It can be hard to plan one on one time with your kiddos, so we are going to try something to ensure our daughter gets quality alone time once a month with either Mom or Dad. On Hadley’s birthday date of each month, (her birthday is the 21st, so on or around the 21st of each month), she gets to have a “date” with just Mom or Dad. Having it on the same date each month, or around that date, makes it easy to plan. Plus, it lets Hadley have something to look forward to each month that is special to her.
Hadley and her dad had a pool date! After Kevin got off work at the firehouse, they went up to the pool after dinner and hung out together. The pool was jam packed! But, they had a shortage of lifeguards so they could only swim for a half an hour at a time, so the lifeguards could have breaks.
It’s been so so so hot lately, and the pool has felt amazing! She worked on her dives, played games, and just had a great time hanging with just her dad.
She loves the idea of having special one on one time with her parents each month. We are going to take turns each month so we both get a chance to have our time with her throughout the year. I’m not saying we don’t get one on one time with her; I get a lot of time with her with my husband’s work schedule, but there is something special about planning something each month with her. It can be as simple as playing board games in the basement, coloring for an hour, going to a playground and eating dinner, just simple things. The point is, to be with just her and give her our undivided attention.
Happy Summer folks!
