Taking time to smell the roses

I hate to admit it but we (Kevin & I) have gotten into the hustle and bustle of Christmas. You know the running around trying to find the perfect gift, getting the Christmas cards written, the groceries purchased, cookies made, giftbags for the preschool class, etc. I love this time of year. I love everything about this season...Jesus' birth and the commerical stuff too. I love all of these things but I feel like I have been dragging Zachary around EVERYWHERE with me. Ususally we spend every afternoon at home but this month we are on the go until about 4 oclock. He's pooped, I'm pooped and we are not enjoying each other. So one afternoon we decided to stop and smell the roses. We stop by Barnes & Noble and had some Hot Chocolate & a very hard cookie. It was nice to just relax and talk with one another. I really think Z enjoyed it too. However several times during our "date" he informed me that this is where he goes on dates with "Grammy" (my mom). He was very concerned that we were at his and Grammy's spot.

That is awesome! I completely understand the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, and like you I love every minute of it. It is wonderful how being busy for weeks on end can make you even more appreciative for the quiet times with your kiddo. And it's fantastic that your mom takes Zachary out for little "dates" too. He is lucky to have such a wonderful Grammy!
