Monday Blues

As the weekend comes to an end, I can't help feeling even as a Stay At Home Parent, that I get Monday blues too. After being a whole two days with my oldest and husband, Monday comes and we revert back to the same 'ol same 'ol alone with a baby. Does anyone else get like this?! #mondayblues

    I'm a stay at home mom as well! Even with my husband's rotating schedule, his oldest (previous marriage) being in and out at random, and his youngest usually at her mom's on the weekends, I still feel blah on Mondays! I don't know what it is. I think it's just so engraned in my brain from childhood that Mondays are the worst that it just stayed with me. I feel more like Garfield the older I get! Lol!

    Yes!! I stay home during the day and work late afternoon to nights. Today was so bad I left work early.

    I do. We have three under four and it’s just so much easier with my husband around to help parent. We recently moved so I have zero friends, and it seems so much harder to meet people when you have kids.

    It sucks, but what can you do except drink a your coffee, fix that invisible crown and get to work. That or take a nap with your child.

    I would definitely agree. It’s something I never really thought of until now but totally does happen. It’s my most exhausting day too. Keeping a teething toddler happy all day and trying to be productive is hard work!

    I was just thinking about how lately I've just been feeling run down on Mondays. Mondays tend to be slower in terms of activities but I think we both miss the extra company of dad and friends/family we see over the weekends.

    YES! Omg, I cried sometime too. It’s soo lonely 😔 and sad. Idk what to do with my 1 y old. I tried going to the pool or the clubhouse to meet other moms, but it’s not easy. I’m so quiet that idk what to talk about. I tried to make friend with my 4y old friend’s moms, but I’m a tiny and young looking so when we have a play date is like they are babysitting 3 kids. It’s sad... my son couldn’t have any play dates cuz of me. 😓 ik how you feel. I hate Monday!!!

    Yes, Monday’s I drop my son off at daycare at 8AM to go to work and then my mom picks him up at 5 and I don’t get to see him until I get home from class at 8PM. 12 whole hours away from this boy bums me out.

    Yes. I get bad anxiety on Sundays particularly in the evening. I love and treasure our time together on weekends. I wish we had more days together. I try to break up the routine by continuing to do fun activities with baby even though it's without my husband. Baby needs that for his own wellbeing and it's fun for both of us! It's harder during the week without help from husband but also rewarding knowing you can get everything necessary done!

    Absolutely! I started experiencing anxiety and guilt last week as it’s time to go to work. I actually took off of work to spend time with my baby..I really hope it’s just a phase

    Yes. I work and I get really bad anxiety every Sunday night about going back to work on Monday. The weekends always go way too fast. Sunday nights I never sleep well so then I end up feeling even worse on Monday. It’s an endless cycle.

    My hubby works weekends and has two days off during the week. The best days! Friday’s and the weekend is always hard for me. I’m able to do stuff but he has to go to work

    Wow, I thought I was the only one feeling this way. Unfortunately for me it also happens on Fridays because he works on the weekends and so it’s a constant reminder that I’m alone trying to entertain the kids.

    I try to have breakfast with my friends, they all love seeing my girl and help me feeding her. That gives me a little sense of “me” time lol

    I was just thinking about this today. I’m the one that goes to work but I told my husband when I got home I miss you and the baby on Monday’s because I just spent the weekend with you guys.
