I love that I am not a single mom. That I have someone to share this crazy parenting gig with. Someone who loves my boys just as much as I do.
But, there’s something to be said for spending a little quality time with those same boys. When they have only me to turn to, only me to play with.
It gives me the opportunity to be the “cool” mom. To do special things with them that we likely wouldn’t do with 2 parents around because, somehow, errands always take over.
Over time the boys and I have:
Camped out in the backyard
Tripped it to the zoo in February
Gone on bike rides or hikes
Gone to the cabin – just the 3 of us
My honey has enjoyed her time alone with them too doing similar things.
Today I got to pick Keegan up from school. I got to be home to get Eli off the bus. I got to treat them to a special snack before Karate. I got to enjoy their Karate lesson all by myself. I got to treat them to a kid’s meal on the way home. I snuggled with them on the couch and watched Sonic with them.
It was an awesome afternoon.
I’m looking forward to spring break and spending time with just the 2 of them. I love, so much, the person I am when I’m with them.
I love this life I’ve been given!
