I am a SAHM I have 2 kids Kimberly who is 4 and She thinks that she knows everything and she has a comment and a comeback for everything, I also have a little boy who will turn 2 on Feb. 23rd. I usually dont get to go anywhere without him. You can definitly say he is a mommas boy. i dont get out much just usually stay at home so therefore i dont talk to many people. I get pretty lonely when my hubby is at work. I really have enjoyed getting on here and reading how other moms and dads are having the same problems i am and it helps. I enjoy giving advice when i got it and love getting it. i just want to be able to talk to someone who knows how i feel.

Hi Crystal. I'm in the same boat! I LOVE being able to stay home with my kids but it does get lonely. I CRAVE adult conversation by the end of the day. And to wake up just to do it all over again, I mean how many times can you mop the same floor, ya know. lol. It's hard to get out and do things with friends bc all of my attention is on my 4 month old so I'm really not good company anymore. :( I'm here, wishing I had more friends that are in the same situation as me.

Message me anytime! I feel the same way alot, my husband gets off at 3:30 and i talk his ear off until we go to bed..lol...we just had to relocate for my husband's job so now he's at work and it's just me and Gabe all day. I have tried to meet other mom's in the area but alot of mom's in our new area are really "snooty", and i guess i freak them out being "too friendly". I just joined this site a few days ago and i have fallen in love all ready. My LO is 9 months and i welcome any advice from women with older kids than me!

meetup.com, your library for story time, or your rec center for play groups.

I definitely know how you feel. I am a SAHM to a son who turned 3 in November and a daughter who turned 1 in Oct. All the friends I have here are busy with their own lives and kids, so we do not get together much. My hubby works 3 hours away and is gone all week and home on the weekends, which is just long enough to mess up my and the kids routines. It gets to be a little much sometimes and I will be adding school to it all in a couple weeks. Luckily it will be online classes this term, so I can do it after the kids are in bed. That is the only free time I get. You are NOT alone! We live near my hubby's family, but I miss my family all the time. as they live in another state. I hope that you have the chance to get out and meet some people! :)

I have the same problem i live in a small town and i dont know many people. But i have found a mommy and me group that meets once a week and i was able to meet other stay at home moms. if you look online at meetup.com there might be something in your area i even take my son (he just turned 2 on the 26th of dec) to the park or i set up play dates with the other moms from the group. it has helped me meet people and for my son to interact with other children. hope this helps with finding ways to get out of the house and makes friends for you and your children.

Hi. I am currently a stay at home mum too but mine are both finally at school age. my daughter is starting school in january and my son will be in grade three. i totally get where you are coming from though. my husband travels a lot for work so when he is away it is just me all the time. it has got to the point where the kids come looking for me even if he is home. he takesthem out when he can but our son has aspergers and he resists doing things that weren't in his plan for the day. i can however tell you that it does get better. when they get to school you meet a whole new set of mums and have all new conversations with the kids. just make sure you fit in some time for yourself (even if you have to hide in the bathroom. i do:-))

I know that lonely feeling. I stay home with my 21 month old and 2 month old and I feel so isolated sometimes. No one in my family can relate, so I try to find people who get it. It's impossible to relate to unless you've been there. I used to be able to get out every day when I just had one baby, but now that I have 2 it's a huge ordeal just to get out the door, and I'm usually too busy anyways to go anywhere. By the time my husband gets home from work at 6pm, I'm exhausted and I don't want to fight rush hour traffic to 'get out' by myself.
