What do I do tomorrow? New SAHM

My husband and I have two sons. They are 8 and 2. After they were born, I went back to work the day I was cleared medically. With my 2 year old, I had an 8 AM appointment and went to work right after with my paperwork stating I could resume duties.

With my 8 year old, it was financially necessary, but with my 2 year old, it was because I loved my job.

Our two year old has some delays, that will require visits to specialists and therapists, and a lot of one on one attention. We decided that I would quit my job to be with him. DH and I make almost identical salaries, but he has more room for advancement and I am better at dealing with all the medical stuff.

Today was my last official day at work. I have signed up for all the end of year volunteer opportunities at my older sons school, ( I've always been involved, but I'm kicking it into hyperdrive lol ) and the 2 year olds appointments are booked a month out. So I have all these days, where I have nothing planned. No reason to leave the house.

I feel anxious.

If it's nice take him to the park, put him in a stroller and go for a walk. Household chores. my son was born almost 3 months early and he had a lot of appointments so I stayed home until he was two. I love to cook so I was able to make homemade meals.

Cook, clean, grocery shop, pay bills, do laundry, clean up toys all day, take your 2 yr old to the park or a play area, do some learning activities, doctors appts, therapy, play with your 2 yr old, spring cleaning, shopping, etc.... There are so many things to keep you busy.

Our society has conditioned us to expect to be busy busy busy. To be constantly stimulated and entertained. I promise, it won't kill you to slow down. It doesn't make you lazy or unambitious.

Haha I was looking at my stove today and thought oh I can't scrub that tomorrow. It needs some love. Then I scrubbed it tonight, because once I noticed it dirty, I couldn't ignore it until tomorrow.

It will be raining tomorrow, maybe I can con my sister into bringing her 3 year old over. She lives an hour away. I don't see them enough

Spend time and enjoy him. Find a play group.
