    Yup. DS says 'Come on Mummy, let's play engines!!!' like its the most exciting thing in the world. I can only be Percy, never Thomas or any other character. I friggen hate Percy. I try hard to put on Percy's voice and come up with funny train scenarios but my interest usually fizzles out after about 5 minutes. Luckily I find that if I just get DS started with it then he'll keep playing it on his own once I slowly sneak away...

    Yeah I'm not keen on playing with. I like activities, like baking or occasionally crafting (though if I do craft I end up taking over it whoops) I'd prefer to take them out to the park to play. Also I find with two they play so much better together if I stay out of it, if I get involved then they both try to play with me and they get narky at each other.

    I've fallen asleep face down on the car mat playing cars with jasper. That's how much fun it is.

    Yeah I don't play with them as such but I do love going on outings with them and just hanging out with them. My oldest who is nearly 7 loves doing arts and crafts and I am so not into that kind of stuff. But I make sure she has the materials to indulge in her hobbies and I always love receiving her creations as gifts.

    Imaginative play yep for sure, I'm terrible at it Board games, crafts, play doh etc. is fine (cant wait till the kids are old enough for that type of stuff ). At least my lot will be pretty close in age so they can imaginative play together

    I'm not into the imaginative play much either. I do enjoy doing craft and playing games/puzzles with DD. Thankfully DD doesn't seem to like the imaginative play stuff very much either. Or maybe she just gets sick of me not playing so doesn't ask any more. I really should try harder.

    Yes. DH is the fun, playful parent, he loves it. I hate it, so I'm the boring responsible mean parent

    I love going on outings etc with them and general hanging out. But yeah, play I hate.

    That's what I worry about! I don't have much imagination and I reckon I'll hate it!

    I don't mind the rest - but Barbies make me shudder. I'm not allowed to play the way I want "no mum - this is the imaginary car over here!" or "that's not her shoes, these are her shoes". Give me strength. She's an only child so I do believe it's up to me to be her playmate, but anything but Barbies!
