Today, Daniel is home with Daddy again, but Emma had a friend, Joe, come over. Joe is another child I also babysit now and again and this was their first time meeting. Joe is 3, so a little older than Emma but after a little shyness they definitely hit it off! We made another trip to the park (third time this week!) and they had so much fun playing and digging in the sand, I wasn't sure they would ever want to leave. Eventually, they reluctantly agreed to go when it was time for Emma's rest.
I really enjoyed having Joe come over to play because it gave me one on one time with Eve, which I worry I don't always give her enough of. When you begin watching more than one child, and especially when one is yours there's always a little worry of if everyone is getting the attention they deserve. I try my best to give everyone the same, but I am not a super human some days Emma, Eve or Daniel can get just a little left out. I love when Daniel has his daddy days, because it makes me appreciate the days that he is with me even more. Today, I learned that he took his first few steps with his walking toy (its a dino!) and I won't lie I was very sad I missed it. But, luckily he will do it again and I am glad daddy was able to see this, because he missed the very first crawling.
