Sunday Snapshot {Taking Time Out}

from the littles. I don't do this often but feel that it is important to take time out and do things solo with the big kids every now and then.

Today was Hannah's turn. She (and I) had been wanting to see the new Twighlight movie since it came out but then DH changed jobs and then he went to China and then to San Fran for business and well you get the idea. So when he said hey, how about today, I jumped all over it. After all, being a single mom to six the past two weeks wasn't easy.

The movie wasn't as good as the book. Yes, I read all of them, I had to to make sure they were ok for Hannah. (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) LOL
But the important thing is we did it together, just the two of us. We had fun, until the power went out. But that was ok to. We got two free tickets for our trouble, saw the end of the movie after a couple minutes and ended at the book store.

Ni Hao Y'all

So glad you & your big (beautiful) girl got to have some time together today - it is soo important. In fact, my big boy is asking me to play Wii with him right now (I'd rather do ANYTHING else!!)

We have "dates" with our kiddos too! Great way to spend 1 on 1 time! I read the twilight series as well...loved it. The movies thus far have not been as good as the books..maybe next one?

Oh . . . I love a date night with my big girl. So glad you got to have one!
There's just something so special about one-on-one time with the older one!

I read the books just to see what it was all about...and the second and third times were to do the same (my story LOL). Glad you had some girl time!!

Sounds like you and your daughter had a wonderful time together!!

My oldest daughter and I also try to get out and do things together away from our Littles as well! :)

I also read the whole series....I wanted to see what my daughter was into as well....(that's my story, too!)

Thanks again for sponsoring Pearl from AOW and sharing your blog with me!!! I so enjoy meeting new friends and my 'job' as sponsorship coordinator allows me to do just that!

It's great to have one on one time. I read the Twilight series (also to make sure it was OK for our daughter... really, that's why...). We haven't seen the movies, but I keep hearing that they aren't as good as the books too.
