Of Dates with the Kids

One thing Curtis and I started doing several months ago that we have really been enjoying is taking turns having weekly dates with the kids. It is so nice to have one-on-one time with them to just giggle and talk about things they are interested in, and find out how they are doing. Usually we just do something inexpensive--Jamba Juice or ice cream somewhere, the pet store, a walk or bikeride, computer games, or pedicures in the living room...sometimes it is grocery shopping, although we try to find a fun treat to eat at home in bed while snuggling and reading a book...

The hope is that if we can continue this (and I think we can--both the kids and their parents LOVE it!), when they are teenagers, (or even younger) it will be a good venue to discuss issues and concerns they (or we) might have.
