So, you know how they say every now and then, you need to take the time for a child and show them how important they are by giving them your undivided attention? Well I did that, a few weeks ago, when Savannah and Donovan Hurley were at the house. Savannah asked if I would play a game said, "Let's play a game," and went and got one. So, I reluctantly cheerfully agreed.
We played. It was slightly torturous with the little boys, but everyone had a good time.
Fast forward to Monday of this week. I had agreed to keep Donovan during Melissa's hair appointment, in exchange for her having kept Zachary during Michael's dentist appointment. But Savannah hasn't felt well enough to go to school lately, so Melissa asked what she wanted to do that afternoon. Options were:
1: go to school
2: go with mommy to the hairdressers where last time she got nail polish and stuff
3: go to Marie's with Donovan
She picked #3. When Melissa was telling me this, I said "Really? I thought she might want to stay with Mommy?" And Savannah, "No, I want to play a game with you."
Awwwwww. NOW I remember how that feels. Thanks.
