Moments To Remember
~ Little Surfer Dude is 3.4 years ~
~Week Ending November 25th ~
Moments to Remember was developed as a simple way to look back on our week as homeschoolers and find photos that encompass the memories we want to remember.The week may have been tough, there may have been more bumps than smiles, but in the end these are the moments that keep us going, the ones we need to remember.
This week, the older two had birthday parties and play dates arranged, so Little Surfer Dude and I got to spend a few rare hours on our own.
We both love and cherish these times. It's so hard to get some special time with each of your kiddo's on their own. You really do need to make the effort with this.
Cultivating those special bonds, that can really only truly grow from, special one on one time, is something that I have been working on with each of the children.
Generally it is because we have something practical to achieve, a haircut, new shoes or clothes. But I choose to use that time to also spend 'alone time' with that particular child. We go out, get done what we need to get done and then generally have some yummy lunch (kids choice) and if time permits do something else together.
These, "Kid Dates" have been invaluable to me and my children.
Little Surfer Dude is in the 'loving baby chino's' stage, so after spending some time at home cuddling, reading and playing, we met my mum for morning tea and a baby chino....a giant one at that, gee they have grown!!
He is so delightfully gorgeous, I just wish I could bundle him up and keep at this stage of his life forever!
