I been home for over a year from a lil bit before the pregnancy till now my baby is going on three months and im only 19years old but i know my most important job is taking care of my son but i sometimes feel i should be working a really job or going to school and really doing something more like i would have been . IDK sometimes i feel like im not doing much with my life i just wonder how other SAHM deal with this ?Answer Question
The answer I was going to give will now be different based on how young you are.
You might find the change harder than most because of your age, you are not only giving up the life you knew but the life most others have as a teenager. You probably will see this as more of a sacrifice than most sahms because you ARE sacrificing more than the women who are older than you. They had their fun, they had their growing up years, college, dating, etc. This IS a huge sacrifice for you more than most.... but you know in your heart it is for your child..,. keep strong. You are doing right by your baby... keep that forefront in your mind.

You need something that is 100% yours. It never invloves the kids or your SO, if you have one. Sometimes I feel like I have lost all identity. Like there is no me anymore--only the wife and the mama. Maybe you feel the same way I do. That being said, I have hobbies that I enjoy. This might make me sound like I am in the 3rd grade, but I like to pen pal. I like sitting down at the kitchen table at night when the kids have gone to bed and the house is quiet and write a letter to a friend. I have a very good friend from Germany whom I have written to for a good number of years now. http://www.interpals.net is a good site. Also http://www.swap-bot.com is another good one.
