My last day of work was Sept 25,2010 the day my almost then 2 year old broke her tibia and also the second day I was having really good contractions with my son. He was born Oct 1 and Lila`s second birthday was Oct 23. In between those days we had 5 doctors appts along with a wedding and 2 birthday parties. It was a crazy month! Anyways, between doing dishes atleast 2 times a day and 3-5 loads of laundry somedays, trying to discipline Lila and make sure she isn`t hitting Liam and hoping they get naps throughout the day as well as time for myself being home is not as easy as some people think. Its very stressful somedays, its not just about playing with your children and having playdates. Some women agree with staying home and others looks down on it thinking we don`t do anything. Just a little bit of venting but hoping I`m not the only one who feels this way.

It's definitely something that DH doesn't understand fully, as he sometimes wonders what I do all day!

Well I don't have a toddler to chase around along with a new baby, but I know where you're coming from. I visit my friends at my old job a lot and one of the guys asked me last week "So.. what do you do all day?" as if I sit on my butt for 9 hours. He didn't mean it offensively, but I just said "Well, if I'm not feeding him, changing a diaper, or
