Hi Amelia,
Welcome to circleofmoms :)

Your not alone in your journey as a SAHM. We all feel like you at some point or other. But you have a purpose/mission and you do have a life. Your babies are your life. Try getting out and going to parks, libraries, places you see other children playing. If you try to keep your children active/busy you'll keep yourself busy and won't feel so alone.

I know exactly how you feel, been there, done all that. I have 3 growing kids now, but when they were little I felt like there was no other moms out there like me. I felt like the odd ball in the family too because all my sister-in-laws/brothers/brother-in-laws worked and so did their wives. They would talk to me like looking down at me or like I wasn't worth talking to because I didn't understand what they were talking about according to them. But the truth is that they were envious/jealous because I got to stay at home raising my kids and not having someone else do it like they did. I kept myself busy by opening my own licensed home daycare and started out small. With just 2-4 other children and as my kids grew I changed the age and limit. I got to meet new people and make friends that way. I would always take the kids to the park, the library to story time or where ever I saw that there where children playing. That way my children and the other children I took care of also got some socialization and learn to play nice with other kids.

Being a SAHM has been a very rewarding experience to me and I wouldn't change it any of it. Now that they're bigger I don't do childcare anymore (retired) but I try to keep myself busy.

Hope this helps. You can always send me a msg if you want someone to talk to or you can look me up on FB to chat ;)

Have a nice day :)
