Like you, no time for boredom. I have a 6 year old daughter. She has taken dance and swimming lessons at different times. Now her thing is Girl scouts. She is now a Daisy. I have an 11 month old son. He is in Parents as Teachers Program. And I work from home. Yes tired of four walls. But most of the time too busy to care anymore.

I hear you on the no time..I was about to find out if I would get bored..our youngest was 17 and a senior..I was this close..and then we got custody of our 7 year old grandson again..I'll let you know in 11 years if I get bored. I've been doing it over 20 years though, I guess if I was going to, it would have happened by now.

I am a stay at home mum we call them house wifes in England.I am so busy all day I don't really know how I found time to go to work.But you are right I do fed up sometimes then I go out for a walk or go for a coffee,lunch or have someone else to lunch.It makes a nice change there are several housewifes around my area so we all keep each other company.So I suppose we are the same the world over.love what we do but still like a bit of our own life.

I don't usually get bored and I hated it when my kids would say they were. Even when I was a kid I kept busy and used my imagination to find something to do. I go to the park or walk on the greenbelt and ride my mountain bike when the weather is nice. I go to an occasion movie, to the library, or go out to eat occasionally.

Not bored as such. Although I do feel that I need more of a challenge, you know something I can do to use my brain more. I like coming to sites like myLot and I'm quite active over at HubPages, so that keeps me on my toes writing-wise, but I do feel as if there's something missing.. I also see friends a lot and do plenty of kids' activities and I like doing those too, and I feel really privileged to be able to spend so much time with my child. So over all I love being a stay at home mum - I just feel that now I want to maybe become a work-at-home mum!

My mom is a full-time house wife but i think she doesn't have anytime to be bored with all the chores and things she have to do at home. When i will start a family of my own someday i am planning to quit my job and become a full-time mom also. I still believe that its different when you are rising your own children personally than just trusting someone else to do the job.

I used to be really bored, then I started getting on the internet and became a work at home mom. I started my own business 8 years that is all done on line. I also do a lot of writing on line and those things along with being a mom and keeping up with the housework keep me pretty busy now, Actually overwhelmed a lot of the time.

I stay home to take care of my child. Boredom rises from having nothing to do. My daughter's energy and household chores wear me off enough for the whole day that boredom is far from being thought of. But to avoid being "fed up" by routine, I set time solely for myself and go out without my kid, spending a few hours entirely appreciating what I am and enjoying life apart from being a mother and a wife. It works for me since I used to have another career before motherhood.

I stay at home and I do get bored sometimes. I try to keep the house up and I cook our meals and I keep up the laundry and play on the computer and do things with my son like flashcards, workbooks, coloring, playing, etc.. but I still get bored sometimes. Maybe it's not really bored...maybe it's just that I miss adult interaction sometimes. Don't get me wrong..I love being home with my son but sometimes I wish I had someone to just come over during the day to talk adult talk with me instead of toddler talk everyday. lol There is always something to do everyday though.

There was a time when I got bored being a stay at home mother and that is why I ended up going back to work after my first child was born. However, when the second came along, it didn't financially make sense for me to go back to work so I've been a stay at home mother ever since then. Do I get bored now, no. I do babysit my two nieces and we are also in a playgroup so we get the chance to go play with other children during the week and such. Plus, there is always housework that needs to be done so there is never a shortage of things for me to do.

Hi jugsjugs, You are right.We need to engage ourself and be active always.Then only we will not be bored.And we will updated about all.We should not always watch TV to make us engaged.Concentrate on different things so u can pass ur time interestingly.

I will never ever go boring. I keep myself occupied with something or other always. Earlier embroidary, reading, house work etc. was there. Now apart from house work, I go to meet my daughter, read a lot, be in Mylot and sometimes I visit other sites. I try to help my other daughter in her studies by way of typing in computer or read it out while she is typing.

I became a stay at home mom once, because I created a business from home, and it lasted 2 years, but I must finally admit that staying indoor all the day and all the week is just not my character. I finally realize that I am a people-person. I have to see people and talk to them. So now I'm working again...and took a job where I see many people every day.

I am a mom, but not stay at home. Actually, I hope I can stay at home and do some free job. In that case, I cam take care of my son myself. I don't think I will be bored, my son is really naughty, and keep me busying all day long except he is sleeping. And I can do much things on line and visit my friends once I have time. Have a great day and happy mylotting.

I also ask my wife if she gets bored at home but she admittedly say she's enjoying with my son playing, maybe because its our first baby and she loves what shes doing right now.

I am a stay at home mom but I work online seven days a week also and keep up with everything that has to be done around the home also. I do not have any time to get bored either. There is too much to do.

I have been a stay at home mom for a few years now and I love it. I admit there are times when it seems boring but there are also so many other times when it is relaxing and great. I love that I am able to be here to send my kids off to school and able to be here when they get home, I am able to sit down each night and help them with their homework as well as eat dinner with them. I am also able to make sure that each night they are tucked in and safe. There are things that I do that keep me pretty busy during the day and then the kids keep me so busy in the evening that I don't have time to think about being trapped in the same four walls.

I am not a mom, but I do stay at home. I have not been able to look for work since my husband has a boss who does not allow him to do anything. My husband is treated badly and yet he still stays. My husband does not care that our marriage is suffering. He would much rather work as a slave to his boss. His boss claims there is no money in the budget to give him more hours but yet his boss can hire two new people full time. I, on the hand, feel so depressed. I have tried talking to my husband and it does not help at all. All we do is fight. My husband does not care that I have been sitting here all day crying and that I am also so close to wanting to end my marriage.

Well it was years ago I was a stay at home mom but if I was a stay at home mom I'd take the kids out to the park or on some other fun activity.
