I actually loathe it. There are times when I have agree to play a certain game with her and can barely contain my joy when something happens that means we cannot do it.
I am not a social person anyway, and noisy, rowdy people bother me unless I'm drunk. Maybe I should get drunk and then I'd like playing with her more? She get too loud and obnoxious when we play and it takes all my strength to not tell her off for it. She just gets too into it, as lots of kids do, but I cannot stand it. I suck at it.
I think we'll interact better when she's passed the "play" stage. It's coming... I think a year or two and there'll no longer be playing.
I feel really bad because I managed it with a TODDLER and BABY just fine. Perhaps because they don't talk ENDLESSLY and expect replies to every mundane thing they say. "Yep, cool," doesn't cut it anymore. I have to give a more detailed reply to her chatter and it's draining. That, combined with how boring actually playing is... sometimes I feel like sticking pins in my eyeballs would be less painful.

Yes, I often will ask DS if we can read books instead. I like playdough and stuff, but playing shops, cars, etc, is a bit boring.

Yay Glad to hear I'm not the only.
I too like puzzles, even playing catch with the soft ball inside. But anything that requires imagination is not fun!
Ds is turning 4, so it's so nice to see him happily playing on his own and using his own imagination!
I was told that in the 'old' days, housewives didn't haw much time to 1-1 play with young ones as they were so busy washing clothes with their hands and shelling peas. Toddlers were in play pens or kept themselves busy.

Yes, I do.
I can do it for 5-10 minutes but I get bored.
I would much rather run around with them at the park!

God yes. Deadly boring.
My DD is into "the Great Australian Bake Off" and she makes me play it with her using playdoh to make our cakes and pies and slices. I have to then be the judge and decide who has the best cake based on taste and how nice it looks (it looks foul by the way as she has mixed about 5 colours together to form a cacky brown colour). Boring....but she loves it. Funny story though, DH turned the oven on the other night to heat it up and a few minutes later there was a strange smell, turns out we had left some of our playdoh concoctions from a few days before in the oven.
Playing with Barbies...boring.
Play daycare - I pretend I am the cleaner and I clean the house while the kids play around me.

Mmm yeah I guess but I love playing tea party's, Duplo, building cubby houses with her. Mostly I just enjoy watching the joy on her adorable face. Yeah it gets boring after a while but I don't hate it

Yeah, I really don't like it.
I force myself to do it for 30 mins in the morning and 30 mins in the afternoon, and make sure I really engage with him. I think this stems from guilt that he is an only child when he is such a social boy.
