    Yeah i do find it lonely, but sometimes more then others.

    I try to get out of the house at lease 3 days a week to a morning activity. I am finding it a bit better now my DD is just about starting to talk (20 months) so i can interact and enjoy her more and my DS who is 5 months is all settled and in routine.
    However i do miss the adult conversation and stimulation. although i love being a SAHM and feel so lucky we can afford it and we also intend to have more children so i am kinda just suck it up and get use to it. But i know my limits and sometimes it hits the weekend and i say to my husband we gotta go out and catch up with some friends or something haha.

    Lonely and bored. DD is at school and I'm on mat leave with DS. After 11 months at home I'm looking forward to going back to work part-time next month. Even if money wasn't an issue, I know I couldn't be a full time SAHM.

    God yes. Lonely, bored, frustrated. You name it. It's better now I'm back at work 2 days a week. School drop offs and pickups also help as you see other people and it breaks up the day.

    Lonely, bored, dependant. I hate it but love it at the same time. I also have no friends or family here which I think makes it harder for me. I have no escape. It does make me appreciate my dh more though (not that I've never not appreciated him!)

    Yes, especially during the weeks that DH is away for work. If I don't get out of the house every day then I have no adult contact which makes me feel extremely isolated. Talking to an almost 1 year old and a 2 year old just isn't the same.

    No not when they are here because they are always wanting to do stuff with me, but when they go to bed and on daycare/school/preschool day I'm very lonely. Yet i have no desire to really be around anyone. Hmm

    I'm much less lonely than I used to be. Having school age kids as well as little ones is great for making friends. My kids are very independent so apart from feeding them and tending to basic needs they generally do their own thing.

    I'm back to work part time now, so no more SAHM, but when i was home all the time i was lonely too. I always thought i wanted to be SAHM, but I didn't realise how isolating it can be. Not for me, I was happy when I decided to go back 3 days a week. When i was off i made an effort for us to do lots of activities too: gymbaroo, mothers group, mum&bubs physio.
