hello fellow mylotters, i guess this is where i destined to be, the man of the house. well, since the business that i am handling is not too active in the market now a days, so i am staying most of the time inside the house. being with my nephew who is six years old and my niece who is seven years old. before, i can still handle it and it's fine. but since this is happening all day everyday so most often than not, that i feel bored. hence, i cannot talk to the kids regarding some serious matter. this is life.

Maybe as for now, you will the man of the house, since you're not doing anything outside your house. I think that you have a lovely nephew and niece. But as you said, you cannot talk to the kids regarding some serious matter. All you can do is to play with them, and look for them. But anyways, since you are in mylot, i hope that you'll not get bored here. I hope that you're business well get active soon.

I personally know to be a man of the house, on one condition: to live alone. The housework I can handle it 100%, but as I said, I do not need companionship. Other people close to me would hinder the work. In all the ways I believe that with a few efforts to a man, to be "man of the house."

We'll I guess you have to find other things that you can do with your time that involves your nephew and niece. You will find it more exciting and at the same time you will encourage a good and happy relationship with your nephew and niece. You will be able to help them build their self esteem and confidence. You will find out that life is better to be spend with them than spending it sleeping and watching TV and your family will love you and be thankful to you.

Well i am a woman not a man ,lol,but yes being a person in the house like doing all the household chores is hard.Taking care of kids though we feel happy with them mostly its tiring too because of the noise they create.We always say no to this,no to that,and they dont even listen to you.We even shout them more often just to let them know we are already irritated coz of their noise.so being at home is really hard for me.

I guess your can online more often when the kids are doing their own stuffs or sleeping or napping.Your lucky since they are 2 of them kids which mean they can play with each other.Some adult with 1 child , have to play with the child as the child will be bored and nag the adult, so you can count yourself lucky they can play with each other and not bothered your too much.

Hi there airashiela, Enjoying mylotting lately?? Hey there I guess that is really boring huh, well taking care of children is good exercise and if they are toddlers you get to train your body and your alertness (brain) anticipating what they are gonna do or break, If youre niece or nephew can talk sit them down and ask them about life sometimes they give the most obvious answers that we grown ups don't realize, or atleast you have someone that can listen to you, try it.

The man of the house or in the house is not the same as you describe. This would mean to me that you are the eldest man in the family and responsible. I think what you talk about is kind of houseman? Although I don't hear you say you are doing the housekeeping as well. Even without a job there are plenty of things you can do. making a scedule of what to do when, which can include to take your niece outside too, is something you can start with. Perhaps you can not talk to children about some serious subjects but there are many subject you can talk about with them. And who knows it will open your eyes and also learn you to enjoy other things that make life interesting and less boring.

Just taking care of the kids the whole day and simultaneously attending to your business and the house is really something that should not make you bored at all. Doing them, is enough to make you feel frantic of the things you have to do everyday. But, i must congratulate you for being the man of the house. Others would say that it's so easy to be one, but they are mistaken. As you have said, it's up to you to make time alone for your own entertainment.

Hi airasheila The best part of life is that it is quite unpredictable many times. I see that you have a great opportunity to be a better man of the house than many others. Here is why I think this way - many of today's men of the house, work hard away from house most of the day, and the time they are at home, there are so many things to do... Now, you are lucky enough to see and have some spare time at house and you are investing the time in the right directions. Only thing- you are not sure how to go about it. How about playing with the kids, teaching them some of their books! You can also play a role in helping your partner in the daily chores of the household and that too will help in strengthening your relationships. There are always so many ways to be a part of the family and you have a great opportunity at hand... Please make the best use of it

Well, that just life. But if you are persistent, and you might come up some great idea to improve your business, and you might be able to competitive in the market place. So, things might turn around if you can come up some fresh idea. Hopefully, you can temporary enjoy what you are doing in the house, at the same time, you can come up some great idea for your business.
