There is something special about spending time with just ONE of your kids. To just play with them and do what they want to do. You can almost just visualize them drinking and breathing up the intimacy of such an occasion. I am a firm believer that every child deserves one on one time with each parent. I have come to believe that this particular boy needs lots of this time. He is a different child all together when you are alone with him. He is peaceful and more content. The competition of being # 4 of 4 seems to be a challenge for him. As much as he loves his siblings he needs space from them too. Hard to do in a homeschooling family. So he gets snatched up by one parent or the other for nearly every errand. Perhaps he needs some more structured activities of his own. We'll see. Anyhow... I just love him and our time at some unknown park in Parker, CO.
