I sometimes wish I had more time for creative hobbies, but I don't feel too imbalanced as a mom in general. We'll see if that changes over time but having my smartphone and being able to read lots of books and articles and current events helps me feel less isolated. I read about a lot of topics other than pregnancy and parenting, technology, science, politics, world affairs, local news, etc so I don't feel like my kid(s) is the only thing I can talk about. The fact that I can read all that stuff instantly from a small hand held device, while BFing or lying with a napping baby or sitting with DD while she plays, I think that is pretty amazing. I remember my friend's mom talking about how she read War and Peace cover to cover, twice, while BFing her kids, and was bored out of her mind and couldn't wait to go back to work... I could imagine that would suck!!! But I have a completely different experience and I do credit technology for that.
