    when I was a SAHM yes we did. As a kid I loved days where we just got to stay home all day and didn't have to go anywhere (I was a real homebody as a kid) and I know that for my kids, when we've been out everyday, after a while they're begging for a day where we can just stay home all day.

    Default Do you ever stay at home all day?

    I go out every day. I would go crazy if I didn't. It is very rare for us to stay home all day. I am home for my son's nap usually.

    When I was a sahm we went to plays group 2 mornings a week, We went walking every morning. Other than that yeh we were home quite often through the day. If I was having a bad day with bubs I found getting out of the house such as going for a nice walk did wonders rather than go crazy at home.

    yup we stay home heaps. i hate having to go out. Our days run smoother when we dont have to go out or be somewhere at a certain time. We have playgroup mondays and thurdays, swimming wends and thats enough for me!
    DD is realy good at entertaining herself and pottering about at home. She reads her books/plays with her dolls/pretend play in her "kitchen" and i'll set up drawing stuff for her to come and go to. She also has a 3hr nap in the middle of the day, i just hope she keeps it up as she gets older as shes only 18mths and also when #2 is here in dec. Otherwise i think the baby carrir/sling will be attached to me!

    We got out somewhere most days but we usually have a day at home each week.

    Default Re: Do you ever stay at home all day?

    We very often don't go out. But if we don't go out, I do a few activities at home with the kids, like playdoh, painting, have a picnic outside for lunch etc. I have a high energy 4yr old who was 2 when DS 2 was born and the best thing I learnt was outside outside outside! DS2 was calmer out in the fresh air, and DS1 could run off his energy

    DS has kinder 3 days a week and swimming on a non kinder day, so Mondays are the day we have the option of staying home all day. Sometimes on Mondays (I almost wrote Nomdays...om nom nom, LOL), we go for a quick walk to the supermarket, sometimes we laze around all day and I catch up on housework while the kids play.

    Default Re: Do you ever stay at home all day?

    Unless DS is sick, or both me and DH are sick at same time, we always go out every day. I think it's important for DS to have fresh air and a change of scenery. Even if it's just going to the local park, but we usually try to find somewhere new or some community event each weekend. If he's in the house all day he goes nuts. But i was the same as a child and still am now!

    I stay home everyday. My kids have kinder, daycare, school and music during the week. Apart from music I just do drop off and pick ups.
    We only have Thursday as our day at home and we never go anywhere.
    I don't even go to the shops or a park.

    Default Re: Do you ever stay at home all day?

    I quite often stay at home all day. I don't drive and it saves me lots of money.

    My grandparents live across the rd and we're around the corner from a huge park though so we go to those places more than anywhere else.
