A little time with Alyssa

Gillian is quite busy this year. She's a cheerleader, a Daisy (girls scouts) and started CCD (church school) this year too. Alyssa and I have been spending a lot of time together and I've been loving it! She is hysterical. She uses words like actually and unexpected correctly. She likes to tell me stories about what happens at daycare. Like who got in trouble and that they danced to Achy Breaky Heart. She also is a huge Katy Perry Fan. Her absolute favorite is Hot and Cold which she sings and has a dance that goes with it. She has the biggest heart herself too. She loves her friends but adores her family especially her sister. She talks about her even whebn she's not around. I think sometimes the second child doesn't always get as much one on one time. Well at least that's what happened with us. So even thought it means Gillian is growing up and gaining some independence ...it has been really nice to have some time with just Alyssa and I can tell she loves it just as much as me..

This post makes me happy because I agree that somehow the older child seems to always get more attention. (In our house he demands it:)I'm so glad to hear that you and Alyssa are enjoying each other!!

That happens in every family. Your time keeps dividing as each child enters your life. Glad you and Alyssa are having your special time together!

I know what you mean! It is hard to find time some alone time with our second.. and when we do, we really appreciate it, don't we?
Love you, Kath! And I miss you! We need to catch up soon!

I think the one-on-one time is super important. It's VERY rare at my house, but whenever I can, I try to get some alone time with one of the kids. Usually, it's just bringing one of them along with me on a trip to the store or something, but you'd be surprised how much fun they think it is when it's JUST us!

Ahhh that is so awesome to have that time. I know my youngest loves when we have that one on one time.
