I always wonder how other SAHMs cope with being home all day. I am fortunate enough to know of a handful of SAHs so sometimes I can go visit them (although my kids are the youngest of everyones and they all do homeschooling so that's a challenge). Also we are members of a church. So I get out of the house 2x's a week at the very least, plus I have a larger group of women to associate with. But I know some women don't have that outlet.
However, even amongst all of that I feel lonely being home with kids that don't think logically and one can't talk yet. I get tired of having a groundhog's day. And some days I feel just flat-faced with ideas to keep us going. My sons are just turned 3 and just turned 1! There aren't a good amount we can all do together because one is tearing up the others project or distracting him from learning things. Summer will be nice since we can get outside more but right now I'm just bored. Then another thread was talking about the do nothing day', something I would hope for at least once a week but if I attempt it, I just feel like it's the same as the other days.
Do you run out of ideas?
Do you get tired of going somewhere just to use up time (not because you actually want to go)?
Do you feel like you are doing it all and not enjoying it at all?
Do you ever feel bad because you think your children are even more bored than you?
How do you keep that loving mother attitude?
