Saturday morning FishChick was the first to awake, shortly after I stumbled down the stairs, hoping for a little quiet time to myself. But, how do you turn that face away?
I admit, it’s not that hard sometimes. I get too busy. Or so I think. And turn on a video for her or let her play games on the iPad while I “try to get something done”.
Saturday I had the grace to just wait on my to do list. And we played together, building Lego for a good hour.
Neither one of us are that experienced with Lego, but we put our best efforts forward. It helps when you have such bright colors and some fancy accessories.
I get the credit for the idea to build a Starbucks. Ahem. That’s where she and I have gone on many a mother-daughter date. We made baristas and people waiting in line. Eventually, we even had a drive-thru window. Ha!
FishChick5 gets the credit for setting up this chick with a croissant and a basket of stuff from the farmer’s market.
It was a really precious time, just playing, just the two of us. We didn’t have any deep, philosophical talks. But, we had time together, building, creating, playing, connecting.
It’s something I need to do more of.
