Little Dates with my Big Boy

Since Archie arrived and turned our little three into a family of four, I haven't had much time to spend with Dylan.  After 18 months of having my sole attention, he now has to share it with a rather deamanding little brother.  Considering what a huge change this is, he has coped so amazingly well, but I miss the little things that we used to do together.

Archie, being both breastfed and quite clingy has not made it easy for me to leave him, but we are finally at that stage where a little independence is welcome and I am looking forward to lots of little dates with my big boy over the winter.  

This weekend, I managed to get a couple of hours alone with my toddler and it was liberating to leave the buggy and the changing bag at home and head to the park for some one on one time.  We walked and we talked, we climbed, we swung, we slid and we did plenty of giggling.  We enjoyed each others company and we made the most of it.

It may only be a couple of hours every once in a while, but I loved spending time with my wonderful toddler with no distractions and I could see that he loved it too.

I love my boys and our family of four, but I think it is so important to give them all that special attention too.  


  1. It does feel so funny to go out without a buggy and a changing bag doesn't it! I got a little one on one time with my biggest girl when her sister was having a nursery settling session and just took a little bag out and I kept thinking I'd forgotten something. It was wonderful to be able to solely focus on her and so much fun!

  2. He's so scrummy Bex. Look at his face! He's going to be such a heartbreaker! Looks like you both had a lovely time. xx

  3. How cool does Dylan look? I love his outfit! This is something I've been worrying about with us expecting another two, I love spending time with Lucas but I know that it will be a big adjustment for all of us. Even at the moment the babies take time away from him because I'm not as energetic as I was! It sounds like a lovely way to give Dylan that one on one time x

  4. What gorgeous photos - Dylan is so cute and obviously had a fantastic time with some 1-2-1 attention from Mummy. Thanks for linking up and sharing your fun with Country Kids.
