I went on a date with little girl a few weekends ago. I am always reminded how sweet the one on one time can be. Since we've been homeschooling I haven't really done many "dates" with the kids this year. I am with them ALL. THE. TIME. Planning additional time one on one just isn't on my radar - but it really is good for all parties involved.
I got tickets for us to see Disney on Ice and she picked the restaurant for dinner. Pho, of course - it's one of her favs. SO good too!
Bethany is so kind and generous, almost always thinking about others. Almost to a fault sometimes - giving up the last cookie when you know she really wanted it, etc. It was fun getting to spoil her and letting her pick what SHE wanted instead of what she thought someone else wanted:
My sis had texted something snarky about me crying at the show and I thought it was funny but ridiculous. Until I walked in hand in hand with this princess and was overwhelmed at how darn lucky I am in this life. I may have got chocked up a few times . . . but not exactly because of the great skating performance. Sometimes I am just so pointedly reminded of how much my cup runneth over . . . and then my body follows suit and runs amuck with tears! So glad I took time out to have a date with this little lady . . . now I need to get going on time with the boys too!
