Time With The Second

It is so rare for me to get alone time with JR, especially now that I am watching Emily through the week.

Last week though, Emily got picked up early and Little Dude went to the neighbors to play Star Wars, and so it was just me and JR.

We, of course, had to celebrate with some ice cream and a few stories. Then we ran around outside and found some earth worms.

I feel so guilty all the time that I don't have more one on one time with JR, and can't do all the activities with him that I did with Little Dude-like mom and me swimming or mommy and me yoga-things that are geared for one parent and one child.

I'm going to do my best to take advantage of any moments I do get with just JR and make sure he gets to enjoy just having me all to himself for a bit, doing whatever he wants.

That's such a good idea to make special time for the little one! I did a lot of those 'mommy and me' activities with my oldest when she was an only child, and I still try and make some time occasionally for an outing for just the two of us (and maybe a baby, too!). But my youngest ones don't know the meaning of the words "alone time with mom", I'm sure. :/

how wonderful you got to spend some time with him! and I often feel that guilt as well.
