I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I have a 2, almost 3 year old who is very clingy/ needy. all day every day is all about her. I've had enough and I need a break now. She refuses to play unless I'm playing. I'm going to go crazy. She a big helper with chores, we go to the park, we go for walks, I live everyday with her involved in everything. She wears me out so much that when she takes her nap I have to also. It's all just too much. Is there any tricks to get her to play by herself?

I am a stay at home mom, my daughter is 27 months, and I'm 30 weeks pregnant. I feel your pain!!! I have tried to find things that she can play with 'near me'. I sit on the couch and she will bring her toys on the couch too. She has a kids table and chair we have set up in the living room, she does play doh, drawing, plays with little people toys, etc. on the the table right next to me. It gives me a chance to relax, read, whatever....but she still feels like she is near me and has my attention. I still talk and interact, but I'm not on the floor playing all day long. It has helped.

I'm more concerned about what will happen when the new baby arrives and I can't give her all of my attention. She isn't very patient and I'm worried she is going to be jealous and have behavior issues.

Best wishes to you!!
