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.
