What do you stay at home moms do for yourself or for fun?

I love taking care of my family. Sometimes I feel like just taking sometime for myself but I'd feel selfish.I don't want because I don't want my DH to think I tired of them.

  • I get on facebook, farmville & cafemom. Sometimes I pick up a good book & will read that like I may read 4 or a few more books a year. I love to watch movies & keep up on a few shows of mine. I like to do craft type stuff. I LOVE to sleep!

  • I do alot of things for myself and dont find it selfish at all. When I was in my 20s I did, but now not so much. I go to the movies alone or with friends, out to lunch, shopping, tanning, take day trips to the outlet mall and things like that. I figure if everything I need to do at home is done, my kids are cared for, and all of that then I deserve me time.

  • DH is deployed, so we talk on Skype, I get on Cafemom try to find new, fun groups to join and make new friends, bake, read. When DH is home we like to go out on the weekends, when a friend watches DD, and we go to the Country Club in town, go dancing and drinking, have a date night.

    I never feel like taking time out for myself, DH and DD are my life.

  • Don't get me wrong now. I love my dh and my dd and I take such good care of them and our home. I just feel that's all I do.

  • Until my kids were in school, we had fun at home and We were never bored. We didn't do anything special-we just hung around the house or visited other Moms and kids. Or we went shopping or out for a walk. WHen they were old enough to go to school, then I went to the Library,etc. and did a lot of sewing for myself and my daughters. I miss those days....

  • I feel the same exact way you do. I don't like to go out and drink cuz it's no fun having too much fun and taking care of kids the next day. I don't do anything at all really. Bored with my life.

  • I do lots of stuff for myself and it's not selfish. My husband does stuff for himself. Gawd knows the kids do stuff for themselves. Just because I'm a mother doesn't mean I stopped being a person with wants and needs.
    I like to read and write, knit, watch TV, play games.
