A Mommy/Son Date

Today John and I had a date. One of the challenges of having multiple children is spreading your attention to everyone. I know there are times that one or the other is overlooked and that is just life, but I like to think I really do try to make sure eacha child is loved individually. So John and I went on a play date with some friends, just him and I. Miss Sophia got to spend the morning with Mrs. Jessica and her girls.
John woke up at 5:45 this morning excited for our date. I love that he was excited, even though I told him to go back to sleep because it wasn't time. Later, we headed over to Summit Waves ($2 if you go during kid time 8:30-10:00), then to the park and ended at Jimmy Johns for lunch where we got a special treat because it was a date....a chocolate chip cookie!!
It was great. My little guy will turn 3 on Thursday and I am just amazed at how grown up he is. He just talks like crazy and says the funniest things. An example was Jenna hadn't shown up yet to the play date. He asked where she was and I said that she was just running a little late. His response was "Well, I should call her and tell her the plan so she can find us when she decides she wants to show up." As he was saying this he has his hands on his hips and shaking his finger. Wonder where he got that from??
Anyway, it was a great day. I do love having 2 kids, but when I get to spend some one on one time with them, it is so special.
I have decided to start having a date night with John once a month. Just him and I hanging out. When Little Miss gets a little older, we will start going girl places to have a girls night out. I can't wait!!
