As my kids put it in their own words, “we don’t play with you because we don’t like the things you want to do”. At the moment that consists of anything to do with My Little Pony. Seeing an article on here about friendship bracelets, I thought what a great idea to do something with the girls 5 and 8. They seemed excited by the idea but as soon as I sat down to make them they were no where to be seen.
Sadly they’d rather spend time playing the xbox than spend time with their sad old mum. I suppose it’s my fault for being the parent that’s never there. Full time study has kept me busy. They are used to amusing themselves while mummy does homework. Now as hard as I try they just aren’t interested in spending time with me. I try to make them yummy things and involve them in the cooking but nothing seems to get through to them. I’m lucky if I get an occasional hug or even a hello when the eldest gets home from school. I’m trying to find ways to spend more quality time with them, but we’re just finding it hard to reconnect after I’ve been partly absent for so long.
