Saturday night I spontaneously decided to take my older guy Jack (almost 4) on a date. We went to watch a local ice show that one of his gal pals was in (so cute)!
Since his brother came along 2 years ago, they've pretty much been a package deal :-) In the beginning I made an effort to do special outings with Jack to make sure he didn't feel lost or replaced, but since then I've admittedly got out of that habit. I'm usually the crazy lady that always has two kids in tow:-) When Jack's at school Calvin gets one-on-one time with me, and I hadn't really thought about the fact that Jack doesn't get that. Our date was so fun and much needed. While my boys love having a brother and get so much out of it and their time together, this was a great reminder of how important one-on-one time is for both of us. Adding this to my list!
