not bashing anyone i actually applaud you ladies. i recently become a stay at home mom and i am dying. i get soo bored and frustrated. i am not used to doing nothing ( not saying you ladies dont). i clean, cook, do laundry, senf my kindergartner to school and by 9 am i am done. all i do is wait for hubby to come home for lunch. then around 4 pm daughter comes home she naps. baby naps during the day i start cooking at 530pm, hubby gets here at 630 we eat we talk at 8 its off to bed then it all starta again. i am so done with it i wish i was working again but babysitting ia a huge issue as we dont make enough to pay for one and if i started working daycare would take it all so no point. i really dont know how you ladies do it because i am losing it.

I'm sorry. Try to get out and do things. I have been a SAHM for 8 months now. I always tell my husband that I don't always like it, but I'm always grateful to have the opportunity to be here and focus on my kids 24/7. When I was working, even 1 kid getting sick could be a huge hassle.

When you are used to working full time, staying at hme is miserable.  I was out of work for four months last year and though I would hang myself.  Too much time on my hands was not good once I got everything I wanted to done.  lol  I remember just thinking "I need to get on somebody's payroll.  lol

I was a working divorcd mom of one for years, and this has been busier than that was. I think it is because our younger kids are close in age,9,8, and 6. I also refuse for our home to be a one car home. The kids and I are always on the go. We have our garden, our 2 dogs, 2 cats, bunny, and fish. I work from home and homeschool. You'll have to find your thing that works for you.

I used a large portion of my time working on my masters. I also like to write, garden, crochet and take naps lol.
I love to do morning errands, its my favorite part of the day to get out of the house and get stuff done. I also like going to lunch with friends or seeing my dad. I'm never bored, not even now that I'm done with school.

Yeah I don't see how SAHM sdo it either. I would get cabin fever like crazy. My DS is 12 so at this point, it would be no use in me becoming a SAHM. He has pretty full schedule with Science Club and football and basketball. BUT if my future husband gives me the option, I may take it just so that I can start up my business.

You have access to the net so you can work from home. Where there is a will there is a way.
