Lately though I’ve realized that because of the age difference with all three of my kids, someone is always left out or doesn’t feel like it was time well spent. And truth be told that person is always my oldest one – Renee.
So today with Tanysha away at a birthday party/play date and Joshua just happening to nap around the time the closest mall to us opened, I decided “spontaneously” to take Renee out for lunch and do something special and grown up together.
It was great. just to be with her and to be able to talk with no interruptions from a 5 year old who feels the need to fight for air time, and well with Joshua who’s age demands my total attention.
It was a lovely day. window shopping and doing some other stuff. Nothing beats one on one time with those you love.
How about you – do you have special days with all your children at the same time or do you take them out individually?
