Simon and Mommy Date

Today was Elias’ last day of preschool for the year. Before preschool started in January, I had a lot of grand plans for what I was going to do with those two hours. I thought Simon and I would get to spend so much quality time together one on one. What did I actually do with the time? Most weeks I drug him around on errand after errand. He was a good sport about it, but it wasn’t fun. I did get a few play dates in there….but mostly just errands.

So I was feeling a little bit sad and a little bit guilty last night when I realized it was my last chance until September. So off to the zoo we went! Man was it crowded! But it was fun nonetheless.

I am always surprised when I am one on one with one of the boys at how relaxed I feel. I never felt so relaxed when Elias was the only child, and I certainly don’t feel so relaxed when I am alone with both boys. But just one? A piece of cake! It was so much fun just focusing on Simon and what he wanted to see and do for a little over an hour. Here are some pictures from our mommy son date:

Notice how perfectly I angled this shot…with the sleeping sea lion poking out right between our heads.

P1170879Oh these cheeks! I love these cheeks!
