fro-yo with my first born
I had a rare afternoon to pick up my oldest from School all by myself. I waited right outside his classroom and when he spotted me he got a big grin and grabbed my hand. I thought to myself how I don't really know how much longer he will hold my hand in front of a school full of kids so I squeezed a little bit tighter and asked him all about his day. I suggested we stop for frozen yogurt after running a few errands and he was thrilled and full of conversation.
We talked about family traditions, hoping to save up enough money to afford a membership at the YMCA, his other front tooth that is about to fall out (he has yet to put that first one under his pillow for the tooth fairy, insisting on keeping it :)) and his cousins of course. It was such a huge blessing to find this sliver of time, as a Mom of four it is so hard to fit in quality one on one time with each one of my babes and I could tell he needed it and so did I. Love you Simon Hayes but quit growing up so fast...three more months until you're seven, how is that even possible?! xoxo
