Our time spent alone

I try and create “special alone time” with my kids as much as possible.  With the girl, it involves some sort of art project, dress-up play, a dance party in the living room, or storytime in “mama’s bed”.  “Special alone time” usually takes place during the baby’s nap and it’s always structured around a “kid- lead” activity. The stuff that she comes up with is hilarious and creative. She makes up song lyrics about “the Mexican snow” and often asks if toys have blood in their bodies. She loves to rhyme, and she shakes her hips to salsa music. I think we both benefit from our one-on-one reconnection when it happens.  Lately, we’ve been going on little adventures…..
The girl, prior to yelling “MAMA IS HE A STRANGER?” “HOW ABOUT THE LADY WITH THE YELLOW BIG HAIR, IS SHE A STRANGER TOO?!”. 
We talked about what Christopher Robin eats over a huge muffin that she barely touched.
I had mixed feelings about starting the corruption at three and a half…but she LOVES getting her nails done and it’s nice for me to be able to get the occasional pedicure too!
and….she waits politely for her mama
getting ready for her big performance…
