I do. I would rather take them to the park, play centre, play outside, go shopping or push them on the swing! I like reading to them, wrestling around in the floor/bed, but actual 1-1 playing (shops, cars, leggo etc) bores me to bits.
Im actually very happy when I see them playing happily on their own!

*Spin off* of 'confessions spin off'. Do you find playing with your kids boring?

Hell yes! I have no imagination (seriously!), the kids don't play nice together and DD still a bit young for board games. They fight they argue, at my wits end with them both at the moment.

Yeah, same. It's when I start to dream of vodka - does that make me a bad parent and an alcoholic?
I find it interesting actually - some people just love that stuff. I've a friend - she bakes lovely treats for her 5 kids, they never watch tv, she is always taking them on adventures by herself to see interesting things, she is always playing dress ups and playdoh etc.
It just isn't me. I like having a game of kick around and things like that, but sitting down to playdoh and things like that - ughhhh!

TBH, yes! I do try to....sometimes....I'm happy to do other activities with him though. He often forces me to reenact Pokemon battles or pretend to be darth vader with him, I'll play along for a short while, but it does get repetitive very quickly! I sometimes feel guilty about him being an only child and having noone to play with though, it must get incredibly boring at times.

I was one of the posters that said it was boring. I don'tmind reading, puzzles etc but I have NO imagination when it comes to playing. I'm feeling relieved that I'm not the only one!

Most of the time yes. I actually find when he takes to long to do a puzzle or does something wrong a little frustrating

I'll be honest... Yes. Especially playing cars!!! Which is the current favourite. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE doing stuff with them and having our little adventures, but i'm just not big into the imaginative play- i'd rather just watch that.

When I had DS back in 1999, there were no websites like this around (I didn't even have a computer back then!) so I had no idea that it was a common complaint. I spent so many years feeling sooooo guilty. I hated the fact that I found playing with Thomas The Tank Engine trains so painfully dull. But i still sat there and played, going quietly insane.
It's such a relief, even all these years later, to know that I'm not the only one!
