One on One

Having a big family is fun! It's busy and loud and crazy.

Getting time one on one with our kids can be challenging. Cam and I try to take one child with when running an errand. It's a nice (quiet) time to focus on that one child. We can chat and take a few moments to connect without interruptions. 

I've been working at finding time...or making time to break out with one kid at a time. It's good for that child and really it's good for me too. 

Our "little" van was recently in the shop. I had to drop it off downtown and then walk home. I asked Mr. P to go with me. We had the nicest time walking home together. Over the three-mile journey we talked (uninterrupted) and laughed. 

The scenery was beautiful and we listened to the birds chirping. 

My boy is getting so grown up. I can feel his boyhood fleeing. I was pleasantly surprised when he reached out and held my hand. 

Kairos moment! 


  1. I can't tell you enough how much I love your blog--I always glean a message (or at least a good laugh or cry) from them. Thank you for reminding me to take pleasure in the seemingly small moments in life. And to not take for granted the one-on-one time I get with my boys.
    Also, next time you have to take in/pick up the van, I would be happy to give you a lift!!

    1. Thanks Kari!! I've added this new feature so I an reply to comments. Very fun. Have fun one on one time this weekend with your sweet boy.
