    I know how you feel. I have two little boys...a one year old and a two year old and right now I am not working. Its below zero here in pa because we are by the allegany mountains so walking and playing outside doesn't sound fun. I think today I am going to bake cookies with the boys for grandma, color a little, play clean up time, chase em around the house with the vaccumm monster(lol) and go to a store. As stupid as that sounds sometimes all I need is to go out to a store and walk around a little. Just get out and see other people who speak in adult language. Even if I don't have money to buy anything we still have fun messin with all the toys in the toy section. lol Hope you find something to do today! Why not head out to a store? Or take your little Jessie out somewhere like a coffee shop... you can get to sit down and drink hot choco together? Just some ideas. :) Maybe make mommy a fancy dinner together? I love planning little projects like that and then get the boys all dressed up and excited to show off. lol

    Ken you are so lucky. Every day that I have to get up and take my little guy to day care and go to my job, I envy people like you so much. I want nothing more than to stay home and be with my son. I hope I can be someday soon.

    In order to be a "stay at home mom" and still earn a little income, I babysit my cousin, Faith, who will be one on Feb. 11th and has spina bifida. My Ivy is sixth months and fifteen days. My day consists of sitting on the floor and playing peekaboo, "what's that?", "let's make a lot of noise", changing diaper after diaper, breastfeeding and bottle feeding and spoon feeding (often at the same time), and watching cartoons. I graduated in May with an undergraduate marine bio degree with which I won't do anything with for a long, long time. I get very frustrated sometimes. But then I think...what other almost 23 year old gets to play and watch cartoons all day?? All that knowledge we've acquired over the years is still in there somewhere, waiting to come out...eventually. Don't rush things, that's what I say. All too soon our babies will be grown and we'll have to go back to that cruel, boring, adult world. And maybe by then, our minds will be fresh and rested. This is what I hope and believe. :)
