Love in the Fast Lane
I took time to slip away for some special "Dad time" with each of the boys today. This morning, Logan and I skulked the local comic shops. before hitting Target for the $1.50 popcorn/drink special. Can you say "nutritious lunch?"
This afternoon, Cole and I visited Bristol Motor Speedway. We started by messing around in the museum, but that wasn't enough...upon closer inspection, one of the gates were slightly ajar. (Cue the Mission:Impossible theme song) We slipped through and had the track to ourselves as we checked things out. Cole wanted to sneak the van onto the track, but figured it best that we not spend more time together in the local police station.
The boys had a great day, that is what is important. About a year and a half ago we started doing weekly mom and/or dad dates with the boys. It is a great time to connect with your kid, you will be surprised what they are thinking about, and the conversations that happen, even at four and six. What keeps you from dedicating special time with your family?
