The world of play day post got me thinking about this. When I was growing up I do not remember my parents playing with us at all. I know they took us on vacations to fun places like Disneyland and other amusement park etc. I remember playing catch with my dad when I joined a softball team but I think we only did that once. I had a sister so I usually just played with her and then when I got older I played outside with other neighborhood kids. What about only children who do not have siblings do you feel obligated to play with them? For those that say they are not responsible for entertaining their children do you play with them ever?
Personally I love being around my daughter. I may not always want to play kid games but I always like hanging out with her. My issue is time. I am a working single mom so I spend most of my free time doing dishes and laundry and cleaning and shopping so playing is usually at the lower end of the priorities but I do try to get some play time in with her. I am just curious to hear others opinions of this.
