Yesterday Brian and Jacob spent the evening here.




Watching these guys.



While Jack and I watched this.


I am so ashamed to admit that I rarely get one-on-one time with each of my boys. Jack and I had so much fun on our "Mom Date" last night. We caught the 5:00 showing of HSM3, shopped for new shirts and jammies at Kohl's and shared spaghetti at Carrabba's. All of Jack's favorites!

He was feeling a bit left out....or as he put it, "I got the shaft".....when dad and Jacob went to the football game. The weather was really not appropriate for Jack, so his consolation prize was a date with mom. So, I ignored the mounding laundry and the dust that is beginning to recieve its mail at our house, and I headed out with Jack.

We had so much fun! I know he had fun because it was all about Jack. I had fun just listening to his wisdom. I really can learn alot from a 5 year old. The conversation was such fun. Being able to get down on his level, I realize just how much he looks up to his dad. I could not ask for a better role model for my children than their dad!

Brian had just as much fun with Jacob and I did with Jack. My goal for the coming months is to spend more one-on-one time with the boys. Each day I realize just how quickly the time passes.
