Friday my mom will be making the l--o--n--g ten hour trek north to visit for a week during spring break. (Grandpa, we will miss you!!! You can always change your mind if you want to come too!) I'm already starting to make plans. I never want to miss a moment with my mom and my girls. I love to share those moments of joy and happiness, wondering and learning, laughing and playing with her. Of course, we'll probably do some shopping, walking around the neighborhood, and playing at the park. We'll be reading many books, completing puzzles, and building towers with blocks. (Wonder what the girls will want to do? Oh, and what about you, Grandma?)
As much as I love spending time all together, I've also been thinking that I want to devote some quality one-on-one time with each of my girls. As long as I've known them, even when they were in the 'womb with no view,' they've been a pair, a duo, a twosome. We do most everything together as a family. The two are always together. Always.
I can count on one hand the number of times they have been separated and each time one would call out for the other, wondering where she was. For me, it was heartbreaking, but the girls managed and survived. I think they actually appreciated the little extra attention, even if it was a doctor's appointment or a trip to the emergency room. No one to fight for attention or share Momma with!
They are unique little people with distinct personalities. I need to honor each of my daughters as individuals. My heartstrings are tugging as I write this . . . but I know I will love the time spent alone with each girl. And grandma will enjoy only one also!
