Do you find that it's mentally harder to be a SAHM during the winter months vs. the summer when it's warm and sunny outside?

I do think it is harder in the winter months just because I tend to get cabin fever and so does my 3 year old.

I definetly think it is harder to be a SAHM in the winter months, especially with all this winter weather we have had here in TN, my 6 year old was out of school for a week a few weeks back.

So was that paid or unpaid leave?

I would agree, if more kids are in the works I wouldn't want DH to change jobs either.

I don't know yet! lol Connor was a newborn last summer, and DH was home for 3months with us. We didn't really go out and "do" things, we spent a lot of time visiting family and just hanging out around the house. So this summer will definitly be different!

I don't mind the winter, fall/winter are my fave seasons! That could change as Connor gets older and if we are cooped up in the house all season long ;)

I've only been home since October, so I haven't had nice weather to enjoy yet. So right now, I would say winter! I can't wait to finally get his stroller out and walk and go to the park.
