Since Colby & Kennedy have started school, Carlee and I get to be pals three mornings a week (most weeks). I have thoroughly enjoyed only taking ONE child to the grocery store, to run errands, and to otherwise spend some great quality time with only Carlee. Especially since the baby will be here in less than 8 weeks.
This is in the welcome area of Kennedy’s preschool. I have been so used to “hurry-up and let’s go to the next thing”, but one morning Carlee asked to stop and play here. Without hesitation, I said yes. And then she told me to take her picture. So I did.
It’s also really nice not having to drag more than 1 kiddo to the OB for check-ups. One day Carlee decided it was her mission to clean up the doctor’s office with the tub of baby wipes on the counter. And my doctor didn’t even blink an eye when he saw all the wipes in the trash. Carlee has always been a helper in wanting to clean up, and I’m so thankful for her willingness to help.
