a date with my boy.

{his absolute favorite ride at Wally World, he asks for Pumba every trip!}

We knew it would take some adjusting adding a baby, and overall I think we have all done a pretty good job. Savannah is a huge help, and loves to play Mommy. Devin is probably the cutest to watch with his little sister...he will get in her face and say "Hey Babe!". It is really adorable!

As much as Devin loves her, we have noticed little changes in him. He wants to sleep with me at night, and he is struggling to fall asleep. Paul decided that it was time to take action before it got all sorts of out of control.

I took Devin on a little date...just the two of us.
Paul braved the girls at home, and we just hoped Bri wouldn't get hungry while I was gone. :)

I could tell right away that it was what he needed and wanted. He asked me if I could hold him, and I did the entire time {gosh, he is a big kid!!}. When I would ask him if he wanted to walk...he would quickly say "No, hold you!". 

We went and played cranes, because that kid can't get enough of those. We went and bought a new bubble machine, and those bubbles were gone in less than hour of being home. We stopped and got him treats at the gas station...he begged for a Coke, and popcorn.

We both came home tired, and he went right to sleep for a nap.

I am learning how to juggle 3 kids, and this is definitely my first lesson...everyone needs alone time. It doesn't have to be something extravagent, but I need to remember that they all want my undivided attention...and this includes my husband.

Don't forget to include yourself with alone time with you! They'll all survive while you have a bath or walk around the block or read a chapter of a book!

You are such a good Mom! And I second what Heather said - make sure you make time for yourself, too.

Yes to the last little line...including the husband. My poor husband looked at me last night and said, "NO ONE EATS WITH ME ANYMORE, OR RELAXES WITH ME, OR TALKS TO ME!" I felt soooo bad. Sometimes when things are crazy with the kids I forget about my hubby :(

So true, I always forget the husband. :)
