On Sunday, my almost 4 year old and I snuck away for a little mama/son time. He’s a good sport about letting his little brother be a mommy-hog, so it was nice to have some uninterrupted time together.
When I think about Elijah it’s hard not to beam with pride. But after reading Bragging Rights from Momastery a while back, I’ve struggled with what to say and what not to say about my kids. Social media is a weird thing. I admire those who use social media to brag on their little ones, and then I equally respect those who leave their kids out of it. I feel like I’m stuck somewhere in the middle. Am I even making and sense?
But back to our date.
We headed to the hot springs and spent a few hours swimming in the different pools. We even braved the snow and ran out into the outdoor naturally heated pool. He can’t swim yet, so I got lots of hugs and we had lots of conversation!
(I might not be fancy, but I just need to clarify that this it not my hair style… we were just leaving the pool! Typically, I wouldn’t have even put myself in the picture, but with this month’s self challenge I had to squeeze in.)
It was nothing extravagant, but just a reminded how fun it is to get a little some time with just one child.
