Boy, can I ever relate to this week's episode of CafeMom Studios' Coffee Shop Confessions: "I Use Housework to Avoid Playing With My Child." Well, I can sort of relate. See, the anonymous mom in the video has a secret -- she'd rather dust or do dishes than sit down on the floor with her toy car-obsessed son making "vroom, vroom" noises.
I avoid housework at all costs and my kids are both pretty much past the point of making "vroom, vroom" noises, but I still get what this gal is going through. I love my kids more than anything ... still, playing with toys feels and has always felt like a form of torture to me. Even growing up. (Yes, I was an odd child, but that's not the point.) Having my fabulous children did not change my stripes.
So what's a non-playful mom to do? In my opinion, Andrew Shue had the best, most practical advice on the subject ...
