Fridays with Jack

With all the activities, school work and life in general, especially now that his sister doesn't want to nap anymore, there's not much time for Jack and me to chat.

Let me rephrase that.

There's not much time for him to talk to me alone and me to be able to give him my full attention.

So about a month ago we started setting aside Friday night as "our time."

We've been to the movies twice!!

Went to Panera Bread one week.

And tonight was the second production of a local play, "Never Cry Wolf," in which many of his friends were part of. We spent the evening there and then enjoyed figuring out as many opposites as we could on our way home (no connection at all to the play!).

Another positive aspect of mommy/son time is that it leaves daddy/daughter time. With Mattie forsaking all naps, Matt doesn't get to see her much during the week because he gets home so late. He spends quality time with Jack during the time period I'm getting her to sleep and then he puts him to bed.

But mommy/son time was beginning to feel impossible until Fridays with Jack began. It's a win-win for us all.
