With Drew starting Kindergarten this year he and I haven't had a lot of just mommy and Drew time. Jaedyn and I have been spending a lot of time together because she is at home with me during the day. She has been with me to the doctors while Kyle and Drew do boy stuff and been to bridal showers with me while Kyle and Drew have gone to the movies.
On Monday I had a doctors appointment to go to. I schedule them for when Kyle gets off of work so that he can watch one or both of the kids. On Monday, I decided to see if Drew wanted to come with me. I had to sneak him downstairs and whisper in his ear so Jaedyn wouldn't hear because she would have cried if she knew I was leaving the house without her (turns out she was perfectly happy spending quality time with her dad that afternoon. They got to go get sodas, and go to the store and spend their own quality time together).
Anyway, he decided to come with me and as we were driving off I was thanking him for coming and he kept telling me he didn't want me to be alone. Anyway, as we are heading to the doctors (it is a 40-45 minute trip). He started telling me, "This is the best day ever!" I asked him what made it the best day ever and he would tell me, "Mommy and me time." I love that boy! We had a great time at the doctors office. He got to hear the babies heartbeat and talk to the doctor and nurses, and look at books, and pictures of other babies. Afterward, we went through the Taco Bell/Pizza Hut drive through and bought us each Pepperoni Personal Pan Pizzas (Drew's favorite meal is pizza) and then headed to Target because I had procrastinated long enough on putting together Halloween costumes. Drew wanted to be Mario (Mario and Luigi) and I was going to put together a costume but finding overalls at the last minute was a little difficult (ok, I didn't try to hard). So as we were walking through the costume isles we found a Nascar racer outfit and it was RED (his favorite color). He has been getting into NASCAR lately with his dad so he was excited to have it. After we went to look for a costume for Jaedyn. She wants to be Han Tanna, a.k.a. Hanna Montana. I found her some cute clothes that I mixed and matched in the girls department and with a blowup guitar that I bought from walmart and doing her hair up and letting her wear makeup, I think she will be just happy.
Anyway, Drew and I had a great afternoon together and all throughout that afternoon he kept telling me, "This is the best day EVER!" And I have to agree with him, it was the best day ever. But of course all of my days with my little family are the best days ever.
I love you Andrew!
