A Little One-on-One Time

Usually being a family of 5 is fun. But for the kids, it means they get very little one-on-one time with mom or dad. So..we have started a new program to fix that. Every week it will be someone's day (K and Dad, or B and Mom, etc)..and that person will get to have one activity on their own. It may be going out for ice cream with mom, or going to the library with dad, or for a bike ride, or a museum, movie, etc. We aren't doing it for Big Man yet, as I don't think he would even get it. But we started it last week (K and Dad) and the girls love it.

K and Daddy went out to breakfast and then took her bike to get fixed. It's now me and B's turn. She wants to go out for ice cream, and maybe to the library to pick out a book or movie.

They are very excited. I am too, there are some things that are just too complicated to do with all of us, but one-on-one will be fun!

When you have more than one kid it is so nice to get one on one time. I always enjoy it - especially one on one with my youngest who I feel I don't get a lot of time alone with.

It is wonderful that you are doing this. It will be great for all of you!

What a great idea! We are finding it harder and harder to spend one-on-one time with each child. Thanks for the suggestion.
