There's a lot of things about motherhood that I love, like reading books, going to the park, going out for ice cream, play dates, puzzles, board games, movie night, snuggles, arts and crafts...a ton of things. But there's one thing I really hate to do and that's imaginative play.

I love that Isabella has such a great imagination and I love that she uses that imagination to create magical worlds full of dragons and princesses and talking snowmen. I love that loves to play school or doctor or chef. But I don't love to play those games with her.
Call me what you will, judge me if you must but I can never keep up with the constant rule changing. I never do it right and she inevitably gets pissed off at me. "Mommy you're not a dragon anymore now you're an evil queen."
Also, I always have to be the douche bag character. I never get to be someone good or normal because she wants all of those roles. And sometimes I just don't feel like crawling on the floor pretending to be a puppy. My knees hurt and my back hurts.
So what's your take on this? Am I the worlds worst mother or am I in good company?
