Re: SAHPs: How much do you play with your kids?
This has been a huge issue on my mind. We live with my Inlaws right now. My MIL constantly says we don't play enough with my son. I spend all day with him. I don't vacuum, do laundry, clean, go on the computer, put away dishes, or do ANYTHING when my kids are awake. I literally sit there on the floor and bounce back and forth from one to the other withing with my son and daughter. One thing I DO need to start now is reading to them, but my son will not stay still for it so I guess I will read to my daughter and maybe he will decide to come over and listen. Besides that, I am right there with them every second of the time they are awake. I am exhausted at the end of the day. I can't get anything done! When we moved in my son was 6 months old and could self entertain for awaile, now he is almost 16 months old and screams for attention every second of the day. It is not possible to give him anymore of my attention than I'm already giving him. I'm losing my mind.
