One on One Time

September 21, 2012

I dropped off my two older ones at school like I do every morning. Only today, I won’t be picking them up. My dancing bee is going to her friends house for a sleepover. Middle and her friend have been begging for a few weeks now and we finally managed to find a weekend that worked for all of us. So, she’s off to her friend’s house after school, riding the school bus which she is super excited about. It’s a novelty for this car rider!!! 🙂

My boy is of for quick getaway with the hubby. They are heading to Cocoa Beach for the air show tomorrow. Hubby got really, really, really lucky and managed to get a room in a hotel that’s right on the beach in the middle of the flight line. How cool is that? And to make this deal even sweeter he got it for a great price. So, my boys will be hanging at the beach tomorrow watching some of our military might fly over.

Meanwhile, it will be just Little One and I until we have to pick up Middle tomorrow. Little One is super excited because she gets me all to herself and she gets to sleep on daddy’s side of the bed. 😉 We are hoping to head to the park later today but the weather may not play along.

If it does end up raining, like it’s threatening to, I may just take her to a movie. I think, she’ll love that. We’ll see… And if all else fails she can just do more of what you see in the pictures. “Steal” her sister’s laptop and play games on Nick Jr.!!! She just discovered Blue’s Clues on Netflix and has been watching, playing and acting it out. I’ve caught myself more than once singing the theme song. It’s been around this house for about 10 years after all! 😉

I look forward to some quiet time with my Little princess and a nice quiet dinner with our neighbor tonight. While everyone else is out having fun, I’ll relax and soak up the solitude and quiet. After the past few frantic weeks it’s just what the doctor ordered. And maybe, just maybe I’ll get some work done in the process too…

Linking up with My Time as Mom and Mamatrack.

    I hope you enjoy your time with your little – while it lasts….
    My 3 yr old will start preschool on Monday. I homeschool my 3rd grader, as you know, but I don’t have the materials, space, nor energy to homeschool a preschooler too. So off she goes for $620 a month! (At least, it is close by and it’s a Christian school!) I will miss my toddler-ish girl, but I am looking forward to giving some much needed attention to my 7 year old. Although the baby will still be around, I am hoping we will get a lot more schoolwork done around here. 😉

      Good luck with all that. It’s going to be a bit different with her gone. Gosh, $629 a month for preschool… try a week here!!!

    Ah, enjoy your special weekend 🙂

    • Susi September 21, 2012 at 11:38 pm

      Thanks, Lucy. I am enjoying it. 🙂

    Mail call……’s the mail it never fails it makes me want to wag my tail……sorry, couldn’t resist.
    I have to say, of all the kids shows I have had to endure over the years, Blues Clues is absolutely one of my faves.
    Little looks so much like my Zoo Zoo with all that blond hair. Zoo Zoo just discovered my new laptop has a Dora game on it. I can see there will be a battle for my new toy……and mama doesn’t share well with others! LOL
    enjoy your time!

      I’ve noticed the resemblance before too. My little one gets to play with sissy’s lap top and mommy’s tablet… she’ll be a tech geek before she hits elementary school!!! Right now she’s snoring away next to me while I watch Twilight yet again and work away on my own lap top!!! 🙂

  • Megan Broutian September 22, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Sounds like a plan, Susi. Two things: I love, love, love your little boy’s freckles and the little one is mini-Susi with long hair… and possibly a future blogger ? She looks so comfortable with the keyboard 🙂

    • Susi September 22, 2012 at 10:34 pm

      Yes, she does… middle has been asking about a blog already! She’ll do it eventually… and my boy, well, he’s not so little anymore. 🙁

    I hope you ladies had a blast! I love stolen moments with my children one-on-one. And I hope the others enjoyed their time away.

    Thanks for linking up!

      We did have a wonderful time so far and enjoying an extra day of just the girls! 🙂

  • Kimberly September 23, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    Love. Love. I only have the one little guy but when it’s just us…minus the husband…I savour those times.

    • Susi September 23, 2012 at 10:49 pm

      We’ve been having a few girl times lately while the hubby was off with our boy. It’s nice to have that alone time every once in a while… we enjoyed it! 🙂

  • Kimberly September 24, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    I love the special one on one time with the kids! I hope you had a great weekend!

    • Susi September 24, 2012 at 10:34 pm

      Thanks, Kimberly. I had a great time first with one and then with both my girls! 🙂

  • Jessica September 24, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    It’s always nice when you can get some alone time with one kid at a time. I do that each week with mine. Hope you had fun.

    • Susi September 24, 2012 at 10:33 pm

      Thanks. We did have so much fun and I enjoyed our time together. 🙂

  • Kerry September 26, 2012 at 6:23 am

    Awww your little girl is so cute, she has awesome blonde hair!! Enjoy your time together and more importantly, enjoy your ‘quiet’ house and some solitude 🙂

    • Susi September 27, 2012 at 9:19 am

      Kerry, we sure did. Have a lot of fun and enjoyed the quiet time. 🙂
