An idea, let's hope it works..

The last couple of weeks have been a little hectic around here, getting back to schedules, two girls in school, planning lunches, you know the routines of back to school.
Jennifer now being in grade one has changed schedules the most, she is going to school all day everyday. I have noticed some behaviour changes with her the last couple of weeks, I put them down to changes in routine, the teacher was even involved in one incident.
Being a very mature, precocious little girl I can tell when something is bothering her immediately, so I sat her down and we talked a great lengths.I finally figured out from our discussion what has been going on, she is missing Mommy time, she thinks her sister is getting more than her share now that she is school full time and her sister is still home every other day.
I come up with the idea that once or twice a month it will be big girl day for Jennifer and I, anything she'd like to do with Mom.
I am hoping this will help, I know I can't wait for some one on one, I have been missing her too.

LOVE the new header. And I think Big Girl Day is a wonderful idea. I always have to be careful with Tyler and make sure that we are having some one on one time. He's the classic 'middle child' and points it out to me all the time. So, I try to focus on him whenever I can.

This sounds like an excellent idea...and I think it is very common!

I still see the look in Nick's eyes when we drop him off at school in the morning...very envious of Sarah...

I am sure Jennifer will love the one on one time with Mommy..

PS...love the new fall header!

P.S. You are such an amazing mommy and knew something was going on with your baby girl.

Big girl day is a wonderful idea! And kudos for realizing something was not quite right. I hope I have that sixth sense with Kerri when the time comes.

I think big-girl day is the perfect solution. She'll thrive on it, and it will give you both the opportunity to bond on her current level. I think it will be a joy for both of you!
