I am a SAHM and I feel so guilty but I just don't like to sit in the floor and play with my DD. She is 3 and I have never been in to it. She is an only child and is use to playing by herself. I would rather be doing something else like cleaning, being on computer etc. I love her dearly and show her lots of affection! Does this make me a bad mom?Answer Question

I don't think you are a bad mom, but that is really not the priority now. What I get concerned about is when adults are not willing to enter a child's world, it may not affect them now but it can build walls later. What you see as showing her lots of affection she may not see that way. Also I think you cheat yourself out of really knowing your daughter. She will only be young once and you might find you enjoy the break from the adult world.
If I were in the same boat, I would look at why I don't like to play. Am I just too focused on my adult tasks? Too serious to lighten up and relax?
