We have had a nice, quiet weekend so far. The temperatures have taken another dip down, so we haven’t been outdoors as much as we would like to be, but we’ve found plenty to keep us occupied with indoors – like blocks, books, and baby dolls.
Yesterday my husband got up early and surprised our oldest daughter with a daddy/daughter date at the pancake restaurant. He snapped a picture with his phone and sent it to me so that I could see her smile.
With an almost five year age difference between Jillian and the little kids, it is important to Christopher and I that she gets some one on one time with each of us so that she knows we love her and value her, too (even though it might seem like the louder, less independent younger kids eat up a lot of our attention).
Plus, pancakes twice in one week? Who wouldn’t love that?
