As a single Momma, I try my darndest to be able to have one on one time with each kiddo. This weekend I was able to get some good quality alone time with both of them.
Friday night, Lilly and I went to see a really awesome local musician play a live show. We went to Lestat’s in
Here we are before we headed to the show. She was really into the movie she was watching and as usual, didn’t want to pose for a picture. She HATES pictures. Please excuse our vampire eyes…darn red-eye removal got out of control. LOL
Here is the artist we saw, Gregory Page. ♥
On Sunday, we tried to figure out what we all wanted to do. The kids rarely agree on anything and Sunday was no exception. Lilly wanted to go to the movies and Riley wanted to go to the beach. My mom offered for Lilly to come over and hang out with them for a bit and she was happy about that. That gave me the opportunity to spend a little bit of quality time with Riley!! We threw our beach toys and towels in the car and headed to the beach. It is only a 15 or 20 minute drive to our favorite beach spot…Riley took that time to catch a cat nap on the way. SO cute!!!
We had fun jumping in the waves and playing in the sand. We even saw dolphins playing!
I always wanted to have 2 kids. What I didn’t plan for was being divorced, having a child on the spectrum, and having one child absolutely despise the other child. Most days and activities are just not fun because one kid is usually pissed off or crying.
This weekend was no exception…but I did get a little glimpse of what it is like to just have one happy child at a time…and I absolutely loved every second of it.
