I have one in school and two at kindy 2 days now but when they are at home ( or before we had school ) we were always pretty much out at playgrounds, bush walking , doing stuff outside in the garden , I seem to be bogged down with never ending laundry and cleaning . I never sit and read and we don't have normal Tv just DVDs - so the kids might watch a DVD . We do art and playdough , make new swings out of rope outside , go swimming , eat and eat . I never seem to get any time to myself but I can't exactly say what I've done '! Ha ha ha . 8 years of this . Will go back to work when my youngest starts school in 2018 . It will be a huge shock to my system !

I have to leave the house at least once a day - or else I go nuts! I too have anxiety and often find my anxiety tells me to stay at home but I feel soooo much better once I've left the house with my kids to socialise or get some fresh air. We do the following:
Kindergym for DD once per week
Lunch at my mum and dads place 2 x a week
Ballet for DD once per week
Park or walk every day in the late afternoon - I have to walk the dog daily anyway so I try and combine it with some outdoor time for the kids
Other days we might do library, beach, picnic lunch in a park, play centre, play date at a friends house or just a trip to the shops.
When I'm at home I try and do most of my housework in the morning when the kids are in a good mood and more likely to play independently. Once DS is asleep I do some one - on - one play with DD, then he wakes and they both have lunch. After lunch (or at lunch) we all do one of the above activities, then come home, DD has a nap, I play with DS. Then hopefully around 30 mins for me when they both nap at the same time, DD gets up, I prep dinner. DS gets up, off to walk the dog, then home for dinner bath and bed routine.
In terms of getting out of the house I follow Constance Halls advice - 'if it makes you feel anxious it probably means you should do it!'
