I don't know if this is a stupid question or not..but how do I play with my 14 mo daughter?? Before her I never really did much with kids or around kids this age, so I'm dumbfounded. I mean, she has WAY more toys than i think she needs and we play with them a little as long as she's interested. I read to her daily but she doesn't sit too long, so normally that lasts for 5 min or so lol If I'm cooking or doing something in the kitchen, I will give her spoons, spatulas etc to play with. We live in a townhome and there's not really much outdoor space for her to play. There's a park within walking distance, but when we go I feel like I'm doing nothing but chasing her the entire time. I will put her in the Ergo or stroller for a walk, but normally she wants out within a short period of time. I let her explore as much as she wants as long as I am right there, but I want to start doing more interactive playing with her. I kind of feel bad bc I feel like a mother should know and have things to do with her child, but it just seems at this age her attention span is so short that she just wants to go, go, go! Thanks for any much needed advice!
