Mommy-Haley Breakfasts

Now that I'm a mom of two, I find that one of my biggest struggles is making sure that I get to spend quality time with both of my kids. A lot of days are definitely one sided depending on what stage each one of them is in. Saturday morning Haley came into our room bright and earl as she does every morning and I asked her what she would like to have for breakfast. She told me "buh-bye car". I asked her if she wanted to go out to breakfast and she said her emphatic "Yes" through binky teeth. I asked Jeff if he wanted to go out for breakfast too and he suggested that she and I go out by ourselves for a girls breakfast. We had such a great time just the two of us sitting at the table at IHOP. We colored, traced our hands, made funny faces at each other and just had fun without Kale or Daddy to steal each others attention. It was so much fun. It's my hope that we can continue to do this as Haley continues to get older.
This is the self portrait we took before we headed out that morning. The binky's days are numbered (especially when they hide her beautiful "CHEESE" smile).
