tonight i was reminded how important one on one time with my kids is. luke and i found ourselves with a little more than 30 minutes to spare so i asked if he wanted to run into pints and quarts for an appetizer - he looked up and said, "just you and me? YEAH!!!" he chose our table and asked that i sit next to him (we were totally cute sitting on the same side of the high-top table). over the next thirty minutes we laughed. he told me all about his field trip. talked to me about his friends. he shared deep thoughts with me including things that make him sad. we laughed more. he virtually talked my ear off. i loved every minute of it.
