I've been asked out on a date. Mikey has been asking me for a while now when he could take me on a date. I said, "Well you're going to have to talk to Daddy about that." So the other night at dinner, he said, "Daddy, I want to take Mommy out on a date. I need the car and cash." :o) We made arrangments for our date to take place tonight. Mikey woke up this morning and was on cloud 9! Joel and he were talking in the kitchen and Joel said, "So, you're going to be taking out my woman, huh?" Mikey said, "Yup." Joel said, "Where are you taking her?" Mikey said, "To the restaurant, to the dollar store and to the flower store." Joel said, "Well, treat her right and don't keep her out too late." Mikey agreed and Joel gave him a "mess your hair up" pat on the head as only dads can do. When it came time to leave, my sweet Mikey came running downstairs with change "jingaling" in his pocket. He patted his jeans and said, "Ok Mommy, I'm ready to go." So, off we went....
We decided on alternate transportation and I drove. Our first stop, the dollar store and how convenient! there were flowers there. He stood deciding while I pretended not to look....a little difficult while taking a picture. :o)
He decided on these:
Then it was off to Friendlys. We were having fun, just coloring and chatting. Then, in the lull of a moment he said, "So Mommy, how you liking the date?" I said, "Oh honey! I love it! It's one of the best dates I've ever been on." He said, "Even with Daddy?!" This was one of those, "Is it ok to lie to your kids" moments. So, I dodged the question altogether and said, "Mikey, you make me so happy. All I can think about is you right now."
This little sugar is going to make some lady very happy one day. :o)
