When I was a single parent to three young daughters, I craved time alone with each of them. I loved doing things all together and I still do, but it can be challenging. There is and was definitely more group surface conversations and then there were even disagreements about what to do or where to eat. When they were little this often dissolved into frustrations and even fighting. I hated when everyone got upset and argued with each other; then if I got involved or was perceived to “take a side”, they would get mad at me. On those rare occasions when I was able to hang out with just one daughter at a time, it was pure bliss. Now they are grown adults so they usually determine what to do or where to eat with relative ease when we are all together, but there is still something so special about spending time one on one with each of them. This weekend I was able to have time with all three of my daughters separately, and it was wonderful. I was able to do what each of them like to do and really connect with them. I encourage everyone with young kids to find those times that you can be with just one child. I absolutely love being together as a family, but I cherish these special moments with each one too.
