My son is 5.
He starts Kindgergarten in 2 weeks.
He goes to Disney World with my parents next week.
Which means....THIS is my last full week with him at home.
I told him I wanted to spend some time with him, gave him a few options:
1-Playground of his choice
2-Go to the pool
3-Go to the movies
4-Go to dinner
He chose #3 and asked if we could see "Despicable ME" and then grab dessert afterward.
I was thrilled at how excited he was. All through dinner, he kept telling Joel, 'Mommy and I have a date and you can't come..."
I forget how important the exclusiveness can be to a child. We added little Leland 9 months ago...and Jude has gotten very little 'one on one' time with us.
We went to the movie, snuggled, laughed, and enjoyed a little East Coast custard. I know he is ready for this season he's moving into...the question is 'Am I?'
