Good luck and remember that if something is not working for you, change it.

I enjoy my family very much . I must say working helps me enjoy my time away from the kids. I don't think it is a right or wrong answer. Just do what is best for you and your family. It does not help a child to see mommy not happy.

I have a 3.5 year old, 1.5 year old and am 10 weeks pregnant. I feel pretty busy most days. I get up and make breakfast for the entire family and see my husband off to work. I clean up and then shower and get the kids ready. It's usually 9AM by then. I usually have some activity we do before lunch, such as a playdate, music class, etc. We have lunch around 11AM and then play and clean-up until nap time at noon. My son naps, I take a short 45 min nap

It is interesting that you title your post What do SAH moms do all day. What do you think daycare providers do all day? They take care of your children. It's a full-time job.


while i agree with you being a sah parent is a full time job, I would not compare my sah to a daycare providers position.

While I agree that a SAHM is not the same job as a daycare provider, I still think it's a rather silly question when people ask a SAHM "What do you do all day?"
