Since I returned to work after my second mat leave, every weekend, I take Joshua on a “date”. Sometimes we run errands, sometimes we go play at the park, sometimes we go for a walk. It’s always just the two of us. The point is that we spend some time together that’s special for us.
One of his favorite things to do on our date is to go to the coffee shop a block away, eat a slice of banana bread, and drink a cup of water. Today we went to that coffee shop again. He let me take a picture of him. He also wanted to share my chair, so he snuggled right next to me. It was like heaven for me.
