One-on-one time

Every kid needs a little bit of one-on-one time once in a while.  After a particularly emotional day with the kids, I decided to get a sitter and take each kid on a 30 minute date to get a treat and talk about whatever they wanted.

I left 2 of the kids with the sitter and took the other one to get a treat of their choice, and then after 30 minutes switched.  It worked great.  It was just what these kids needed.
 

This cute 6 year old wanted a donut, so I took him to Krispy Kreme.  He loved it.


Jamba Juice was the treat of choice for my favorite 10 year old.

My sweet Lily wanted a "pink shake" so I took her over to McDonalds for her treat.

I am so glad I did this I may make it a weekly event.  It's amazing what a little one-on-one time does for a kid.

  1. This is a very neat idea. Not sure how to implement it in our small town though. Our kids sure wouldn't have a choice. Could just take them over one at a time for a soft serve ice cream cone. But that would only be in the winter. Gotta think on this.
    Thanks for sharing
