Mom Confessions: I Don't Want to Play
It's time for a Mom Confession -- because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.
This Week's Confession:
I hate to play. I have no problem sitting and talking to my son while he is playing. But I can't stand getting down on the floor and rolling trucks and trains around making noises. I'm sure it will be the same when my daughter is old enough to play dolls and have tea parties. I love spending time with my kids, but playing is not fun for me. -- anonymous

What activity does your toddler repeatedly ask you to play with her that you absolutely dread? Do you make up excuses to play a different game or do you suck it up?
We all have secrets and opinions -- so thanks to this brave mom for sharing her honest thoughts, and thank you for keeping this conversation non-judgemental!
