    Would it be wrong to say, take him to the shopping mall pictured in the next post?

  2. Jenny says:

    Read him books, color/paint, snuggle with him, answer all of his “How Come Mom?” questions!!! I love observing him and thinking, that’s my son!

    Favorite? That’s a toughie. I love to take them to cultural type stuff, or outdoorsy stuff, or extended family stuff. I love reading with them, snuggling in my bed with them, and watching them “perform.” I’m not sure I have a “favorite.”

  4. Jason says:

    I would have to say mowing the lawn, kicking the soccer ball around, and just about everything else, except trying to get him to bed!

    Depends on the season. It’s fun to go snowshoeing with them or sledding, I like playing kickball with them in the summer and going for boat rides. I LOVE listening to Christopher read and he loves reading to me. Toby loves to wrestle with them.

    In my case, it’s the greats, and I like singing and dancing with them and taking them to the park. Actually I like doing pretty much anything with them. They’re totally great fun!!! :O

    This is hard to answer. I love fishing with him on the boat. It’s just the 3 of us, and that’s my favorite time with my family.

    Every 3rd Saturday, we go to our local library for a couple hours. Then we hit up DQ if it’s open. There are shops we love to go in, “this and that” type shops. Antique/crafts stores. Yes, my son who is ALL boy does like to go antiquing with me. 🙂 That’s probably my favorite alone time with him.

    Definitely reading. Or playing. hmmm… going to his stuff and seeing him do really well. Taking him shopping and letting him go off and do his thing – he’s right at the age where he’s starting to learn how to be independent, how to buy things, etc. I let him go into the gas station by himself the other day to buy his snack, and he was SO PROUD of himself when he came out and counted the change into my hand. So yeah… that, too. Teaching him to be independent.

    So I guess, everything, except when I’m being Mean Mommy.

    This IS hard to answer. I love everything about being with them. I love to watch them in things at school where I see where they will one day fit into society. I like watching them interact with their peers. I like watching them play ball, basketball and wrestle. I love being with them at the cabin setting and on the boat.

    I think what I like most is JUST being with them and chillin. Doing whatever they want to do because this is grandma’s house and it’s their soft place to land.

    I like witnessing my kids experience new things whether it be trying a new food, seeing a new place, or starting a new hobby. LIVING

    I think the answers to this question have been my most favorite to read. It really puts life into perspective when you picture all of these activities taking place.

    Hard to pick out a favorite. But I’m going to go with hiking. We really make an adventure out of it. One time we even saw an owl perched in a tree. We see red tail hawks and lots of other birds but the birds of prey are cool. We turn ver logs and look for bugs and often find slalamanders and frogs and of course the occassional snake!

    We also look for (and identify) various animal tracks around water. It’s just so much fun to watch their faces when they “get” something and are able to point out things on their own.
