Chit-Chat Time

One of my favorite times of the day
is when Simon gets home from Preschool.
We come home,
put his backpack down,
get cleaned up,
prepare a yummy snack (for both of us),
and sit down at his little table for Chit-Chat Time. I LOVE this!
We talk about the day...
what new friend he has made,
what centers he liked best,
what his "job" of the week is,
what his favorite part about school is,
and so on and so on...
It is so special to spend time together chatting about
all the new things that are going on in his life.
He loves sharing, giggling about it, and
telling me all the details...
I LOVE seeing his face light up
as I see my little boy
growing up!
People say, "Oh, they grow up so fast."
I believe it...
that's why I don't want to miss a beat.
As long as he's willing to share,
I'll sit there for hours
and listen to my boy do his little chit-chat.

My boys are in Grade 2 & 3 now. My fave is to bake cookies right before the bus drops them off so that the yummy aroma welcomes them home. Then we have milk and cookies (in my plain white cup and saucers- not because it's a boy thing but because they are perfect dipping cups). It makes me feel like a good mom and I hope that it makes them feel loved. I'm sure your little one feels loved during chit chat time. I think you are a wise woman savoring the time.
