Staying at home...a new concept for me!

With an unexpected difficult pregnancy I stayed home and pretty much slept all day. Now with my baby I have found myself going crazy. I had no idea that I would crave simple human interaction this much.

The worst part: My husband is in the Navy and has conveniently decided that since we managed really well with me staying home during my pregnancy that we can manage for me to be a full time sahm for a while. Don't get me wrong, I would love to stay home with my baby boy all day and watch hi grow, from his first roll to his first steps, to his first words. I just wish there was an easier way to make friends. With him working long hours I feel like I don't really get any "me" time and definitely no "friend" time.

Okay, mini rant over! (:

Oh Meg, if only it were that easy....actually it might be! (: My husband works extremely long hours, we're talking monday through friday from 5 am to 11pm. It's hard to squeeze in too much time. Luckily I can take my son with me to the store, just not necessarily to the bar with some of my friends. All the moms I know always flake out on plans too :/ I've tried play dates quite a few times and only one of them ever actually worked out. But I will definitely keep trying!! Thanks (:

      I understand what you feel. Sometimes when my husband works late I feel this way too , but glad I can stay home with my children...We get out and do lots of things together like Meg said so it is not as hard!
