I'm a stay at home mom. I'm about to have my second child and I feel like i'm wasting away. What do you do during the week that's fun and free. Just for you time.

I read, and I joined a book club at my library. We all read the same book, then meet to discuss while our little ones are in the next room having story time. That satisfies my need for stimulating adult conversation.

I also invite friends whenever we go to the pool or park--even if they don't have kids, they often join me in the spring and fall just for the fresh air.

I LOVE to draw. It is my release and I feel productive.

I also volunteer with a local at risk youth program. Very rewarding, but I cannot bring my son, so you do have to have child care. Oh, there is another great program through most humane societies where you take a pound pup into visit people in a nursing home. You CAN take your kids with you for that, but I think they may have to be a certain age. J is old enough, but not sure about infants.

I like to read, do crossword puzzles, look for new recipes to try because I love to cook, go for a walk, listen to music, watch a good movie, and chat with moms on the cirlce of moms which always help!!! It's hard to get YOU time after having kids so if I'm not doing 1 of those things I mentioned I'm with my kids lol.
