What do YOU do all day? - Page 2

He can only have a bath maybe twice a week, otherwise his skin seems to get itchy (even without soap) -- otherwise that would definitely be part of every day!

We are part of a mom's group & do some really fun & unique stuff with them, so we get our 'adventures' plus try to create our own too. I guess I wish we could just constantly have adventures!! And never have to be home. And never have to play. smile.gif I'm so glad I'm not the only one who hates playing. I love spending time with DS, just not actually playing.

crunchy_mommy, I felt like this with just one child. When it was just me and DS, I never wanted to play and wanted to be out going and doing all the time. when my second came along, I realized I can't get anything done when I'm not home doing stuff! So, it forced me to stay home and get creative with coming up with things for DS to do on his own. follow me on pinterest, if you're on there. I have a ton of ideas! oh, and I still don't like playing with him, so I try really hard to come up with stuff he can do and wants to do on his own. It's hard, I know! my name is Stacey Bone, when you search on pinterest, it's a picture of me when I'm nine, with a pink shirt on and blonde short hair :)

LOL I got so distracted by your grain-free recipes on pinterest that I haven't gotten to anything else yet! I am a pinterest addict & it's definitely helping me find things to do with DS. I guess I just have to get better about doing them daily. Unfortunately he will not do things on his own, no matter how cool or interesting or novel -- he really has a hard time with independence, even on playdates he still sits in my lap the whole time, he has severe anxiety I guess. But at least if I can find activities I'll enjoy doing with him, it will be easier...

I've been really sick the last 2 days and one thing I realized is, I definitely need to get better at just sitting there. I always feel like I need to be DOING something but when I was sick I could hardly move or talk and I think I need to spend more time just relaxing, watching DS, interacting with him however I can, etc.
