i am a stay at home mom (first time) and some days i feel like i am going to go nuts !! I love spending time with my little one (7 months) but once the cleaning and house is done i some times get so bored lol!! Unfortunately i do not have a car at the moment, my fiance has a great job but works a lot ....

Does anyone ever feel lonely as a stay home mom some times?

Hello Amber, yes I completely understand. But my perspective has changed sense I now understand the true Biblical meaning of being a wife & mother. It's amazing how important we are not only for our kids, & husband but we are important to God,& then to society!! Wow.That's how important what you do is!! Children USUALLY lash out when they need love and attention from both parents & we stay at home moms usually are able to accomplish that sense we are around them a lot more. Also, think about all that happens in an 8+ hour day with your child, do you really want to miss out on that (if you are considering working outside the home) not only will you miss out but YOUR CHILD will miss out on you. Another reason is we do not know if we are going to be here tomorrow don't you want to give your child the most memories of your love? Or God forbid your child pass away wouldn't you want to have all those beautiful memories. So maybe this might change your perspective on your boredom.... is there a near by park? Maybe you can take a walk its good for you& bby can get fresh air. Do you have a friend or relative that's also a stay at home mom that can visit you or chat over the phone with? I prefer talking than messaging my sisnlaw who is also a stay at home mom because we have so much in common so texting would take all day. Its good to have another adult in the same season of life as you to relate to. I hope this helps & remember you are so important & everything you do for your husband and child is so important also!! May God Bless you! :-)

I am a mother of 3. I have two teenage boys and a little girl age 3. My husband is self employed. He is NEVER HOME. I do work a few days a week but its not enough. I come home and cook and clean everyday. I get sooooo depressed. I feel so lonely. The weekends are really hard because I'm home by myself with my daughter constantly. I want to be with other moms and have other kids for my daughter to play with but I haven't found that yet. I just keep praying for God to bring peace to my mind and enough strength to get through this. I know that you have to get out. Your baby is young and I know its really hard to stay home everyday. You are making the sacrifice to stay home with your baby and its what stay at home moms do. ITS NOT EASY!!!! Try to get out when you can it will help. If you can't get out, try to stay connected online with other moms like this. It helps me get through tough moments throughout the day.
