Let me preface this by saying that the title is meant to be attention-grabbing, not inflammatory, so please don't take offense. I used to post on The Bump a lot (not this board), but haven't much in the last few months. I am not a SAHM, I work 3 days a week, 11 am to 11pm. I have a 2 1/2 year old son who I am home with 4 days a week. And I am bored to tears. So my question is: what do you ladies do to fill your time? Obviously, you spend a good amount of time feeding, bathing, playing with your kids. But what else do you do? I feel like I live my life in 2 different days: one that consists of only work, since my 12 hour shifts pretty much take up a whole day, and one that consists of me being at home doing laundry, dishes, and occasionally going to the grocery store. I feel like I'm not really exposing my son to all that I can. At least he gets interaction with other children at daycare on the 3 days that I work. The only other kid in our family is 3 weeks old (my niece). I feel like I can't really do anything too involved or far from home because nap time cuts right into the middle of the day. Plus, I could really use some 'me' time. My husband and I used to go bar hopping on the weekends before we had our son and while I still like to go out on occasion, that doesn't interest me anymore. What do you do? With and without your kids? TIA.
