SAHM's sit on their butts all day...

So apparently people think we don't do anything all day? That we don't leave the house? 

ARE there SAHM's that just sit around bored all day? If so WHY?

This is what I do:

I have a 2 year old, an almost 5 year old, and 2 dogs.

I feed the kids, get them dressed, put DS down for naps.

I take DD to pre-k.

I go to the gym.

Take the kids to swim classes or go play at fountains in the Summer.

I take the kids to the Park, to the Library story time, on long walks, bike rides, etc.

I run errands and go shopping.

I have play dates with friends kids.

I meet friends/family for coffee.

I clean the house.

I take care of the dogs.

I do projects/crafts/etc, even my own hobbies.


I leave the house almost every day unless I'm really tired and the weather is terrible, but if I don't get out I'd go nuts! I'm not bored and I don't just sit around all day, do you!?

You COULD sit on your butt all day but WHY would you?

I'm busy from eyes open (which is usually before the sun rolls up) until I go to bed. There are certain things I can't do when they're awake because its easier without their 'help'-- like fold laundry, vacuum, clean the bathroom, etc., so I do those after kids are in bed.

I'm not asking you to lol... I'm just saying I doubt there are many SAHM's that just sit around all day!

This is the same old post and same old argument over and over. Boring.

I did a lot the first year after ds2 was born. I was pretty depressed.

I didn't have a car during the day for quite some time.  It was horrible.

I was a SAHM for years. There were mnay days that I did sit on my butt all day.

Most days I didn't do much, took the kids to the park, play dates, had lunch dates with friends. 

So even those days while I wasn't sitting on my butt at home...I was doing it elsewhere.

I prefer doughnuts... I find the time here and there.
