My dd is 13mo.
I use to work full time, and now I'm a SAHM.
I want us to "do things together" as in the past I would work all the time and not spend much time with her, So now with me being at home with her all day every day I'm struggling to find activities to do with her. She is also an only child.
Things we have tried so far and have failed are
Coloring, giving her pencils ect to draw with but she seems more interested in trying to eat them rather than draw...
Filling a little pool with water, she didn't like that to much and seemed quite frightened of the water :-/
Reading books together, this lasts for about a minute before she decides she has had enough and goes and does her own thing...
Some one gave us stickers for her first birthday and I tried showing her she could stick them onto things which she loves but then go frustrated that she couldn't pull the stickers back off lol.
She has a very short attention span, and would rather do her own thing... Which makes me feel sad because I'm feeling guilty that we didn't bond enough when she was younger.
I really want to be a "fun" mum, and would really love to be able to do things with her
