{Just me and him}

An impromptu date was in order. I'd been out of state for 4 days-my first time away from any of them not counting when I was in the hospital to have each of them...

It seemed to affect Gabe the most-acting out towards me once I was home. I decided he needed some one on one mom time...

So we hit McD's for vanilla cones (before dinner!)....


Man, the kid needs a haircut!!




Gonna steal it... :)




And I brought Daddy's old duck call so we could go by the duckpond at the park. Quacking at them is about as good as feeding them it seemed...


Did some sliding.



And some spinning.

And more spinning....



Lots of sliding and swinging.


So glad we ran out to do this yesterday. We both needed it.
As I type I'm listening to the wind and rain hit the windows and wondering if there isn't a little hail mixed in-it's loud! Making it a very lazy day around here...Yawn!

you are a good mommy.

i recall when my kids were younger, realizing that the discipline needed to cure their attitudes was on some occasions quality time.

ice cream, a walk hand-in hand, or just a game between the two of us, brought them back into the security of our love,back into being known, and changed their attitudes to respect.

lovely post.
