I like the driving idea I might just have to add that one in!
He is good about not texting when we are doing stuff together. I do appreciate that a lot.
And yeah... me watching TV with the girl and him playing on the computer doesn't count.
I WOULD count snuggling on the couch watching a movie, though.
