  • Jigsaw puzzles. I love working on them, but my 3-year-old tries to help and then takes the pieces.

  • I really stopped all my hobbies. I used to be very creative and loved making crafts. I've stopped that completely. I also stopped any form of exercise. I just don't have any time. I work full time. If I find myself with a few extra minutes, I just want to sit down!

  • I just changed WHEN I did my hobbies when my children were young. Nothing that had sharp implements while they were awake. But now that they are older it is more finding the time to do what I love to do because their schedules start taking over.
