Any other SAHM's have this problem?

Since its winter time and we're stuck in the house more often... My kids get bored and they follow me around whining for snacks constantly!

I KNOW that they eat plenty and this is totally out of boredom.

No, they don't do that; however, they do seem to hatch more diabolical plans in winter.

Yeah I know what you mean. I try to get the kids to drink more water and try to play more with them. The water will get their mind off food and so does playing.

I do child care and I just try to keep them busy. I take them outside from 30 minutes. To a hour a day no matter the weather and get their energy out.

He has lately because I am recovering from surgery and can't drive. So not only am I stuck immobile all day but I can't even be immobile somewhere other than the house. I leave a fruit and vegetable tray on the table for one hour at a time, usually in the morning between breakfast and lunch since he sleeps after lunch anyway. When he wants it he grazes from it. I always have a cup of water ready for him.

I'm not a SAHM but on the weekends my kids do the same thing. I have a large basket with art supplies I pull out and put on the table. Also Netflix is my friend.

Nah. Rule of snacks: it must be fruit, and he can get it himself.

DS is more prone to talking my ear off. He rarely stops talking, even when he's off playing by himself.

No, just because it is winter doesn't mean you just stay home all the time.  Those days we were stuck in doors there was always plenty of things to do.
