I wish that happened! I am still waiting for my 5.5 year old to play independently. But the few moments he does and if my baby is asleep I will cook, tidy, check emails etc. But it's so rare I don't even know!

I find as soon as I occupy myself my DD gets bored and finds me! When she really gets into something she is will play and wont appear again for a good 1hr 30mins so I'm cleaning doing general housework or just Googling. I'm looking forward to the summer when I can enjoy sitting outside and catching some rays while she plays in her playhouse. x

MIne are pretty good at playing independently or with each other. I cook, clean up, watch a few shows that I DVR'd, read a book, play on my phone, work on the garden outside during the summer. Honestly, I rarely play directly with them anymore in the house unless we are playing board games. I spend time with them at breakfast, dinner, reading bedtime books, sometimes we watch a kids movie together, etc, but they are old enough now that they rarely ask me to play toys with them.
