It is horrible when illness prevents us from going to Playcentre.
This week, due to a very minor illness, we stayed home alone for two days. I was going out of my mind.
Lately, when I am playing with the child (and his Transformers), I get
I want to tidy up, or have a cup of coffee, or
If I try to do something else, the child orders me to PLAY!
I feel like a TV. The child wants me to entertain him. ALL DAY.
A friend said I just need to give the child five minutes. Then I will get an hour of alone time.
But if I give the child five minutes, he wants another hour.
I must be doing it wrong.
