It was cold and dark and I said, "I'll get it. You watch the boys and I'll be back."
Then I realized what I had actually said.
I have not left Bodhi since he was born. Even to go get take-out.
Wow. I know, I know...
Then Z wanted to go.
I kind of wanted to be alone for twenty-five minutes. Even just picking up food.
Then I realized even more what that meant.
I haven't spent any time with just Z since Bodhi was born.
So what did I do?
If you know me, you know the answer.
I ended up saying, "Come on! Get your shoes on."
We cranked up the music and
We didn't really have time to explore too much but being together was a special break for both of us. He even got to pick a special "dude drink" and help carry food to the car.
I want to take him out alone again soon.
I love that little man and I almost forgot how special it was when it was just him and me. This mama and her little dude have a special bond and I've got to savor that. I've been so caught up in taking care of both of them, I haven't spent enough time with each of them alone.
I'm glad he asked to go. As always, he opened my eyes a little more.

Bodhi was in my belly.
