Argh! That statement drives me crazy!
There is a houseful of toys and games and music and books.
How can you be bored?
I started to get really irritated, but then I realized something (which I think means I'm growing up). It is a statement for attention. Instead of saying, "Mom, quit doing homework, quit working on lesson plans, quit doing _______ (one of the many things a mom spends her time doing), I would like her to say, "Mom, spend time with me." But, sadly, she is 6... I have to be the mature one to recognize and respond.
One of my 2010 goals is to live a more balanced life.
So, step 1 -- spend time with baby girl!
