Yep, I totally get it. I have a 9yo and having to switch between parent and "friend/sibling" is hard work. Never thought I'd be riding a bike at 30, or swinging off a rope swing into a river at 30- but here you go.
I have no words of wisdom- just complete understanding.

Sorry if its been asked, but how old is your LO?
I totally get what you mean being a 'one man band'!
I have a 5 year old little girl who is too smart for her own good & STILL wants me to play with her 24/7. It takes time to find activities that they like, that keep them amused for longer then 5 seconds, that dont cause melt downs because they're beyond their capibilities.
Things DD liked;
*Water paint books
*A cup of water & a paint brush to 'paint' the porch
*hi-5, dora (really any kids) dvd
*Gardening (kids shovel to dig in the dirt & a watering can)
*sprinkler (or just water dripping from the tap with beach toys)
*arts & crafts
Thankfully she's at an age where she's learning to 'pack away' so I can stall her with this between activities ("you need to pack this up first before we get that out" buys me an extra 5 minutes)
