Do you have babies at home, kids in school or both?

What do you do all day while you are home with your kids?

My day starts off pretty reasonable. My daughter who is now 1 wakes up around 9:00 am, not bad considering alot of other moms wake up WAY earlier than that. I get my daughter her oatmeal and milk and we watch cartoons for a while, then we play together until about two hours pass when it's time for her nap. I use that time to make lunch and clean up a bit. (Sometimes I even get to take a nap myself ;-D) She wakes up we have lunch then I let her play while I plan the rest of my day out. Do whatever else needs to get done, until her daddy gets home then we all spend time together, usually go somewhere. Then go back home put her to bed, then start the day over the same way we always do. :) I love being a stay at home mom.

I have a 2 1/2 year old. I get up, change him, make breakfast, play with toys, have to sit down from nausia, work on numbers, almost throw up, play "hide under the blanket", make lunch, watch a movie or a tv show,change him again, naptime for Corbin, I get on the computer, think about napping myself, almost throw up, finish computer work, get Corbin up, make a snack, work on learning body parts, drawing time, maybe a time-out here and there, wait for daddy to come home,change another diaper, almost puke again, daddy comes home and lets me rest (I'm pregnant and high-risk), eat dinner, watch the boys (daddy and Corbin) play, referee a bit, get Corbin ready for bed, change yet another diaper, good-night kisses and hugs, daddy takes him to bed, mommy and daddy have about two to maybe three hours to talk, watch a movie, etc. before passing out and starting over again. Every once in a while, we'll go over to Grandma's house, and almost every weekend, Corbin spends one night over there... and mommy and daddy pass out about two hours earlier than usual. But, "date night" for my fiance and I is EVERY Wednesday, no matter what! "Date night" consists of us maybe renting a movie and snuggling on the couch, or fixing a special dinner that only he and I will eat (and fix Corbin something different earlier) for just the two of us. It doesn't sound like much, but that's what I do. And right now I'm making Christmas gifts from things I have around the house (trying to be resourceful).
