New Family Experiences

January 11, 2013

in Parenting, Song of the Week

New York City B&W imageAs this publishes, Sean and I are en route to New York City with our four youngest kids. Two of the four have never been to the city, which makes this trip so much more special. I can’t wait to see their faces as we enter the city, see Times Square, walk through Central Park, view the city from the Empire State Building, ride in a pedicab, and experience the pace of a city like no other. Our daughters will have a wonderful time in American Girl store, and enjoy having an amazing dining experience in their cafe. Nintendo World, FAO Schwartz, and Times Square Toys R Us awaits as well.

Sean and I have discussed our goals personally, professionally, and for our relationship in 2013, but also as a family. In the next year we will phase into being a family with five children. Our weekends with all the kids together has progressed to this first trip. It will be a fun, exciting first, not just for the two children who have not experienced New York City, but for all of us as a family blending.

We can’t wait. For the trip, and for the life that awaits us all.

Happy Friday!

Atypical as it may be for me to share a rap song for Song of the Week, it seemed appropriate with where we are headed for the weekend. Enjoy “Empire State of Mind” by Jay Z and Alicia Keys:

I’ve been seeing a man with children of his own for the past four years. I call his mine when it comes to the kids. I love planning family outings for all of us and I love seeing them blend themselves into a family. Over the Christmas holidays I wasn’t able to spend much time with my boyfriend but all of the kids hung out at his place for the week anyhow, including mine.

I love watching our children interacting and finding their way in this newly-forming family. They had a discussion in the car ride to NYC about whether pets were theirs too or they would be considered a step cat or step dog. It was a great opportunity for Sean and I to tell the kids we just want to be a family–with no steps involved. We are finding our way as well.
