I don't necessarily get much one-on-one time with each kid on a regular basis. We sometimes refer back to the days of "just the two of us".
For Chaco, that was the first 18 months of his life. For Wolfgang, it was the months that Chaco went to Kindergarten every afternoon and Meego wasn't yet born. For Meego it was when the older two were in school and he wasn't.
Yesterday, Chaco and Magnum were in Golden for the science olympiad, and Wolfgang was in Denver at a track meet. So for Meego and me, it was "just the two of us".

And it was a lovely day out, so we took advantage. First, we took the pooch for a beauty walk and visited this feral spot we know of.
It's not far from civilization at all, but it just has this feel to it that makes one start thinking about having to kill something and eat it.
We brought our muddy selves back home, got cleaned up and nourished (stuff bought from a store, not killed at Meego Falls) and soon after headed out for a bike ride while errand running... or errand running while on a bike ride, whichever spin preferred. Stopping for refreshment too of course.
Intermixed with our "just the two of us" was just some usual hanging out doing Saturday stuff like playing with friends and drawing Spiderman.
It was a nice day, a Meego day.
