We are trying a new thing where we take one child out for a day with just mom and dad. We can only choose one child a month because of the cost of a sitter for the other for. With this schedule, each child will get a turn 3 times a year, not too bad.
First up was CG. She chose a day at the local children's museum and to go to the local Super Store to spend her birthday money on a scooter. We also splurged and had small treats from Sonic. Curly was also allowed to choose dinner that night. She chose spaghetti. I had just made 3 jars of spaghetti sauce, so it was perfect.
