The thing about having 2 kids at home is that you don’t get much one-on-one time with either one of them. When Joshua was a baby, it was just me and him at home, so I had a lot of stare-at-my-baby-because-he-is-so-amazing time. I don’t have much of that with Savanna, unfortunately. Even when I am nursing her or changing her diaper, I usually have Joshua hanging off my leg asking me to play with him. I’m not complaining that Joshua wants me to play with him, because who knows how long that will last. I just wish sometimes I had some one-on-one time with my little girl.
So I made today a girls-only day. Cliff took Joshua to music class in the morning and went to visit Cliff’s mom afterwards. I stayed home with Savanna in the morning for some mother-daughter time, then took her to watch a movie with a friend at SilverCity (the “Stars and Stroller” program with lower volume, change table, and free diapers).
It was so nice to just be with Savanna. I took a gazillion pictures of her, played with her, napped with her, and watched a movie together. It almost surprised me to realize how little “focused” time I get to spend with her. It felt so relaxing and so luxurious to just hang out with my little girl.
