We spent time doing things Talia really likes to do: we read tons of books, attended a basketball game, and went to the movies. THE MOVIES...now that's special to Talia. Especially since her sister wants nothing to do with the darkness or the loudness of a movie theater.
She loves everything about the movies.
The arcade...no money was spent. She doesn't know the difference yet, does she?
Waiting for the curtain to go up...
And sitting between us.
I know this picture is horrible (I'm still learning about low lighting), but just look at that face.
Look at those little arms crossed. She was eating this all up, and I was eating her up.
I am so thankful that we are able to have these one on one times with our girls.
I hope that someday they look back and remember their one on one times with Grandma and Grandpa....
And their weekend dates with us.
|Here I am pretending to get caught up in Rapunzal's hair.|
My hope is that we are filling their love tanks more often than when we can get a date weekend with them. We may have to look at date nights, date afternoons, or date hours. Sometimes life is like that, isn't it?
What I'd love to know from you today is:
1.Do you have a individual time with your kids?
2.Do you have a special name for that time?
3.What's the best time to do that? Weekly? Monthly? Quarterly?
4.What age did you start doing that?
5.What kinds of activities speak to your kids the most?
