Double Date

We all know that having kids changes everything! This morning I realized that dates have a different meaning now because of our kids. By reading the title of this post you probably assumed that Chad and I had a double date with our friends...not so much! Chad and Tucker had breakfast this morning at the Blue Chair. We did not have any sugar for Chad's coffee, so he decided he and Tuck would have a boy's morning out. We dropped them off on our way to dance and they walked home when they were finished.

Meanwhile, Caroline and I needed to go to Monteagle to the grocery store. On the way there she told me that she was hungry and wanted something to eat. I decided that the girls would have a breakfast date, too! We ended up going to the Waffle House (keeping in mind that our choices are limited) so she could get a waffle because Gus had a waffle for breakfast yesterday. Sure enough, she ate her waffle and I had bacon and eggs.

It was really nice to have one on one time with the kids because that doesn't happen very often. We are making a conscious effort to spend time with each of them and really get to know each child as our son and daughter. (I cannot imagine having 4, 5 or 6 kids!!) We are pretty sure we "know" Caroline, but it is still nice for her to be the only child since she didn't have many months of that before Tucker came along. It is also great to be with just Tucker. He is such a great little boy with lots of personality that sometimes gets overlooked because of Caroline's big personality. What fun we are having spending time with these two wonderful kiddos!
