5 signs you’re a bored stay-at-home mom

  1. Barbie cut 'n style princess doll

    Playing with Barbie’s hair is fun – even for bored stay-at-home moms. (

    You’ve washed, dried and folded every item of clothing in the house – even the Build-A-Bear’s couture.

  2. Your husband asks if you need some fresh air because, once again, you have regaled him with tales about who’s doing what on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
  3. You’re more excited about Pee Wee cheer practice than your daughters are because you finally get to wear those cute little capris you found on sale at Target – rather than your ratty, knock-around-the-house sweats.
  4. You’ve changed hairstyles several times today – not yours, but Barbie’s.
  5. You’re actually considering having another baby, but only because your five children – the youngest of whom is potty-training and the oldest of whom is training for his driver’s permit – don’t keep you busy enough.
