Why It’s OK To Be A Boring Mom

Video taken from the channel: Bonnie Wiscombe


As a new mom, it’s normal to feel a rollercoaster of emotions, from joy to sorrow to everything in between. But there’s one common new-mom feeling that doesn’t often get addressed: boredom. The fact is, even though your baby requires a lot of energy and attention, the tasks of infant care are pretty basic (at least in the beginning). People’s stories feel magical.

And even the most astute human being — knowing those situations are staged, best-of-the-best moments — can be made to feel. Never forget, even in the boring times, in the times you are in yoga pants covered in baby food, dying for a morning off to sleep, how valuable your role as a mom is. It is worth it, and it gets easier.

These are the good times, and one day you will miss them. You WILL get through it even if it doesn’t feel like it.No first-time mom knows what she is doing. Don’t feel bad! Ask for advice wherever you can, but only apply the advice that feels right to you!!

Placenta Encapsulation is highly recommended! It prevented the baby blues for me, a life saver. 50 things every tired new mom needs to hear!

The study discovered that 28 percent of stay-at-home moms reported depression a lot of the day when asked how they were feeling the day before, but only 17 percent of employed moms did. Of the group, 26 percent of SAHMs said they experienced depression vs. just 16 percent of working moms. Although mood swings are common in pregnancy (especially among women who suffer from PMS), feeling chronically bored and listless could be a symptom of depression.

Postpartum depression gets more media attention, but at least 10 percent of women have bouts of depression during pregnancy. Image caption Dr Belton said children needed time to stand and stare. Children should be allowed to get bored so they can develop their innate ability to be creative, an education expert says. Instead of thinking of boredom as a waste of time, try to look at it as a necessary rest for your brain that can leave your mind feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Giving your mind a break from the constant stimulation of technology allows it to better take in new things and have new.

4. I don’t want my mom to be a part of my life anymore because she is a very toxic person who only looks to push your buttons. “If your mom is a toxic person, of course it’s okay. Having a narcissistic mom myself, I can understand where you’re coming from. I’m bored at work.

I’m bored to tears. I’m bored to death. Do you find yourself saying any of the above? If so, you’ve reached the right website.

  • Hi, there! I have one little girl, 19 mo. old, and one on the way due in July. I’m a stay-at-home mom and these past few days I’ve really felt this “I’m a boring mom!” I think it’s not only that I’m not always fun to play with but that I actually feel bored being a mom that sounds awful but…doing a lot of the mom stuff: cleaning, cooking, reading the same baby books over and over, endless diaper changes, etc. Do you have any suggestions on how to not feel/be bored while doing the daily/mundane tasks of motherhood? People have told me it gets better as they get older/you have more children…but is there anything I can do right now that you’d suggest?

  • This is so nice to hear because it supports my opinion on how to raise kids! I have two kids, age 3 and 16 months and number three is on its way. I remember thinking about how I am such a bad mom for not spending all day playing with my kids like so many other moms seem to. But now I think about it differently whenever I look at them and seeing them play so independently. My 3 year old also has quite the imagination, making items around the house into toys that I wouldn’t even think of. And to be honest, I just don’t know how to play like a toddler. I go to a breakfast/playgroup place with them once a week because I love talking to other parents and the kids love it there too. But I definitely am not going on outings every day! And just like you said, I spend some one on one time with them mostly every day. Our son doesn’t nap anymore, so his sister’s nap is a good time for that. But sometimes I am too tired for that now that I am pregnant and I just want to nap/rest a little.
    I love reading about big families like yours and am looking forward to having a bunch of homeschooled kids in the future even though I am also a little bit afraid of it and its challenges.

  • Why do ppl even care about what she does its her life not urs so leave her be she is 20 years old and all the kardashians at least have hired one nanny so why are u throwing shade on kylie.

  • I’m really good at taking my kids on outings but besides that I’m a boring mom. I think if I do fun things away from home where there’s nothing to distract me then they can do all their own playing and imagining on their own at home.

  • When I can I love to do art either drawing or crafts, I sing alot, I listen to relaxing lofi music and my newest thing is to go out front at night and practice my nunchucks. Yes I know I’m weird.

  • You instantly made me feel better when you said it gets easier when your kids are older I have a 2-year-old and a 2-month-old and am feeling the mom burnout hard… I can relate so hard when you say everyday feels like groundhog’s Day. Thank you for all the tips and knowledge that it does get easier.

  • Hi Meg. I’m a stay at home mom too. I’m lonely. My daughter is 3. I have no mom friends. Im kind of a young mom. I’m 23. I have my husband but he has a hobby that he has lots of friends in. He goes off and does his own thing a lot. I’m happy for him when he does but I wish I had some friends too. It makes me sad because I live in a small town. & there is a clique of girls who are besties and always doing fun stuff but none of them have kids so I don’t fit in and it’s made known. My husband does help a lot. He thinks he is though. I do appreciate him but I do struggle. I’m feeling very down. I like listening to your videos because it makes me feel like a girlfriend is talkin to me.

  • The every day dishes, laundry and cleaning up toys is enough to make a person crazy…your right just getting out of the house and doing something different helps so much.
