I felt alot like this before. I have a 3 year old and I NEVER left the house because it was just easier to stay home. Then a friend introduced me to Scentsy, I know starting your own business on top of having child, GOOD GOD! But it really has helped alot. I get to get out there meet new people and make money. At home It gives me something to do besides watching kids shows and cooking. I make packets to send out, I make samples (makes the house smell amazing) and I get to have "parties" and make money doing it. If you have any questions just let me know. I hope this helps.

I wish there was stuff from meetup.com that I could go to but nope :P nothing in my rural area as usual. I'm screwed! haha. 1500 miles away from any family and I'm stuck in the house with 2 kids and a husband in the oilfield in the middle of rural kansas :)

Totally understand the feeling. The one thing that I think has helped me to deal with this feeling the most has been actually sitting down and analyzing where all my time goes in a day. This way I can manage my time better, I still have that quality time with my daughter, and I get everything done around the house. I hope this is of some help to you :)

Wow this is my life too! None of my friends have kids so having a conversation with them is a little different now.

i understand how you feel. i too am a stay at home mom. Im stuck in my house with my two young children all day everyday. My husband takes our only car with him to work everyday so i cant even drive anywhere. my mother is my only friend. I love my kids with all my heart but i feel so isolated from the world. im hoping once my kids go to school i can make some friends with other moms.

my husband deploys often, and my daughter is 2. i find myself calling my mom frequent times a day just to see what shes doing. i also spend a lot of time on here because i dont have people my own age to talk to. lol. its frustrating, and i whole heartedly know how you feel! :)

I am in the same exact boat, I live in Lake County Illinois, are you by there? Maybe we could set up a play date at a park or something

sites like this are good, and help you feel not so alone. Do you have any hobbies? If so, maybe there are groups you could join with others that share the same interests, for example I belong to a book club / reading group at my local library, and have joined a stitching group recently too - which I found via meetup.com

you could also check and see what programs are going on at your local library, to see if there is anything that would interest you while the kids are at school. Maybe google events in your area too, to see what is going on out there.

you could also think about volunteering maybe, I know some seniors organizations have programs where you can visit seniors that have no family etc, and the community health centre near me has a "rock a bye baby" scheme where volunteers help parents of young children that have no family support. Just a few ideas, good luck!!

Oh I do know how you feel lol. Although I love my babies dearly I so need adult conversation after a day of cartoons lol. But this site has been very helpful for me I've met lots of moms and get to chat with some of them, so this site can be of help as well :)

There are SAHM groups out there (check www.meetup.com) that do things with and without kids. One I used to belong to had "Moms' Night Out" once a month. We would do things like go to dinner or just go shopping together.

Maybe you should set up some playdates for the kids and then you and the other Mums could sit down and have a chat. Even befriend some of the other Mums at school and after you've dropped the kids off go and have a coffee.
