Hey ladies, im a young mother (23) to two wonderful, adorable and loving kids. But being a stay at home mom, i feel like a prisoner in my own home .. i literally feel like i absolutly have no life what so ever and it is pretty depressing. I know im not the only one out there that feels the same way. My fiance goes to work everyday and sometimes gets invited to his buddys house for poker night. Now i know this might sound a little weird but i guess you could say that im jealous of the fact that he gets that time to himself even though he literally is surrounded by friends. Meanwhile im home 24-7, doing the same routine day in and day out. I only go out with the kids if WE go grocery shopping, i dont get time to myself and its driving my nuts.(literally) And when we do hang out with other people (which the times are counted, so very few times) my fiance says i dont really speak to anyone.. but what does he expect i really only talk to my two kids (age 3 and 1) and him sometimes when he gets home from work if he doesnt fall asleep. it is frustrating, I love my kids to death and would do absolutly anything for them, but i feel like this is taking a toll on me. What I would like to know is from the mamas who are going through this, what are you doing to cope with everyday stress from your kids., feeling depressed, feeling lonley?
