Tonight Ciaran and I went out for dinner with his Nana and Granda for his special date night. Unfortunately, he was a little under the weather (we are all fighting colds/flu) and was quite off for the majority of the meal. He spent most of his time playing on the iPad - he needed this outlet to become comfortable/accustomed to the environment. A good reminder for me - sometimes I need to be patient and not push situations that Ciaran is not ready for. He is such an enigma to me sometimes - so unpredictable - so spot-on some days and so off on others.
Whatever the case, he enjoyed the 1:1 time…I look forward to many more dates this year with my sons.
