How many of you moms out there have kids who want to play with you… all day?! Don’t get me wrong, I understand the whole, “enjoy it while they’re young” business, and “they grow up so fast” thing, and I seriously do love playing with my kids! Seeing your own child grow and learn and having them make you laugh and think and grow yourself, is the absolute most rewarding thing in the entire world.
But lately my little three-year-old has started insisting that I play with him all day long for every second of the day. Even after we just got back from a fun outing together, or I’ve been playing with him for an hour, or there’s a movie on the TV, I can’t shake him!!
I guess what I’m getting at is that I am feeling so guilty during the times that I have to do the dishes, fold laundry, make dinner, or simply just sit and take a breath because he’s at my side with those big, blue eyes saying, “mom, I wan play wif you” or recently he’s switched it up and asks, “mom you wan’ play wih me?” but the best one is when he gives me a hug and says, “mom you cute” just because he knows I can’t resist it.
Do any of you have this same problem?
Do you ever feel mom guilt?
Sometimes I feel like a bad mom because I’m just all played out.
How much time do you spend playing with your little ones?
Please comment and let me know what you think!
P.S. Sorry this was kind of a downer post, but my hope is that you can come to my blog and know that I am being honest and real with you.
