I'm new to both being a mom and staying home all the time. My fiance works generally monday to friday, 8:00am to 4:00pm. I always try and get out of the apartment and visit with friends and relatives, but more often than not I'm stuck here at home.
I'm just wondering how everyone else manages to keep their child entertained. I feel so clueless sometimes that it honestly makes me cry. I do my best to read to him, take him for walks, encourage tummy time (though he hates it), and let him play with his toys in his chair. I try and play little "itsy-bitsy spider" and "patty-cake" games with him, and sometimes let him play in his saucer for a while. I never realised how many hours in a day there really were! How do some of you manage to keep your little one(s) entertained all day? I feel so guilty when I put him down to play on his own in his chair because I'm out of ideas. :(
