As a mom, what is your hobby?

My hubby keeps telling me to find a hobby. I have never really found one. So what do moms do for hobbies on their own time ?

I have a saltwater aquarium. It’s been my secret to calming on very bad days. My sanity. Yes it’s hard to start but once it’s running it’s super easy.

I don’t have me time… I work and have a kid and pets and a husband… are we supposed to have time for ourselves? If so I missed that message lmao

I too have this issue, not just a “hobby” but something that releases endorphins.

I make beautiful jewelry, body oil, anointing oil, home spray. You do what you love and are passionate about, the rest will follow.

Do you have kids, volunteer at your local animal shelter, or do puzzles at home, or if you have a car do a lift or other car ride program part time, it gets you out of the house, and a little extra income.

Take a really long really hot bath. Read, a lot. Cross stitch. Video games. I take my son hiking, but that isn’t an alone activity.

Color, make jewelry, yoga, dance, crafts, paint

Paint, read, go to a new food joint, sleep :rofl:

It should definitely be doing more of what you love. It’s a self care thing. When my kids were younger I decided to go back to school with mostly online classes. You can take all kinds of classes from art to specific types of history to science. I also volunteered at the local animal shelters. Photography is really fun to me so I’ve always dabbled with it. Refinishing furniture and the house is a big thing for me. But now, I mostly craft since I can’t do much anymore.

gardening, i absolutely love it. i have butterfly garden as well as experiments with food growing :yum: I love getting lost in my garden.

Personally I love to scrapbook!

I have an iPad so I play games and watch tv. My 3 year old is pretty good and playing alone and sometimes using me as a jungle gym lol

Why is he telling you that? Whatever you enjoy, do more of that.

My first love was always dance. I either went to classes or rehearsals, then transitioned to working on my own at a gym some nights after the kids were in bed or when they had kid care hours.

Reading. I absolutely love to read. I also play on my switch and play games on my phone.

I sew for friends and family and make some spare change doing it.

Starting crafting projects and never finishing them :rofl:

Crochet and bake/cook. Watch videos of other people baking and cooking lol.

This is so random, but I use to take photos of graves for people that live far away. It is a website called www.findagrave.com. People send request for photos for graves of people in local cemeteries. You go find the grave for them, take photos, and then you upload the photos onto the website. There are sooooo many request.
