I have been a stay at home mom for over a year now I have a fiance that works 6 days a week 10 - 12 hours a day so im home all day with the kids that are 5 years old,3 years old and a 6 months old and he has a 6 year old daughter that comes over on weekends and they are DRIVING ME CRAZY, more than ever right now since its the summer no school or anything,I dont drive so I cant go places with them all I can do is let them play outside but they complain about the heat, or let them play a game in the house but nobody wants to share, I try and have movie time with them but no one wants to agree on a movie, I try going for walks that doesnt work because I got kids running everywhere, complaining about the heat, or one that just dont want to walk and I got the 6 month old that just wants to cry all day. I really need a job but in the mean time any suggestions.

I am a single, stay at home mom. You will be surprised on how boring my daily life can be, since my baby is just a few months old... when he's asleep, I stay online most of the time to earn. I am not sure if I am in the position to advise you on what other options you have, since my son is so young, how would I know. Besides, it's kinda hard, because each age phase may have a different thing they enjoy most. No problem with the youngest baby you have. But I hope your 5 year old and 3 year old have a game they both like...or something they can enjoy together. Try observing how they play. Maybe you can get a tip from there.

I also am a stay at home mom. My kids drive me crazy too. My husband is an over the road truck driver, so most times I am the only parent. If you belong to a church sometimes they have "playdates" for kids. If you don't belong to a church call around and see if any in your area (within walking distance) has one. Best of luck to you! I know how you feel!

I am a stay at home mom too, and I homeschool my kids, so I am with my kids all the time. We are members of a playgroup that I made on yahoo, we meet once or twice a month. You can try meetup.com they have tons of playgroups, I am sure you can find one in your area.
