Making time for the older sibling

A lot of my attention these days is focused on Bentley. He needs me in a way only a teeny-tiny baby can, and that often means that Fynn does not get as much of my undivided attention as she used to. The weeks that I went back to work were particularly tough and I was feeling like I wasn't giving her enough attention and that we just weren't spending enough time together.

The Friday after school got out, Fynn and I went on a Mommy/Daughter date to a nearby farm that does a Friday morning tour for families. Fynn and I went last summer, but I thought she'd love it more now that she's older and that it meant time alone with me. 

The farm itself was awesome. Fynn had a blast checking out the horses, pigs, sheep, and goats. She LOVED milking her first cow, and even though she was nervous around the chickens, she really enjoyed petting one and collecting eggs. The whole morning she kept telling me that it was "so much fun". After the farm, we went out to lunch together and did a little shopping before heading home. It's been 3 weeks since our farm morning, and she still talks about how much she liked it. I'm thinking another day like this needs to happen soon, it was great for both of us.
