i have a 4 year old and a 2.5 month old. iv always worked and gone to college but i do nothing these days. Im 28 and stay home with the kids which i like doing....i wouldnt trust a daycare with my newborn. i have to admit though.. some days i spend almost the whole day watching tv. My mother never used to let me watch tv during the day so i feel like a huge loser. My bf has a successful job and is always in work mode and i know he thinks ...WTF do you do all day? a newborn is nonstop work though! i guess i feel guilty....i clean everyday and make dinner...i do love being stay at home but sometimes get scared iv fallen into a rut. office jobs are even more dull i guess.....
so be honest...i know everyone isnt doing arts and crafts and trips to the museum EVERY day!! hehe

My DH totally gets what I do all day. When I was pg with dd3 I was on full bedrest from week 11. I couldn't do a darn thing for 7 months. He also gets it because I have fibromyalgia and he has seen it at its worst. Somedays I sit in my chair and supervise the kids while playing on the computer. Those are the days my body is really bad. On good days we try to go somewhere even if it is to grandpas. I babysit so there are usually bonuses  around, both my littles are in preschool but on different days and I generally run the errands for the house. Every day I drive dd11to school, then one of the littles, pick up the littles, drive dd11 to tutoring and back or quiz practice, church on Wed. In a house with 3 kids plus bonuses plus a dh plus a zoo of pets there is always something to do. I am not the artsy craftsy lets go to the zoo mom.
