I bet you can’t guess what we like to do in the summer time! The big kids had piano lessons at the same time this week, so Max and I snuck out for an ice cream date all by ourselves. Eden and I took a similar opportunity last week. I love to spend some time just one-on-one with my kids. They are such unique people, and growing up so fast! Although I love watching them interact with each other, I love being with each of them individually even more. The conversations we have are valuable, and the silences are priceless.
In our family, we call it a date, and Shandy and I each plan one specific time each month to take one of the kids out, but these stolen moments are nearly sweeter. Do you plan or steal “alone time” with your kids? What do you like to do during those times? Please leave me a comment.
