Chris and I recently decided that each week we would try to do something with one of us and Ada. Just Ada. Not "a baby and Ada" and not "take Ada on an errand." (Okay, so we still take her on errands, but an errand doesn't count as the "fun thing" of the week.)
Two weeks ago I took Ada to the Children's Museum. Last week she and Chris went to the waffle window. And for the past two weeks, I have picked up Ada from school and biked her over to a local photo booth.
Two Birds, 9/30/09
Taking Ada to the photo booth kills two birds with one stone; it is a special activity that only she and I get to do, and it allows me to indulge regularly in something I love. Even better, we've been biking on these little jaunts. Ada loves to be carted around in the trailer, and it is yet another thing she can do that the babies can not.
I am going to keep doing this with her as long as she wants to keep going with me.
