Hanging Out with E

The girls are both busy. Very busy. Every day. We are caught up with living in the moment that sometimes we take those moments for granted and don’t enjoy them each to fullest. Then, in just a quick blink of an eye, those moments turn into years passing by. They’ve grown up too quickly.

B and E are on the same skating team and the same poms team at school. They take the same dance classes. They pretty much follow the same schedule. Every day. Their time is booked from early mornings until evenings, late. It’s hard for us to carve out time for each one of them, alone.

B was away for the weekend. Paul worked both days. It was just E and I. I saw the opportunity so I grabbed it and held on tight. We spent time watching movies, snuggled up in my bed, like we used to when she was little and there was an abundance of time. We shopped and ran errands. We laughed. We ate ice cream. We talked. We laughed some more. We planned. We held hands. We got closer, and then closer still.

I enjoyed every moment with E this weekend. These little moments may be the big moments that she’ll remember and love the most.
