Mommies, whats your purpose for getting on here?

So moms, whats your reasoning for getting on YA! Do you just like to ask questions Do you just like to answer questions Are you looking for someone to talk to after sitting home all day Or are you just killing time and relaxing For me I get on here because after my son goes to sleep I really have nothing better to do, and I like to have a little "me" time here n there, I also like to meet new people, alot of my friends dont have kids, so its nice to talk to people who do have kids (so feel free to e-mail me) I started getting on here because I was clueless when it came to my son, now its just pretty much for entertainment, so mommies why do you get on here? Do you really have questions, or are you just bored?

At 4 years old, children know a lot more than we thought, because they began to acquire knowledge beyond the parameter of parents and that is the reason preschool and kindergarten start around this age. If you believe in a Divine Mighty God, to answer this question is very easy. " When Daddy and Mommy loves each other, God will give us baby to care and to love, the same way He brought you to us." If you have not religious belief, the question is a little more difficult. If still you can say "When Daddy and Mommy loves each other, we want to share this love with someone very special, like with you. That is why we love you so much. Now we want you to have a chance to share this love with someone special to you, so we will have another baby soon, the same way we have you." I found this works well because you change your 4 year old's mind from focusing on the details to the topic of sharing Love with someone very special. Your child will want to prepare for this new coming siblings. Anyway, Congratulation for your news.

Honestly Im just really bored. My daughter is a sleeper, and boy do i get bored, I mean what do you do for 3 hours and the house is quiet? lol AND she sleeps 12 hours at nighttime, and that's too much sleep for me so i have free time at nighttime too. Its really just for entertainment, and also i feel like im meeting new people, and actually "talking with other moms" because when i answer or ask a question somebody talks back! lol

When I have nothing to do I come on Y!A. But I rarely come on because I'm to busy cleaning up after my kids or sleeping when I get the chance :) I first started coming on here because I had a question about my pregnancy. Then, like you, I found it entertaining and a good way too pass time so I started to come on to answer too.

He leaves me breathless
I do both ask if I Have a question and answer if I don't. I get on here or me time when my husband and son are both sleeping like now (they are both snoring in the bed it's adorable). it's just a fun way to be around other mommies when your bored.

Good question! For me it's stress relief, there is so much crummy stuff going on in my family life right now (younger sister dying of cancer, 500 mi away from all of our family, husband lost his job, going bankrupt/losing house, dealing with depression), giving answers is one thing I have some control over in my free time. My little girl is 7 months old and she is the light of our loves. She is our little sunshine, when skies are grey for SURE. I have been through a LOT, so there's a lot to share on both ends of the spectrum.

I think it's sometimes nice to know there are other woman experiencing the same things we are or have in the past. It's great to have an outlet to share information. Besides in my house everyone goes to bed really early (husband and three year old son) so I'm left to have my downtime when it wouldn't be polite to call friends...especially those with children. I work outside my home and just being able to veg out in front of the comp. is a welcome break.

I mostly answer questions. I like offering suggestions from my own experience as I know parenting isn't easy and so many of us don't live close to our own families these days. I only get a chance at night when the older two are sleeping (or I'm trying to get them to settle down in bed) and I'm trying to get the baby to sleep or waiting out that short time between fell asleep and next feeding.

Id say I get on here for both reasons, 1 because I do have questions and also because Im a stay home mom, and I so get bored. I like to see what other moms say and see what they are going through, Honestly it makes feel better to know that Im not the only one who is clueles, lonely and bored sometimes.

At first I never knew that something like this exists and couldn't get answers to many of my questions. But once I googled and landed here, I barraged all my questions. I really was asking questions at first but then slowly when my baby grew (now is 10 months) I started to answer as well. And now( ha ha) I am here to even pass time (like others). I even answered in other categories as well and picked up as best!
