I'm just wondering what other momma's do during the day for fun or to pass the time.

My spouse & I moved 2+ hours away from everyone we know for him to take his position up here in the mountains of New England. I work out of the house which keeps me busy (along with the kids) from the time I wake up until 10AM to 4PM depending on how much work I have to do. Then I spend the rest of the day trying to connect one on one (& together) with the kids or cooking/cleaning, giving the kids baths or putting them to bed...I always say I will get more done after they go to sleep but I am so scared I will wake them up that I just end up going to bed too or having a late night snack with Rob downstairs away from the bedrooms. In my dream world we would get to attend some of the playdates scheduled by the mother's meetup group that I joined when we moved here, but it just hasn't happened yet...I also would like to take my kids on at least 1 little adventure each week so that they can experience new little pieces of the world together. I at least got them out for a walk yesterday...that was really nice. My 2 1/2 YO is learning how to ride her tricycle that she got for Christmas from her Great-Uncle.

How many children do you have?

What are their ages?

Do you work? SAHM? WAHM?

What types of activities do you do during the day with them?

Is there anything you would like to do with them that you haven't done yet?

How many children do you have? I have four


What are their ages? 12 ( in June) 9, 6, and 2


Do you work? SAHM? WAHM? SAHM...I do have a side business, but I don't make much money off of it. It's more of a hobby right now.


What types of activities do you do during the day with them? We have about 16 acres of mountain property so we explore a lot. I try to teach my older girls how to sew and cook. On our way back from the store we like to stop by the dam here under an overpass. I let them play under it and we watch the river.


Is there anything you would like to do with them that you haven't done yet? We just moved to the area so I would like to drive around the mountain roads and find some things to do.
