Re: How often do you play with your children?

DD goes to preschool 5 days a week for 3.5 hours and instead of focusing my time on him, I use it to clean or run errands since it's easier to do with 1 than with 2. DS likes to play by himself but he loves it when I read to him.
you and i sound a lot a like.. when I do sit down to play with them I end up doing my own thing.. Ie playdough or coloring my own pic..

I don't think you should feel guilty though do the best you can with what you have.. that's why we were each made differently! My oldest is SO creative and I'm so proud of her for it.. I don't know if she ever wants me to play with her she doesn't usually ask..
