I swear, some days I just need a break. If I sit down for 5 minutes to catch up here or nurse the baby, my toddler and preschooler are all over me like white on rice. They have an abundance of toys, craft supplies, etc. at their disposal and they are not lacking in attention so I just don't get it.
I remember playing alone a lot as a young kid with dolls and Barbies and using my imagination - is this not something that comes innately? I play with them and their toys, but I can't play all day. I do have housework and other responsibilities and I can't just plop them in front of a TV screen all day to get stuff done. Just frustrated today, I guess. Uff.
