and try it out for dinner. Since I am a first time parent, I do a lot of photoshop for my scrapbook of my daughter.
