Yesterday I had a date with a boy..... he's about 4 feet tall, brown hair, and has the cutest dimples you Although we try to spend as much time as a family as we can, it is hard to balance attention between a preschooler and a one and a half year old. I try to take the kids on lots of outings (trips to the park, science museum, etc), but spend a lot of the time there chasing Phoebe while Finn has to entertain himself. Phoebe is at that stage where she is quite reckless but also just so cute and funny that she often gets a lot of attention despite whether she is acting crazy or not.
So recently, my husband and I decided that we needed to try and spend some time one-on-one with the kids. Give Finn a chance to do his thing without worrying about what Phoebe is doing, and to have some time where he is, once again, the center of our attention.
So yesterday, I took Finn on a date. We headed out for a quick lunch and then went to a paint-your-own pottery place where he chose a dinosaur and a hedgehog for us to paint as a team. Then, despite the pouring rain, we went out for ice cream (what date would be complete without ice cream!?!) and finished up by heading to our favorite yarn store so he could pick out yarn for the mittens I will knit him this winter.
We had a great time and I could tell Finn was happy to have a few hours that were just for him. I hope to make this a regular thing.
