It's natural to feel that way, and probably means you need a break of some sort. I considered daycare or preschool for my son (he's two), but we really can't afford any in this area with one income and the days aren't very long so I'm not sure if I could find a job that would work with that schedule. There are a few mom's day out programs that run a couple days a week too, but I'm not sure if I want him to attend those for personal reasons and there are usually waiting lists anyway.
What I decided to do instead was join a local MOMS Club, and we joined our local rec center--for approximately the cost of a month of daycare I can go work out and let him play in their sitting service area for up to 2 hours a day with this annual membership. Just getting out to story times, the park, etc. can help break up the day too. We've been getting a little stir crazy with the winter weather, but hopefully it will be better in the spring.
