As a single parent, it is a rare luxury to find quality time to spend one-on-one with my three children. Today, I am doing just that: spending the whole day with my daughter, Kaitlyn. Kailtyn was kind enough to take a day off school to come visit me and escort me to one of my radiation appointments. We are making the most of our time together in the city. Last night we got dressed up, met some friends at a nice restaurant, and enjoyed a delicious seafood crepe with spinach salad. We started today with a walk through Bowring Park, where we stopped to feed the ducks, and engage in a lively discussion on whether ducks actually have teeth. (Kaitlyn’s friend, Haley, insists that one smiled at her and she saw a distinct tooth!)
Next it was off to Cora’s for a healthy brunch, followed by a mini shopping spree. But alas, all good things must come to an end and by 5:00 I was abandoned for a “friend” who is a boy, but apparently not a “boyfriend”.
Tip: When you are fighting the Big C, it is even more important than ever to make the most of your time with your loved ones.
