I have a 14 month old daughter who is all over the place these days so i usually spend my time playing with her, watching movies with her, i play online when she's occupied with her toys & such. I also spend my time writing letter - i LOVE to pen pal, so that keeps me pretty occupied as well. I do have the usual housework & stuff but since i make it so i do a little a day, i have heaps of time to do other things :) I am also working on making my eBay store bigger & better so if i can do that then i'll be spending my time online, making money!

That is great to hear that you and your daughter have heaps of fun together. And it also sounds that you get time to yourself to which is good. All parents need there own time to things. My son loves to play with people and he likes to play on his own at times as well. Right now he is sitting infront on the tv watching sesame street. He has loves the tv since he was about 2 months old for some reason. When he used to have his tummy time he used to turn around and watch tv. Good luck with the ebay store and best wishes for you and your daughter.

I am a stay at home home to my two kids. I have been a homemaker for about 8 years already. Time really flies. My day is taken up with mostly doing household chore like preparing meals,getting groceries,ironing,washing and the list goes on....I'm waiting for for 2 year son to grow up a little more before going bck to work.

sounds like you got ur hands full. I never do ironing as i have a dryer and if you take the clothes out and hang them up straight away they are crease free. And we do the shopping once a week saves on going to the shops every couple of days wich is what im sure you do. Apart from if we need milk then i just go to the servo, wich is on the way from picking up my partner from work. And i do the washing every two to three days as i only do me my partner and sons washing. Everyone else does there own thank god. I do the general tidy up every morning. Give my son a bath and thats it. Not too hard.

Before I had the computer I would make sure that I made my son and I go out either to the park or to the grocery store. But now I work on the computer. So I almost spend too much time online.
