Re: I was bored.
Last year when I was on a year long mat. leave (that's what we get up in Canada) I was sooo not looking forward to going back to work this January. However once I did I realized that I missed it (adult interaction, etc.) and I think I'm a better mommy because I have/need that little time away (I work p/t).
I think it's good to recognize what we're capable of and not knock ourselves for wanting a break from the kids and housecleaning. I agree though - SAHMs amaze me...especially those with lots of kids! After cleaning the same mess 3x before noon, my patience level starts to wane...fast! lol
