I feel like a horrible mother

I don't know what to do with my son. I constantly run out of ideas. I'm a ftm and a sahm and I seriously don't know what to do all day. I feel like I'm constantly cleaning up messes that never get clean. When I get to frustrated I prop him up and turn on and cartoons or busy rhymes and go outside and smoke going that be falls asleep. It sometimes works. When I get back inside I just hide and clean, but of course by the time dh gets home the place looks exactly the same if not worst.

I try not to chain smoke but it's the only time I get time for myself. I don't even want a cig half the time I some but it gives me a chance to escape.

I seriously don't know what to do anymore

I don't understand your question. How old is your son, why is the house a mess?

You prop him up?  How old is your son?
I don't think any of this is true.

Making cleaning lists help me in this situation.

Maybe you'll feel better if you get a part time job just to get out for awhile. I get kind of lonely and depressed if I am in the house too much. I am also a sahm. Oh and the less time you're in the house, the less messy it gets. LOL

Is he a baby? Babies aren't really all that entertaining I know! They are high matienence mess makers.
I would not clean constantly during the day....I would wipe up and clear dishes. Then, about an hour before your husband comes home, start cleaning. This saves the back and forth during the day and the house is more likely to be straightened up when he comes home.
Could you possibly join a playgroup? You never know you might be friends with someone you meet at the park. Do you have friends you can meet up with for coffee? I spend a lot of time gettong out and running errands.

 look online for activities that you can do with your son at home for his age group. The Google bar can be your best friend!Get him on a schedule and find something other than chain smoking to relieve stress.They are only little once...make it count.
