Emily and I went on a date. Just us. We went shopping and got this cute matching sunglasses. Then we hit a few more stores for some window shopping. Lastly we went out to eat. She ordered off of the “adult” menu and ate it all. We took our time and just enjoyed each other. We even got a little silly sometimes. We were able to talk about anything we wanted, and we did.
I really feel that this is important to do for my children right now in our lives. They need to know that they are special as individuals.
I sometimes rely on Emily too much. She is an amazing help. She helps with Tyler with everything. She reads to Katey. She helps with housework, and cooking. She helps with anything I ask her to. I worry that it’s taking away from her “childhood”. After tonight I know that she is happy with it. She still has plenty of time to do what she wishes.
I just want her to know how much I truly love her! She is a very important part of our family!
Emily, I love you!
