JUST THE TWO OF US
Oscar: This weekend was all about you
and me. You turned two years old, but instead of having a traditional birthday party and a house filled with family and friends, daddy took your three older brothers away for the entire weekend leaving us to spend some time together - just you and me - for the first time since you were born. I've often felt guilty that I haven't spent enough quality time with you - it's so hard to when your three older siblings constantly compete for my attention, not to mention the hours I spend getting through the endless household chores that need to be done each day.
So today, your second birthday, started off with a sleep-in for both of us, instead of the usual - being woken up at some ungodly hour by the other boys. You snuck into my bed and we cuddled for a while - just the two of us. Then you opened up a simple gift of books and we read them together before heading off to the kitchen to enjoy a quiet and peaceful breakfast alone. The morning was spent playing in the pool and in the afternoon we went for a long and leisurely bike ride returning home at dusk to have dinner and then happily going to bed after a long soak in the bath. I think we should do this more often...
Happy Birthday Sweetheart.
