Re: What do moms with only one kid do all day?

We go everywhere! Cecilia is such an awesome age-- 4 months-- and we go do all sorts of stuff, mama and baby classes, playgroups, errands, shopping...and when she naps, I work on my side business, which is crocheting baby hair accessories!

Re: What do moms with only one kid do all day?

I don't know. I have never taken care of just one kid. To be honest, all the moms I know IRL that are SAHMs with one kid are incredibly bored at home. Thing is, most of them are overwhelmed with just their one kid and so they don't go anywhere or try anything new. They sort of get in this "mommy and me bubble" and eventually emerge when the second is born or out of desperate loneliness. Sorry if all that is too harsh. If I only had one kid to take care of, sheessh, I would be in heaven and plan a million things to do and places to go. I squezze in as much as I can now with two kids and daycare kids.

If I only had 2 or 3 I would be similar.

Re: What do moms with only one kid do all day?

I'm going to be in the same boat mama! My older 2 will be in school, and home with dd2 who is 2. I will have a chunk in the morning though, she doesn't nap until noon. BUT I'm going to try and stay home so I don't spend any money!! So that will be my challenge! I'm going to try all the cleaning suggestions! I'm always behind with all 3 home. They are not so independent and they require a lot of direction from me. I'm going to breath. Maybe read. Plan what's for dinner before 5. Find the bottom of my closet, ect. Have fun in the quiet!!
