This morning Chase woke up just about 45 minutes before his sister. He is kind of growing out of that cuddle stage and finding out that cuddle time usually means nap time isn't far to follow, but this morning he welcomed a little cuddle with Mommy. We sat on the patio and listened to the birds sing and watched the squirrels play. Chase and I had a wonderful one-on-one. Inevitably since Chase woke up early that would mean he would go down earlier for his nap which would mean some one-on-one time with Zaya. My sweet girl and I had a cuddle and a book. We read "When you take a Mouse to the Movies" after that we danced and then she let me know she was tired so I kissed her and laid her down for her morning nap. My one-one-one time with Zaya was precious.
I'm learning to enjoy these times even if it means mom doesn't get a break. It's my time to get to know them individually and really enjoy just them. I vow today this is something I will do throughout their lives is make time for them one-on-one.
Today I'm grateful for my one-on-ones.
