Date night

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love having two kids. I love having brothers, even though Beckett doesn't really "play" with him yet, they love being together. Carson makes Beckett laugh, and Beckett just grins from ear to ear as soon as he catches a glimpse of Carson. I love chaos - so getting both of them their breakfasts, singing crazy songs, cleaning up messes, playing games, jumping on the bed... you name it and we do it. Together.

But, once in a while I crave time with just one of them. Tonight it was Carson night. After I put Beckett to bed, Carson and I ran out of the house to the car and went swimming. We had such a blast. I concentrated 100% on him. We talked, we laughed, we told stories, we sang to the music, we jumped in puddles, we swam, we went down the slide, we played catch, we swirled in circles. It was so nice to be just the two of us.

Ah! That rocks. I've tried to do this a bit with Carter but would like to do more. I have such amazing memories of things we do just the two of you! You are a great mama!

Sounds great! And I think it's important to do one on one stuff with your kids sometimes and try to make sure I do special things with just my older son sometimes. Eventually when the twins are older I'll do it with them to. For now they get their special one on one time in the middle of the night when they keep waking up. har ;)
