  • its very rare i wake up unhappy. because i usually wake up to someone calling mama mama from a crib which always puts a smile on my face :?)

  • Its ok at first for the years before school starts. The kids are fun and willing to do anything and happy. As the school years arrive its less enjoyable for the parent staying home all day. If you can't find work on top of that, its just alot of finding ways to keep busy that don't invovle cleaning something at home. Its alot of boredom. Thank goodness for computers.

  • I'm right there with ya! I work full time, but I've ALWAYS been the type of person that has to have something to look forward to to be happy - even before I had kids. It doesn't have to be a grand event - just something small like looking forward to hanging out with a friend I haven't seen in a while, etc.

    If you feel like you need something to look forward to and are feeling depressed, try to plan some small things for the nearby future. I don't know what you like to do, but get together with friends, plan a night out with you SO if you have one, etc. :) That'll help to make you feel like you're having fun and that you're getting out of your every day routine of staying home with you toddler.
