  1. Firstly, you should tell your bishop. My brother in law had a similar situation he had a child when he was disinterested in the church and he did have sporadic interactions with his daughter but nothing stable and he wasn't really involved in her life. I don't think his bishop pushed him to see his child more, but as the gospel became more important to my brother in law, he felt he needed to share it with his daughter and obviously the only way he could do that was by building a relationship with her. I think you will find it very natural to want to be involved in your son's life more as you grow in the gospel.
  2. I always wanted to be a mom, but I suppose I never really thought about what we would do together. I kind of assumed he would just tag along with me whilst I lived life.
  3. I know that's why I wanted to take some time off but I can't think of anything I want to do with my son.
  4. What can I do with my son that we can enjoy and I don't need to socialise. It isn't that I don't want to socialise but I would like to spend time with just my son for now .
  5. why do you think I didn't have fun as a child ? It may or may not be true.
  6. I'm not a very sociable person and I hate social interactions with people I have nothing in common with apart from we both have a child.
  7. Everything is boring. Reading with him, watching cartoons with him, drawing with him, playing with Duplo etc. I don't understand it because I used to love reading to him when I got home from work, it was the perfect way for me to unwind and feel like a good mom but now I just find it so mind numbing. I was so excited to care for him all the time but it isn't going the way I thought it would.
  8. I should have said work and family were my life
  9. No I don't treat my son like a chore, I didn't need to take time off work to care for him but I wanted to. I just didn't imagine caring for him full time could be so boring
  10. I don't want to take him where there are lots of children running around, but his grandma takes him to some kind of toddler group on Tuesdays so I'm sure he is learning there.
  11. My husband owns his own business. This would be really good advice if I was planning to be a stay at home mom long term but I will be back at work in 5 months.
  12. I don't know my job was my life. I would probably go back to school and retrain in a different field of law.
  13. The thing is I am so bored I have nothing interesting to do except for caring for my son which isn't very interesting most of the time. I will leave the wrestling to my husband but I will try gardening with him.
  14. I'm not going to stay and plays and activities where there are other children around. I can't take him to the playground because I am terrified of dogs.
  15. That is pretty much what I have been doing with him but I am so bored. I've never had such mind numbing days in my life before.
