    Default Do you ever stay at home all day?

    Since dd2 was born 3mths ago we definitely have more home days. Plus it's been a shocking winter and someone has been sick the whole time.

    We go for a walk every morning m-f and in the afternoon walk to a park/shops/playdate.

    My dd1 is happy to potter around the house. DH also gets home around 4pm and often takes dd1 for a bike ride.

    I need to be home 3-4 days a week to keep on top of my cooking/cleaning.

    We have as many at home days as possible! I aim to have at least two days a week where we don't go out at all. Now that DS1 is at school it's a bit harder, and last term I ended up needing to be out almost every day of the entire term because DH wasn't able to pick him up as per usual. I was pretty stressed out by the end of the term. I love being at home all day.

    We go out every day! All different places, parks (we try loads of different ones), beach, road trips up/down the coast.

    I hate staying at home all day, I always have!

    I like to stay home 5 days a week though don't usually manage it. Living rurally and on a farm makes a difference though; always work to do here and if you go out for even half the day, it backs up a bit. I am a homebody though and very happy here, pottering about. We have friends over rather than go out often.

    On the first year I was home almost every day as we only had one car and my husband needed it for work, since then I'd say we stay home a couple times a week at least. My son can't handle being out all day every day and neither can I.
