But my kids miss their mama.
To counter act the time, and to be sure my kids still will still know my name when I finish school, we implemented date night. Every other week, I take one of my boys out for dinner. Just me and him.
Last week, I took out my oldest. He's the quiet one, so I'm actually more concerned about losing touch with him. He's 11 now, and I know the teen years will be here much too soon. Gotta start focusing on that relationship now. Like, yesterday now.
Tonight, my youngest and I are going out. He's the spunky one.
Those of us in the south are familiar with the term "talk your ears off". As in, "that boy will talk your ears off". That's him. Never met a stranger, never been shy. Pretty much says anything and everything that's on his mind - whether you want to hear it or not.
Wonder where he get's that from? ;o)
Enjoy your night!!!
