Re: SAHPs: How much do you play with your kids?
My five year old is a child that needs constant attention. If by the off chance he is actually playing by himself, he needs me there to respond to his every action "mommy, look the guy did this" then "mommy, look now he's up here" then "mommy, see now he's looking for this." So I feel like I spend all day interacting with him when he's home and not at preschool. My other two are able to play by themselves. I try to spend several quality play-times with them through-out the day and the rest of the time try and get stuff done. Oh and we try to do one art/craft before lunch.
