Lastly, I am trying to enjoy my final weeks with just two kids. Though I keep telling them that things are going to change when the baby gets here, I am not sure they get it yet. So, I took advantage of a scheduling problem Steve and I had today, and set aside a date with each child.
After our quick lunch date, I returned him to school so I could get my hair cut and colored one last time before this baby arrives (priorities people). Following that appointment, I hightailed it back to Bennett's school to pick her up, and then over to Preston's school to pick him up. We ran a couple of errands, and then met Steve back at the house. He and Pres were meeting a friend and his son for some guy's time, while Bennett and I had a date.
I wanted to take her for a real pedicure, and then out for dinner. This place has the little kid chairs so the girl's feet can easily reach the water, along with DVD players to keep them entertained. Bennett selected her color, was offered a juice box, and got comfortable in her fancy chair. She was fascinated with the bath salts while her feet soaked, laughed when they filed her nails (she is ticklish), and thoroughly enjoyed her leg massage. She felt and looked like such a big girl After her pedicure, we went out for pizza, where we colored and chatted before our dinner arrived.
It really was a nice day, and a great way to hang with the kids individually. They each thrive with that quality alone time. Five and a half more weeks to go for this family of four!
