A little one-on-one

Rarely do I get to spend a day with just one of my boys...I, personally think it is a great thing, but my ex does not - it's an ALL or NONE kinda deal with him.

Last night Colby went to spend the night with one of his friends, so Sam and I had the house to ourselves.

Sam acts like he will be lost if Colby is not around, but I actually think Sam relishes the time that Colby doesn't have the limelight.

To start out our evening together, Sam and I curled up on the couch and watched a movie and ate popcorn. (Okay. Okay. I admit...Sam watched a movie and ate popcorn. I got so toasty warm with Sam curled up next to me that I took a nap. :)

This morning we ate breakfast together and sat and talked about what we should do with our day. We decided that the Christmas tree really did need to come down (okay. okay. I decided that! But Sam was willing to help.) and we decided we should go check out our fellow bloggers. (okay. okay. THAT was me as well!)

But while we were downstairs, we decided that we needed to have desk chair races. Okay...I guess you really couldn't call them races because we only had one chair...but Sam and I sat together in my desk chair, we put our feet against the wall to push, and we flew across the room screaming "Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!" and then Sam would say, "Again!" and we did it again. and again. and again.

After we were exhausted from our races, (okay. that was me again...I think Sam could have done that all day.) we headed upstairs to take down our tree.

Sam did really well for a while, helping me wrap and box every ornament, but then... he was quiet. Quiet is never a good sign to a mom.

I found him putting our Christmas stockings on as socks.



After he got the first one on, he had to search for a second one.



He was SO proud!


He then found a Santa hat from Colby's first Christmas and started saying, "Ho Ho Ho!"




Yeah...it was a good day... just Sam and me...

  1. That is super cute! And I think one on one time is very important. I'm glad you snuck a little in!
