  • YES! Lately especially. You should have the hubby take over so you can have some me time, even if just for a little while. Go to a library or go shopping. Anything just to have some time off for yourself.

  • It happens to everyone! Try going to the library, or out window-shopping for a while, just so you can get your mind out of mommy mode.

  • Yeah I'm SAHM too and sometimes I feel like I need a break....I think mostly because we only have one car and so I'm not even really able to leave the house until hubby gets home..which gets real old real quick....yeah I can go on a walk or whatever but I can't actually go anywhere worth anything the store or the movies or anything...sigh...I think what I really want is my own car lol

  • work has been calling me every single day this week to work extra hours. there is a new format to the schedule so somehow they never end up with enough people. this morning i woke up and just felt completely physically drained. my whole body just felt so tight. i stretched out a bit and feel a little better but they ended up calling again today and i just ignored the call. i'm working today anyway but i really don't have it in me to come in 5 hours early again. i've done it 3 days this week already

  • I think we all feel that way sometimes, whether we're SAHMs or working moms. There aren't enough hours in the day sometimes for Mama to get a break. Maybe talk to your DH about handling bedtime or some other time that you can get a little break for yourself. Good luck!

  • GOD YES! I am finishing school this summer online and not working since I have school and a baby so I am so sick of being in this house and being clung to constantly! My boyfriends mom is here most days but since Terrance is breast fed I am stuck with him. I love him and all but Mommy needs a break!

  • Yes yes yes yes! I love being with my kids a lot but I am in desparate need of a break! Luckily I get a kid free afternoon tomorrow for a movie and shopping. If only those days came a more that once every 3 months!

  • I know that feeling. I started volunteering at the library. Get's me out of the house once a week to do something I enjoy.

  • DH is our SAHP, and yes, he wants a break sometimes too. Find an activity/volunteer outside the house.
