I'm new to being a SAHM since my son is only 3 1/2 months. I find the hardest thing about staying home is lack of adult interaction. I fortunate enough that DH work schedule is flexible right now (at least until summer when he switches his schedule), so when DS was 2 1/2 months, we worked out a sleep schedule, so we both get 8 hours. I sleep from 10-6 and he sleep from 2-10. We just started putting our son to sleep by 8pm and he sleeps until 2am, so DH takes that shift and then gs oes to bed. I have him the rest of the day. Luckily, I am able to go to then gym, relax, or catch up on household chores while DS sleeps for a couple of hours during his afternoon nap.
DH and I haven't had a date night since he was born (our choice). It's hard for us to let other people watch him even though we live in a two-family house with the in-laws and DH is an only child, so our son is their only grandchild and I know they really want to watch him.I'm sure by the time we have one or two more, I'll be begging MIL to help! what
