hi. I'm a SAHM. I have an almost 2 year old. I'm a little concerned about the adjustment of her getting used to not having her siblings home to play with her as much since everyone was home for so long. Yes, I'll have more time for her since I won't also be busy with her siblings but still. And things like library hour... probably won't be happening in the near future either...

To be honest she might benefit from going to playgroup a few days a week if you have such an option.

Kids are resilient. Give her structure to her day. Good luck. Enjoy being home with her Smile

If you are from Monsey I would love to open a mommy and me group. I love staying home with my kids but it does get heart sometimes. They just need an hour of interaction
Sometimes I get that by going to the grocery or the mall

I've seen multiple mother and toddler groups advertising now in in my area. I'm sure you can find that type of thing where you live. It's a great way for you and your toddler to socialise.

This is what I found. My baby's 15 months, and since the older kids went off to day camp each day, he was fussy and clingy and a total grump all day. I work part time and he had a one on one babysitter (an older lady) until corona. He got used to all of us and the kids all being home and despises the silence. For this year I've put him in a group with other babies his age instead of a babysitter for him alone in my home.

so b"H day one down and b"H it was fine or as fine as having a very opinionated toddler will be. I mean she did take off her dress in the middle of burlington because she saw a dress she wanted to try on lol Smile We picked up books from the library, bought a few items in the store...

I’m home with my two year old too. I don’t know why people constantly push to send babies out. I think it’s great for them to be home with mommy. My toddler is slightly bored but it’s fine.

Good for you. I’m so happy for you.
I understand when moms have to leave babies at playgroups, but never let anyone convince you that it’s actually better for your child.

Because kids are bored, cry when they see other kids, etc. Also I can't plan activities every day, nor clean well with a toddler around, I don't shop every day either and I don't drive.

I agree! A 2 year old who has their mommy all to themselves is one really lucky kid. At that age they are really babies still and have a lot of physical needs and mommy can take care of them like no one else can. As long as you stimulate your child talk /sing/ read/ play and go out every day , meet friends at the park etc it’s ideal for your child. It’s far better for a 2 year old to be at home with a loving and attentive mommy then to be in a playgroup at that age.
Good luck!
